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!
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!!”
Winner of Boutique Designer Contest
Why do we let Penny come up with these contests? We wonder! Once again it was unclear: did she want the number of “Designers” or “Designer Collections” on MyEQBoutique? Who knew? So we chose 2 winners who each win a STASH of their choice.
Winner for # of DESIGNER COLLECTIONS
Winner for # of DESIGNERS
Rommy van Houten
