At the end of each quarter (i.e. March, June, September & December), an extra prize will be awarded randomly from those who met their goals in any/all of the 3 months in that quarter.  Aurifil and Green Fairy Quilts have provided prizes for the quarterly winners.

Finally, each time you join the linkup, you earn an entry into the Grand Finale prize drawing! Link up in the goal setting and the finish linkup each month of the year earns 24 entries into the Grand Finale prize drawing.

  5. I want to post from IG instead of flickr. So does that mean if I use the # and @ from IG I don't have to post on the linkup page?

  8. I was too late to do the link up at the beginning of January. I hope I can figure it out for February. I have never done a Linky thing. Hoping this very old quilter can learn this new trick.8-) My 'word' for 2018 is 'Finish', so this would really help with that.
