Do you EQ? Here is a great challenge that you may want to enter:
AccuQuilt is sponsoring a challenge for EQ users to design using any of their dies. If your design is selected, you will win a bundle of new dies that will be launched in October plus major bragging rights! Your designs could be used in future GO! die packaging, project sheets, and patterns.
AccuQuilt recommends using at least 3 dies per pattern. Projects submitted must be a quilt, table runner, or wall hanging. Project sizes must be under 48” x 72” in size. Projects should use at least three fabrics/colors (AccuQuilt color palette preferred). All projects should be rated for a beginner to intermediate quilt level. All styles of quilts from traditional to contemporary will be accepted, but fabric crafts and apparel will not be considered at this time.
If your design is selected, we would own the rights to your design. You will be acknowledged as the designer. AccuQuilt retains all rights to those designs selected.
No Studio designs will be accepted at this time
Last day to submit designs is Thursday, September 30th
Winners will be contacted via email, by AccuQuilt, for follow up including obtaining the written instructions for pattern.
Electric Quilt also has some tips on their FAQ page for designing with AccuQuilt blocks.
