We have reached the end of Quarter 3 of the 2019 Finish-A-Long!! Of course, this means it is now time to link up those finishes from the list you linked up in July. We hope that you have been able to complete a lot of the UFOs from your list and if you haven't, we'll do it all over
again for Quarter 4...

The 2019 FAL is hosted by a great community of bloggers. This year our hosts are:

Each finish you link up will be in the draw for great prizes, so let's give a huge thank you to our fantastic sponsors:

 

The 2019 Quarter 3 link for your finishes is now open below on my blog and on each of the hosting blogs - you only need to link on one blog for your finish to appear on all host blogs.

Link-up "Rules"

Add one link for each finish.  If you want to link a round up post of all your finishes, use that link to enter one of your finishes and then link the rest of your finishes separately.  Please, only one link per finish, as your link is an entry into the randomly drawn prize draws.

Please ensure that the photo (Instagram or Flickr) or blog post you link up contains a link or reference back to your original list so that we can verify your entry (make sure it is from the right quarter, too). On Instagram the best way to do that is to tag your photos with #2019FALQ3yourname (where yourname is unique to you), this makes it easier for us to match your finishes with your list, which also should have this tag.

Please become part of the FAL community.  Check out the links of others and leave a comment. We all need encouragement so let's applaud each other. The 2019 FAL Facebook page is HERE and you can follow us on Instagram @finishalong.

Our hosts will also link up their finishes to share in the community but they are not eligible for any of the prizes.

The Q3 Finishes link will stay open from now thru 11 pm, EST, Wednesday, October 9, 2019 - as we are global, you might want to check your time zone to determine your last possible time to link. You can also see how much time is left below the linked up images on the right.  It is best to link up your finishes early and if you have a last minute one, add that one later so you don't miss out.  The prizes will be awarded as soon as we can verify all the entries and do the drawings.  We will post the winners on each host's blog.

Lastly, don't forget to start making your Q4 list as the next LIST link opens on Thursday, October 10, 2019.

The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik and AccuQuilt.

September is over, but my project isn't quite finished. So more to come on this riot of color! Here's a glimpse at one of my finished blocks.

I chose a 10" stack of Island Batik Kaleidoscope for my blocks and used the AccuQuilt GO! 14" Bear's Paw die to cut all my pieces.

You can check out the other Ambassadors' finished projects while you're waiting to see mine. ;-)

Happy Friday! Today Fat Quarter Shop launched their Ocean Waves Quilt Block Pattern. I was one of eight makers to stitch together samples of the block.

 

I chose two fabrics from my scrap bin and got to work!

Using their Triangles on a Roll to stitch up my perfect 2 1/2" finished HSTs. This method was both speedy and effective. You pin your fabrics to the paper, stitch through all three layers on the dotted lines, cut on the solid lines, and remove the paper. I reduced my stitch length as I do with foundation paper piecing, and the newsprint paper was easy to tear away.

 

Fat Quarter Shop is offering a free block tutorial for these 10" finished blocks as well as a complete pattern in four sizes. There's even a quilt kit available!

Happy stitching! See what others are making at #oceanwavesquilt, #fqsquiltalong, and #fatquartershop on social media.
