Link up your Quilted in Honor Quilt Design Challenge entries here!
We’ve partnered with Island Batik to bring you a 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.
Here’s a quick recap of the rules:
- You must design your quilt using Electric Quilt 7 (EQ7) design software.
- The quilt design must be colored with Quilted in Honor fabrics ONLY! (Download the fabrics here. The QIH fabrics are part of the October – July 2014 fabric library.)
- 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
Scroll down to the comment form at the end of this post. Fill in your info and make sure you select an image for your comment (this will be the image of your quilt). The link up will be open until Friday, October 3 at 5pm EST. Winner 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)
