Win EQ7!!!

This contest is now closed. To see the winner please go to the May 21st blog entry! Thanks everyone for entering!


Hurray!!! I am so excited to announce that I am having a contest to give away the all new version of the Electric Quilt - EQ7. Thanks to the generousity of the Electric Quilt Company 10 bloggers were chosen to have contests to give away EQ7 and I was one of them! I am so excited to be doing this. EQ has been a part of my life for many years and it is an incredible quilt design tool. I am thrilled that I am able to give someone the chance to love it as much as I do! Check out all the new features! This is a quilt design program for every level of quilter and every level of computer user! It is a design tool no one should be without!


So a contest we will have! I know you are all excited to win so this is how you enter!

Just leave me a comment and tell me whether you have a previous version of EQ and what you want to design - traditional quilts or contemporary quilts. It's that easy. Please just one comment per person!

Do you want bonus entries? Here are 2 ways to get bonus entries!

1)  If you have a version of EQ right now then design something and email me the image of your quilt and I'll give you one bonus entry. If you don't have EQ then you can draw a quilt design, take a picture of it or scan it and email that to me. I may post your image on my blog too!

2) If you post something about this contest on your blog with a link to my contest then I'll give you a bonus entry too! Just send me an email with a link to your blog!

And for anyone who may not know, you can find my email in my profile!

  4. What a great contest Ann... I used to have the EQ4 but was too busy working full-time to use it. Now that I am part-time I would love to learn the new EQ7 and do contemporary quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I do not have EQ but have had my eye on it for sometime. I would probably design a quilt I could sew on the treadle I just purchased first but then some modern quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Sweet! I have EQ6 and would love the nifty features available in EQ7. I just posted a quilt I designed on my blog (feel free to borrow the images)

    ReplyDelete
  9. So nice that you won. I love seeing all these lucky people, still wish I was one of them. I have used my moms EQ6 but dont have my own copy. I like contemporary quilts mostly but I still like some traditionals too.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Congrats on your win! I have EQ5 but never upgraded to 6. I've made both but seem to lean a bit more towards contemporary quilts or if it's traditional then it's with a twist. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Congratulations! I have version 6 and love to play around with block settings and layouts.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Congratulations!! I also have 6, Dear Jane, Dear Hannah & Farmer's Wife. I love a modern approach to traditional quilting...and I'm a bit obsessed with 1930s prints.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I used to have eq4 (a looong time ago) and lost it - would love to have the new version! I love antique quilts and replacating things I have seen, usually with a little bit of a contemporary twist. Thanks for the opportunity!

  41. Congratulations on the win! I would like to be entered in your drawing. I have EQ since v.4. I tend to design more traditional quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Congratuations on the win! I started using EQ when version 6 came out - friends told me I just had to have it and they were right! I do both traditional and contemporary projects with it, offer EQ file downloads on my blog and BOM projects in pdf for those who don't use it. Especially love it for drawing applique - so much better than paper and pencil (and large eraser). It makes it so easy to share with other quilters.

  44. Congratulations - I don't have any version of EQ - was thinking about 6 and had asked for it for Christmas when suddenly I heard about 7. I want to design photo-mosaic type quilts as well as some contemporary. I can't get the extra entry for designing something because I don't have the tools to work with...YET! :-(

    ReplyDelete
  47. Congratulations! What a fantastic prize, and then to be able to share the joy - woohoo! I've been using EQ6 since the Christmas after it came out, and I had EQ5 before that. It's a joy to work with, and I'm looking forward to EQ7. Thanks for the opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Congratulations on your win. I haven't experienced EQ before and would love the chance to play. A win would make the experience so much more exciting, plus save me having to save up for it.

    ReplyDelete

  129. Chances are nil that I will win but I will try. I do not have EQ at all. I have read much about it but don't have it. I would design both contemporary and new age quilts. I would try many many different designs, form what I have read the sky is the limit. Let's see what happens.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Wow, what a great opportunity! I have EQ 5 but working FT didn't leave me much time to play so I never learned to fully use it. I can draw basic quilt designs. What fun it'd be to win this now that I'm retired!

    ReplyDelete

  132. Oooh, lucky thing! I have had EQ5 for about 5 years and have designed and made over 60 quilts with it in that time. I'd describe my designs as traditional with a twist. I'll find a design I haven't made yet to email you...

  142. Congratulations on being one of the lucky 10. I do not have any EQ and began to realize how much that would help when designing a quilt to use a specific fabric called Dance with the Fairies by Eleanor Peace Bloom. It has many fairies that must be fussy cut to use efficiently. As I used graph paper and colored pencils I began to covet this program. I guess I don't care if they are traditional or contemporary. I have made both. The Fairies one turns out to be a version of the Ohio Star. . .YIKES.
    I'd LOVE EQ7. so I am crossing my fingers. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

    I HAD an EQ version (4 or 5 I think) and when I got my new computer it wouldn't work with Vista...I decided that seeing as I had hardly used it I wouldn't bother getting a new one, however, I now regret that decision...and I am going to have to just get over the price and go for it!!...unless of course I'm lucky enough to win it!! LOL

  145. I have EQ version 4, would love to check this one out!

    ReplyDelete
  146. I have never owned or used any version of EQ and would love to try it!

    ReplyDelete
  147. I haven't used EQ before but I've decided its time I had a go. I'd design traditional and modern quilts! I seem to alternate between the two. I guess different moods and different fabrics inspire the different styles. That's the great thing about quilting! So many quilts to make and so little time. That's where EQ7 would come in handy!! Cheers

  148. I don't have EQ but have always wanted to try it. I have heard great things about it. I just have to cross my fingers and hope I win :-)

  149. I have EQ5 and then upgraded to EQ6 and would love to win #7. I love to play around with traditional blocks and see what I can change. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  150. congrats on your win..

    i dont have any previous EQ programs..

    but i design blocks, quilts, and house floor plans using quad pads/books..

    i also draw out blocks that i see to break them down into sections that i can easily use myself..

    would love to have EQ7 to use and for others to come and use also..

  151. congrats on your win ... way to go ... so happy for you ... hopefully i am as lucky as you ... i have wanted EQ for sooooooo long ... though i consider myself new quilter ... but as i do lot of charity quilts it would give me new ideas and easier design solutions ... at least thats what i am hoping for ... :)

  152. I had a great time designing a Storm at Sea quilt on EQ5 – it was great to have the fabric and piece lists. Would love to be able to move up to EQ7!

    ReplyDelete
  153. I don't have a copy of Any of the EQ programms but I think I am at the stage of my quilting where I could use one. I like to try and change patterns around to make them my own but seem to need some help with the math and especially colours so I definately could do with a copy of EQ7.

  154. I have EQ4. Would love an updated version! Traditional quilts are my favorite. Thanks for a chance at this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  155. I started with EQ5, upgraded to EQ6, and look forward to EQ7. I design some traditional quilts, some contemporary quilts, and also embroidery and rug hooking projects. I am looking forward to....designing MORE! Congrats on winning EQ7!

  156. Hi and Congratulations for winning EQ7. Here's hoping I win one too. I do have a previous version, EQ6, but moved just as it arrived in the mail. It remains unopened as I have just started unpacking the quilty stuff. If I am lucky enough to win EQ7, I know just who will receive my previous version.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Congratulations on winning EQ7, Ann! Thanks for giving me the chance to win one, too. I've never owned it before. I make both traditional and contemporary quilts so would love to use EQ7 to design them with.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Congratulation :-) Thanks for letting me getting a chance to win one too. I have made a link to this contest in my blogg. What I will do with the EQ7 is to design most contemporary quilts at first, but also some traditionals later. Whish to be the lucky one. Have a great week.

  159. I have EQ6, and would love to upgrade. I do mostly 'traditional with a twist'-kind of quilts..

  162. I have EQ 4 and 5. I am a traditional quilter. My husband likes to design quilts that are borderline for each category.

    ReplyDelete
  163. I've never used EQ but I'm ready to learn! I will design contemporary quilts with the program.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I looked into getting EQ6, but just couldn't justify the cost when I'm a newbie quilter. I love everything that is happening in the modern quilt movement, so if I win EQ7, I'd definitely use it to make contemporary designs.

    ReplyDelete
  165. Oh, I would LOVE to win! How fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  166. No, I do not own EQ. I am afraid that I would spend more time on EQ than I would cleaning the house, etc. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I guess. haha.
    I like designing traditional quilts with modern color/touches.

    ReplyDelete
  167. I don't have any version of EQ and I've never tried it but I would love to. I currently make mostly traditional quilts but I'm sure I would try it out for more modern items as well.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I don't have EQ yet - I have never seen it in person I have only read about it on blogs. I would love to design all sorts of quilts with it from traditional to modern.

    ReplyDelete
  169. I would love this software! My favorite quilts are somewhere between traditional and contemporary. I mostly just need help with knowing what to buy!

    ReplyDelete
  170. Congrats on your win! I would love to win a copy so that I could try the software. I have heard nothing but good about it. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  171. Congrats on your win Ann, I thought I had entered but dont see my name, I have never had quilting software and EQ7 sounds amazing and I would love to learn to design quilts, I enjoy both traditional and contemporary.

  172. Hi and what a lucky lady you are to win a copy of EQ7 ...I too would love to win a copy and so please enter me in your giveaway. I love both styles of quilts but favour contemporary most. I have EQ6 and love it.

  173. I don´t have any EQ right now but would love to give it a try as I am designing a quilt to teach right now. Sorry, but I can´t share it with you. It is done with pen and paper, but still a secret!

    ReplyDelete
  174. I dont have EQ7 at the moment being fairly new to quilting. How exciting to have the chance to win! I'm linking to your blog from my blog and keeping everything crossed. two chances to win! I tend to be more contemporary/modern with my quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  175. I have EQ6 now and would love to upgrade to EQ7. I design traditional quilts, but as I get more experienced, both in quilting and in designing in EQ, I hope I will develop a more modern individual style. I guess a lot of us start out playing with traditional blocks in EQ.

    I will send you one of my designs, too.

    I had the original EQ1 many moons ago...dos version, if you can imagine! I've been pining for EQ6, but EQ7 would be even better...! I'm a traditional quilting gal.

  182. I don't have EQ at all, I have a standalone copy of Dear Jane and have found that the manual for that is excellent. I would love to be able to design contemporary quilts using EQ7.

  184. I have never purchased EQ5 or 6, but I have been eyeing EQ7! How awesome it would be to win it! Thanks for including me!!

    ReplyDelete
  185. I've never had EQ or used it - but am seriously on pins and needles hoping that maybe I'll get lucky and win one that is being given away!!! (congrats to you by the way, you lucky gurl)

    I would use it to design more traditional quilts.. and think it would be a great way to store designs that I see in magazines (recreating them) for my ever growing one day list ;)

    Thanks for the chance to win! Hope I'm not too late!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
