AccuQuilt Block Contest!

Imagine seeing a quilt block you designed as a 17-foot square sign in Nebraska...
Pretty amazing to think about, isn't it?!

And that's just part of the Grand Prize from AccuQuilt's Quilt Block Design can see the remainder of the prizes here. (Pretty impressive!)

We're one of the sponsors of this fantastic contest, so we wanted to make sure that all our Fabri-Quilt friends new about it and had the chance to enter! 

If you don't have an AccuQuilt cutter, don't worry--block designs can be submitted without using die-cut shapes. (And if you do have one, lucky you--they sure are fun!)

You can find all of the entry requirements and details here
but we'll give you a brief overview:
  • Block designs must be submitted digitally. (In other words, you don't actually have to sew the block.)
  • If you don't have block design capabilities on your computer, don't worry--you can even use graph paper and colored pencils (download a printable graph design tool from AccuQuilt here).
  • Winning design will be featured in Quiltmaker magazine, as well as winning a Grand Prize worth over $22,000.
  • Entries will be accepted now through May 27, and voting runs May 1-27. Winners will be chosen by popular vote. (So the sooner you enter your block, the more time people will have to vote for it, starting May 1.)

Again, find all the details you need here!
Let us know if you enter...we'd love to see your block! (See blocks that have already been entered here.)
Good luck!
