November’s Fabric of the Month is Stars and Stripes 10th Anniversary by Linda Ludovico & Deborah Edwards for Northcott!

As Veteran’s Day is this month, it is only right to feature this wonderful collection, which was originally created in support of Quilts of Valor. You’ll have endless fun designing with this classic palette of red, cream, and blue, which is complimented by American stamps, icons, flags, and more!

A bundle of these fabrics will be given away to two lucky winners! Submit your EQ design featuring Stars and Stripes 10th Anniversary below…all instructions and contest details are in this post. Good luck!

To enter

In order to enter for the giveaway you must submit a quilt using the current Fabric of the Month AND comment on at least one other person’s quilt you like by the end of the month. If you’re the first person to submit a quilt, make sure to come back and comment on someone else’s quilt before the contest ends. Instructions for how to submit an image are at the bottom of this post. Download this month’s Fabric of the Month: Stars and Stripes 10th Anniversary for Northcott.

Note: The Stars and Stripes 10th Anniversary collection contains two panels (not included in the download). It is NOT required that you use the panels in your design, but if you’d like to, you can save the panel image below to your computer (right-click on the image and choose Save Image As – remember where you save it!). After saving the image to your computer, import it into EQ. We have a sample lesson for doing this in EQ8 here

24″ x 43″ panel (perfect for quilt labels!)


  • Your EQ Quilt must be your original design and only use fabrics from this month’s Fabric of the Month.
  • One quilt submission 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.)
  • Participants must use EQ8, EQ7, or EQStitch to design their original quilt.
  • Your quilt design and your comment on someone else’s quilt must be submitted by 11:59pm ET on last day of month.


Two lucky winners will receive a bundle of the Stars and Stripes 10th Anniversary fabrics!!! Winners will be randomly selected. Good luck to all participants, we can’t wait to see your entries!

Note: Entries are welcomed from all. Prize will only be shipped to U.S. and Canada.

We often get requests for the EQ project files or patterns submitted to these design challenges. If you are open to sharing/selling your design, include your email address or website link in your comment so others can contact you!
Note: Replying to someone’s comment below does not alert them in any way so they’d have to know to come back to this blog post to look at other comments. Since not everyone does that, we hope some EQ users will provide their contact information if they are open to sharing/selling their designs. We will not share anyone’s information.

How to submit an image of your quilt design from EQ8:

  1. On the Quilt Worktable, click the PRINT & EXPORT tab.
  2. Click Export in the ribbon.
  3. In the palette on the left, click Image.
