It may be the middle of winter, but we're already quilting for spring! For this upcoming contest, we're asking designers to create a cheater quilt block with a spring floral theme. What is a cheater quilt block, you say? Cheater quilt blocks feature fabric designed and printed to look like patchwork or applique so that you can skip the piecework and go straight for quilting!
Block designs will be previewed at the fat quarter size, but you can choose whether you want your block to fill that space or to measure a different size, like our example. You could even center your block design and included pieces to be appliquéd to other blocks. All designs submitted must use colors from our restricted palette (see the palette below, and you may also include white in your design), and previews will be shown at (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is January 7th, 2014.
