The December FMQ Challenge, where Patsy Thompson showed us how to create spectacular borders using FMQ.

Before I announce the winners of the December Challenge, I want to take time to recognize all of our sponsors:

2012 Free Motion Quilting Challenge



Dream World

Grand Prize winners will be announced later this month.

SewCalGal is proud to recognize our
for the September  Challenge.

Each month, one lucky winner will receive a special bundle of prizes.  For the December challenge, the winner will receive a bundle that includes:
a sample pack of 5 Aurifil threads

A SewSlip mat
Revolving Sewslip images

A Pair of MACHINGERS Quilting Gloves
Quilters Touch LLC

The winner will need to determine the size that is appropriate for them
that shares insight on how to help fit gloves.

SewCalGal is responsible for shipping the prize bundle directly to winners, with the exception that Quilters Touch will be shipping their prize (Machingers gloves and DVD) directly to the respective winner.   As shared previously, this Challenge needs to be about learning/improving our FMQ skills and not about prizes.

The winner of the monthly bundle prize is:

Martha Briese (Quilt to the Edge)

Congratulations to Martha.

Participants of SewCalGal's 2012 FMQ Challenge can link here, during December, to enter to win a monthly!  There will be six lucky winners this month.  One will receive the monthly prize bundle.  And, thanks to Patsy, five winners will receive a copy of her DVD "4th Volume of Free Motion Fun With Feathers".  This DVD is a 2-volume set that covers all kinds of feather border and feather frame designs.  The retail price of this DVD set is $44.95  Winners of this wonderful DVD set will need to pay for shipping, regardless if the winner is a US or International resident.  They will be shipped directly to the winners from Patsy's online store.

The  winners of this DVD set are:
Carolyn (Carolyn's Quilts)
Maryellen M (MaryMack's Blog)

I had also forgot to announce the winner of a bonus monthly prize that was to have been announced when the November Challenge Winner(s) were announced.  This is for the winners choice of  Quiltmaker Quilting Designs software from Volume 1-8, from the Electric Quilt Company.

The lucky winner of their choice of one volume of Quilting Designs is:

Congratulations to all the lucky winners!

A  few reminders:

  • Bonus Tutorials - Many of the bonus tutorials also have giveaways which those that complete the respective tutorial anytime in 2012 can enter to win a prize.  The exception is the December Bonus Tutorial, by Teri Lucas, has a deadline of January 15th.
  • Grand Prize winners will be announced sometime in January.
  • Everyone is encouraged to continue to use the bonus tutorials that were provided for free by FMQ Experts in 2012 till you feel you've mastered them and can apply them on your own quilts.  SewCalGal hopes you will take FMQ classes, buy FMQ books and/or DVDs  and to continue to practice and broaden your FMQ skills.  SewCalGal will be sharing insight about follow-on FMQ Challenges, that will build on your skills that you've learned in 2012.  But for now, I need to focus on wrapping up the 2012 FMQ Challenge.

And, don't forget you can find Patsy at:
