First, I want to thank all of the FMQ Experts that helped with this challenge by providing such wonderful tutorials. With out their support this challenge would never had happened and many would not have had a chance to learn/improve their FMQ skills, as well as learn about each FMQ Expert and a variety of products appropriate for those that enjoy doing FMQ on a domestic sewing machine.
SewCalGal says thank you to all the FMQ Experts
I also want to recognize and thank all of the sponsors for this challenge as they have wonderful products that are certainly perfect for those interested in FMQ and they generously donated wonderful prizes.
SewCalGal says thank you to all the Sponsors who generously donated prizes for the Monthly Challenges and bonus tutorial challenges:
SewCalGal says thank you to all the Sponsors who generously donated Grand Prizes for those that completed 12 or more tutorials in 2012.
There were over 2,000 quilters that participated in this challenge. It was fun to see everyone learn and improve their FMQ skills, as well as have fun, throughout the year.
I also want to recognize and thank several Postage Angels who have recently donated to help with postage expenses. This has helped to cover the shipping cost for prizes for this challenge and the September challenge too! If you have a chance, I hope you visit their blogs and let them know that you too appreciate their help as Postage Angels for the 2012 FMQ Challenge. They are wonderful people and have delightful blogs!

My sincere apologies if I have overlooked other Postage Angels. I tried to go thru my notes, but fear I may have left some of you off. Please know I do appreciate your help with postage expenses, very much.
