Did you know that EQ Boutique has 120 collections that you can add onto your EQ? Some are block collections and some have quilts already designed! I know it’s a little early for snowmen…but if we actually want to sew these wintery projects we have to get moving! Sindy Rodenmayer has drawn 8 adorable snowmen to play with in EQ. When you purchase the blocks and download them they link right to your EQ! The blocks show up right in your block library! Of course these blocks and can be edited any way you’d like just like all your other EQ blocks. They would be so cute for a table runner, tree skirt, reusable gift bag…so many things!

Every month, we send out several free project downloads to a certain group of people. Want in? Here’s what we’re sending out this month. You like? Get these project downloads! Join in on the fun with Barb Vlack and other EQ users who design quilts for Barb’s monthly challenge! If you submit a quilt that meets the guidelines, you’ll get everyone’s project files at the end! It’s called ClubEQ. What is ClubEQ? ClubEQ is a free club any EQ user can join, simply by using EQ to design a quilt. Club leader, Barb Vlack, presents monthly challenges. Those EQ users who join the challenge (and the fun) send in a project file. These projects are displayed together on the Web. Participants receive projects from all the other challenge participants that month. So send in one project file, and receive many more in return! No sewing necessary! How do you send
