Quiltmaker and Electric Quilt sponsored a design contest in the fall of 2009. People were asked to submit an original quilt designed in EQ with a creative interpretation of quilting using any of the EQ/QM Quilting Design software series. QM will be making the Grand Prize into a quilt for the designer and patterning it in an upcoming issue. Contestant identities were not revealed during judging.

Now, the fun continues with the Viewer’s Choice portion of our contest that starts tonight at midnight MST. Actually, it will officially open at 11:59 pm. Both Jo and Barb submitted more than one design, but each person can only win one prize. Their remaining designs have been removed from the voting gallery and all qualified entries are now eligible for the Viewer’s Choice. People must register in order to vote and there is only one vote per person. The voting will remain open until Tuesday, January 5 at 11:59 pm MST. Good luck to all!
