2012 Finish-A-Long coming right “A-Long”


Such a cheesy title but I couldn’t resist. I thought I would give all you an update on the 2012 Finish-A-Long I will be hosting here. Here are a few of the ideas I plan on implementing:

  • At the beginning of each quarter we will do a linky party for your Pre-Quarter blogs posts. This post will list the items you want to complete for the appropriate quarter – pictures are encouraged. A few details to include: when project was started, plans to finish, plans for project, and any other relevant information. 
  • At the end of the each quarter we will do another linky party for your Post-Quarter blog posts. In this post you get to brag about all your great finishes (with pictures of course…how else can you get true bragging rights?). You get credit (one entry) for each finish but only if they were listed in your Pre-Quarter Post. Remember: You don’t get deducted for things not finished so dream big! It is from this Linky Party that prizes will be awarded.
  • The Post-Quarter Linky Party will run for one week. At the end of that week I will announce the winners and have the next Pre-Linky Party.**edited to add**: During this week I hope to have some Guest bloggers post some tutorials!
  • So, in summary, there will be 8 linky parties in 2012 (4 Pre-Quarter and 4 Post-Quarter). There will be 4 chances to win prizes. 
  • I am in the process of working out a collaboration and their FB page. The collaboration will be with one of the sponsors for this event who wanted do this in her shop for 2012. More on this as details are ironed out. 
  • The first linky party will be on Sunday, January 1, 2012. It will remain open for 7 days.

If you can think of anything I may have missed or have an idea to share with me, please do! My brain will only go so far…seriously…have you heard my podcast?

If you would like to be a Guest Blogger and share a tutorial please email me.

Oh….there is one thing I need….a button…. I will do my best to work on that but don’t expect much LOL

I have secured prizes from the following sponsors so far:

Aurifil Threads
The Intrepid Thread
kiss kiss….quilt
of course….Me

I have a couple more sponsors who will get back to me. I could use a few more so if you are interested please let me know.

This is going to be so much fun!! I can’t wait to see what everyone does with this incentive!!

NOTE: Come back tomorrow for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!!!

  1. I'm in, I already know which ufo will be the first on my list! Thanks for all the work on this.

  2. Sounds like it will be fun. However, I have no unfinished projects at this time. But I will watch and read anyway because I love your blog!

  3. Sounds great! I don't have much in the way of UFOs and WIP but I do have plans! This is a great incentive to get started 🙂

  4. Hmm, the big question is what to put up and when, this could be a tactical game lol

  5. This is a really neat idea. could give me that push in the butt to finish some projects!

  6. there was a recent 'button creation' tutorial somewher… Why can I not find these when I want them!
    If I can track it down do you want it? Or can you manage really? I suspect the latter.
    Good plan though!Go for it with the linkies.

  7. Yay! Is this open to quilty and non quilty alike?

  8. You have put a lot of thought into this, should keep us all on our toes in 2012.

  9. Wow, so organised to 2012 already! Sounds fun!

  10. Love the fact that its quarterly… Might get some things done then. Find that months aren't long enough!

  11. Sounds complicated. I will just follow your blog and see how it all goes. May join in next time. Good luck to all who do join in.
