Belinda Karls-Nace’s EQ7 Design Wins AccuQuilt Barn Quilt 2012 Contest

We must brag. When we asked Belinda Karls-Nace (Des Moines, IA) if she used EQ7 to design the winning block she wrote: “Yes, I am a VERY happy EQ7 user!” Congratulations, Belinda!

Belinda Karls-Nace

Congratulations as well to Carol Johnson (Ontario, Canada), who used EQ7 to create the winning Runner-Up design. Carol says, “I did use EQ7 for this block design. I actually sketched it out on paper and then did the good copy in EQ7. I am still learning the program, little bits at a time… – I absolutely adore my EQ7 software!!”
