This year at EQ we are going to do a Block of the Month. We have 12 brand new blocks drawn in EQ7 for the next 12 months. The Block of the Month will be available to EQers and non-EQers alike. An EQ7 project file and PDF of the pattern will be available from our blog each month.

Now for the fun part. If you sew your block that month and email us a picture for us to post on our site, you get one entry for the contest to win a free Kaleidoscope Collection CD (add-on for EQ5, EQ6, or EQ7). If you sew all 12 blocks and email in pictures, you get 12 entries. (One entry per person per month.)

At the end of the 12 months we will have a layout challenge. We will post some layout ideas, but we want to see what you can come up with! We will accept pictures of the finished quilt or virtual designs in your EQ7 project at that time. We will have another prize for the one that knocks our socks off.

So each month, visit our blog to get the next pattern and to see the results from the previous month.

If you have an EQ club, this would be a great group activity!
