We’re partnering with Island Batik to bring you a new quilt design challenge featuring the Quilted in Honor fabric collection by Kathy Engle for Island Batik. The Quilted in Honor fabric collection was created to benefit Operation Homefront. You can read more about the Quilted in Honor project by clicking here.
How to Get Started
Visit the Free Fabrics of the Month page and download the new Quilted in Honor collection. You can find instructions on that page about how to link the the Fabric Library to your EQ7.
- You must design your quilt using Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7) design software.
- The quilt design must be colored with Quilted in Honor fabrics ONLY!
- Three design categories to choose from: Pieced, Appliqué, or Combination (pieced + appliqué)
- Any size!
- No sewing required. The “virtual” EQ7 quilt design is all that’s needed to enter.
- One entry per person
On Wednesday, October 1st there will be a blog post where you can link up an image of your quilt design. The link up will be open until Friday, October 3 at 5pm EDT. The winners will be announced shortly after!
Winners will be chosen by special guest judges Annie Unrein and Pat Sloan.
One winner will be chosen from each of the three categories (Pieced, Appliqué, and Combination)
If your quilt makes the top 50 best designs, we will ask you to send us the project file. These will be available for all users as free EQ7 project downloads on DoYouEQ.com!
Each winner will receive:
An Island Batik fabric bundle consisting of 5 yards of their bright and colorful new batiks!
An EQ with Me book of the winner’s choice
And an EQ Stash Online download of their choice
Download the Quilted in Honor fabrics and start designing!
