“We can never have too many blocks. Submit two copyright free blocks, ones you designed, that are not presently in the EQ Block Library or in any EQ product. You may demonstrate how to use them in a quilt, but you don’t have to. Submitting the two blocks will be terrific. Any kind of block is eligible. Please put a note on the Notecard to identify you as the designer and tell us something about why you designed this particular block.”
