A Lovely Year of Finishes – January Finishes Party!

January is finally starting to wind down, which means we have come to the end of our first linky party! I think it can be categorically agreed upon that this first month was a rousing success. There are more than 350 people finishing with us over on Flickr. We had 218 entries into our goal setting party and I cannot wait to see all the finishes for this month.  Remember you can link up here or over at Shanna’s blog, Fiber of All Sorts, no need to sign up twice.

Here is my finish for January 2013 – I am so excited because I finished it with plenty of time to spare but it also went to a loving home who needed a little sunshine on the day it arrived. (I blogged about it here.)

Front - Wonky Log Cabin Quilt

Now, it’s your turn, what did you finish?!?  Remember in order to be eligible for prizes you need to have linked up to our first party as well as this finishes party. If you didn’t link up to the first party we would still love to see what you finished, you just will not be eligible for prizes this month.  The next goal setting party will go up on February 1st and we have added some fantastic sponsors for next month! So Grab a button and show us your work!

    I’m not quite finished with the Flower Fairies, but I did finish another American Hero top, and that’s as far as I go with those. I mail them and someone else quilts and finishes them. I can’t believe it’s already the end of the month, almost!

    Yea for Finishes! It looks very cheerful. Blessing others is the best thing about quilting. I just found your blog tonight. Hope to join in in Feb. I am trying to finish one project a month. Yikes ….. just one more week in January. Time to put the pedal to the metal. Thanks for the motivation. Janita
