Feed Dog
is hosting a contest to win an AccuQuilt GO! I love this contest because it’s all about creativity and not the luck of the draw. To enter, visit his blog for details. But basically, you need to design a block using the AccuQuilt GO! dies. Feed Dog writes about how to design your block:
“There are a couple ways. If you use EQ7, you can download block libraries featuring AccuQuilt shapes and drop them into a quilt design—I showed a couple blocks I made with EQ in this post. You can still enter if you don’t have EQ7, though: just download this PDF with a selection of die shapes (each page shows a different die), print it, cut the shapes out, and arrange them to design a block out of paper or fabric. These die shapes are best for appliqué, but you could design a pieced block using other Go dies if you like. You don’t have to sew anything—just show us what you could do if you won the cutter and dies”.

Entries are due August 26 and other details are on Feed Dog’s blog at:http://feeddog.blogspot.com/2011/08/giveaway-accuquilt-block-design-contest.html.

Use this EQ7 tutorial from Feed Doog to help you deisgn your entry: Changing block size and merging shapes into a single EQ block.

Thanks for the great contest and info here Feed Dog!
