The winners of Q4 of the 2013 FAL

she can quilt

Today is the last of my 2013 FAL hosting duties. I have to say it has been a blast to host the Finish-A-Long. I have met new bloggers, seen fantastic work, met generous sponsors and worked with talented tutorial writers. Thank you to everyone who has participated in and supported the 2013 FAL. 

As I read through all the Q4 links, I was again inspired - by the beautiful projects and by the fantastic stories behind the projects. I tried to comment on at least one finish from each of you, but if I missed you rest assured it was due to my lack of time, as all the of finishes are lovely. 

If you have time, visit the finishes (go here for Q4) and comment if you can, as I know everyone loves comments on their finishes. Also, I will keep my 2013 FAL page open indefinitely, and it has links to all the tutorials and all the 2013 link up pages for your future reference.

Now, without further ado, here are the Q4 FAL winners, all chosen by the random number generator. Congratulations to each of you and I will be emailing each winner later today. If you see yourself here first, please email me.
