Judy Martin Star Power Software and Giveaway

One can never spot too many stars in the sky, just as one can never have too many quilts with stars on them.  Thus, I hope you can understand why I was excited when I learned that the Electric Quilt Company introduced a new add-on for EQ7, at Fall Quilt Market 2012, called Star Power.


Star Power provides EQ7 users an additional 110 star blocks and 17 EQ Projects, that contain 61 quilt designs!



These blocks, like all blocks designed in EQ7, can be combined to design your own quilts, and other projects, resulting in an endless number of possible designs using stars!



Requires EQ7 software. 110 blocks and 61 quilts to use in your EQ7! Plus, piecing diagrams for every block and quilt!
Block Piecing Diagrams organized by:
Alternate Blocks
Evening Stars
Exquisite Stars

Other Stars

Rising Stars
Shimmering Stars
Simple Stars
Turkey Tracks

Wandering Stars

Quilt Piecing Diagrams



Are you seeing the possibilities with Judy Martin's Star Power designs?  

I'm wanting to use Judy's Star designs to create a Modern Quilt Design that incorporates a few star blocks, for a Patriotic theme quilt.  I still need to play with my design, but I thought you may want to see a sneak peek.  EQ7 and the new Judy Martin Star Power software is really fun to use and the design possibilities are endless.

I think a Modern Quilt design with Judy's stars would be a fun quilt to make and one that would show off beautiful free-motion quilting. What do you think?   Of course, I can also think how fun it would be to use this add-on to create clip art, blog headers, Facebook profile images, greeting cards and more.  What would you like to create with it?

Did I mention a giveaway?


The Electric Quilt Company is sponsoring a giveaway for  Public followers of SewCalGal.  Simply leave a message on this post to let me know you are interested in winning a copy of the new Judy Martin Star Power Software.  Winners should currently have EQ7 or plan on purchasing EQ software as the Judy Martin Star Power software package is an add-on software package for EQ7.


Want an extra entry?

For those on Facebook, "like" Electric Quilt's page and leave a comment on their page letting them know SewCalGal sent you.  Come back here and leave a 2nd comment, to claim this extra entry.

SewCalGal will randomly select a winner and announce next Friday.




I'm also late in announcing the winner of a previous  Fun Friday Giveaway sponsored by Craftsy.
Craftsy donated a Mystery Gift Package from Craftsy, with an estimated $100+ value and will feature a combination of fat quarters, charm packs, and design rolls.  But, as they are shipping this prize directly to the winner, SewCalGal also needs to honor their requirement that the winner of this giveaway be based in the US or Canada. 




The Random Number generator was used to select a winner, as always.  It is an easy to use tool that allow the number of entries to be used to identify a winner.



Congratulations to lucky #85 - Allison


An email will be sent today to Allison to let her know. I need to get her mailing info to confirm she wants to claim this prize.  If, I don't hear back from Allison within 3 days I will randomly select another winner.
