  • Your EQ quilt design must use fabrics from the Ki-Coo Gardens collection. (Up to 2 other solid colors may be used if desired.)
  • One entry per person. (If a second entry is submitted within 24 hours of the original entry, we will accept the more recent entry. For example, if you submit an incomplete quilt, or the wrong quilt from your sketchbook, you can correct it and submit again within 24 hours.)


Two winners will be chosen at random on November 1, 2018. The winners will be announced right here on this blog post so check back on that day!

The winners will be mailed a fat-quarter bundle of Ki-Coo Gardens fabrics from Marcus Brothers!

Due to shipping costs and billing limitations, Marcus Brothers can only ship the fabric to US/Canada residents.

Good luck to all participants! We can’t wait to see your designs!  :-D
