The HoopSisters are doing a Mystery Quilt! The Mystery Quilt went on sale on June 1st and the 100th person to purchase won an EQ7. The lucky person was Ann Hibbs! She won an EQ7! Here is a little info about the HoopSisters Mystery Quilt: The Mystery Quilt is only available as a set in the month of June. You can purchase the Mystery Quilt and you’ll receive a new set of files each week for the next six weeks. You’ll have no idea what the final layout looks like until the final week! HoopSisters will give you Electric Quilt files in their weekly downloads so you can see more of the quilt revealed each week! You can fill out a “Be A Mystery Quilter” form to start receiving special Mystery Quilt news and offers.

SewCalGal is hosting a Blog Hop! It’s kicking off her Year of Red and White Quilt Challenges. We hope to inspire you to use EQ and enter SewCalGal’s upcoming Design It! Quilt Challenge. It kicks off on February 10th and goes thru March 23rd. Designs of any size can be entered in this challenge, but they need to be your own design and have a red and white theme to them. (You do not need to use EQ to enter your design.) There is also a Make It! Challenge for those that want to make their design (or a project from any purchased design or tutorial). The more you enter the more chances you’ll have to win prizes! We hope you’ll find many inspirational projects shared in this EQ Blog Hop as well as tips and tutorials.
