2017 Quilt Block Design Contest


The AccuQuilt 2017 Quilt Block Design Contest starts on Aug. 1, and you have until Aug. 21 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. 23 – Sept. 5. There are $15,000 in total prizes waiting for you! The winning block design will be displayed on the AccuQuilt world headquarters building 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 – one will be selected by popular vote and AccuQuilt will select the remaining five. The winners will be notified on or before Sept. 15.


The prize packages include AccuQuilt shopping sprees, Craftsy class passes, Mountain Mist batting, 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 get two round trip tickets to Omaha and a 2-night hotel package.

See the grand prize winner from last year, Terri Vanden Bosch, with her winning design, “Point of View” below.


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