I have to admit that I prefer last decade’s Finish-A-Long (FAL) format. I’m much more of a blogger than an Instagram poster. I actually go onto IG fairly often, but for some reason, I drag my heels on posting. I think a big part of it is that many of the people that I make gifts for are on IG and tend to see my posts. Most of those same people don’t read my blog posts with any kind of regularity (if at all!), so I tend to share a lot more freely on my blog.
I had 8 items on my FAL Quarter 1 goal list. Here’s what happened with them:
Stargazer (Modified) Quilt,Finished—blogged and posted on IG
Mime Kitty Quilt, quilted—moved to Quarter 2
Mug Rug—leftover HST of my mom’s—no interest in finishing it right now
Queen Size Medallion Lanterns quilt, Finished—blogged and posted on IG
Sparkler Mini Quilt—on hold for now
“Cheater” Turquoise Christas Tree Quilt—moved to Quarter 2
Reel Time Mug Rugs, Finished—blogged but did not post on IG
Camping Placemats, Finished—blogged but did not post on IG

It’s quite a list, but the projects aren’t super complicated, so I hope to have a successful second quarter of 2020. What do you have going on in the next few months?
Hi Mary! This list is SO doable. Several just need bindings – come on, girl. You have this in shades. I can’t wait – I can’t WAIT to see Glimmers of Gold all finished. Your sneak peek on IG shows it is fab. ~smile~ Roseanne
you know I agree with you. I do use instagram a lot, far too much, every day. But I liked the fact that the finish a long was blog based. Easy to find and all in one place!
