2018 Quilt Block Design Contest


The AccuQuilt 2018 Quilt Block Design Contest starts on July 15, and you have until July 31 at 11:59 p.m. CST to submit your winning design to the contest page! Get your family, friends, and fellow quilters in on the fun and ask them to vote for you Aug. 1 – Aug. 15. There are more than $15,000 in total prizes waiting for you! The winning block design will be displayed outside AccuQuilt Headquarters in Omaha, Neb.

AccuQuilt is proud to welcome quilting guru Eleanor Burns as a special guest judge. She will assist the AccuQuilt management team in selecting the winning designs after the field is narrowed down to the top 10 designs. The final winners will be notified on or before Aug. 31.


The prize packages include AccuQuilt shopping sprees, an HQ Stitch 710 from Handi Quilter, a Quilt in a Day retreat pass, unlimited annual Craftsy class passes, an abundance of fabric and much more! Additionally, the grand prize winner’s quilt block will be displayed on a 17-foot sign outside of AccuQuilt’s Headquarters for an entire year, so not only does the AccuQuilt staff get to see the winning design every day, but visitors who tour our facility will see it, too. Lastly, the winner will receive an expenses-paid trip for two to Omaha to see the unveiling of their block during our 10th Anniversary Celebration.

See the grand prize winner from last year, Reed Johnson, with his winning design, “Purple Rose” below.


We hope you join in on the fun and submit your designs! Good luck to all of you!
