As promised here is BLOCK #8 of our 2011 Block of the Month on our blog. It’s called August Amusement.
Deadline for submitting your block picture to email@example.com for a chance to win is September 1, 2011 8am Eastern.
Click here to download the EQ7 project for August.
Use any fabrics you want! Use your favorites! Challenge yourself with a new color scheme! If you have EQ7, you can try out the colors before cutting the fabric for the block.
Here are some colorway ideas:
Sew the block and send your picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you send in the picture, you get one entry for the contest to win a free Digital Essentials book in September. Each month we’ll have a new prize, so email in a picture of your quilt block to enter. (One entry per person per month.) Pictures will be added to this blog in a Finished Blocks post with your name. A winner will be chosen on September 1, 2011 for August’s block.
Don’t worry about sending a professional photograph. As long as it isn’t on too much of an angle and I can see the whole block and the image is over 400px, I can crop it for the blog.
New block patterns will be posted at the beginning of each month. Winners from the previous month will be chosen at the beginning of each month.
Note: These block patterns are for personal use only. Please do not include them in published works.
