SammyK does it again! Our all-time Spoonflower champ comes out on top in yet another contest by virtue of her astonishing, untiringly creative (and funny) approach to the Fabric of the Week themes. With "Reallllly Old Cameos" she marries the concept of cameo-inspired designs to an unexpected partner, dinosaurs, to win the most votes in a field of terrific fabrics. As those of you who follow our blog may already know, Samarra's new fabric collection for Timeless Treasures also had its debut at Quilt Market this week in Houston. SammyK is on a roll!

This week, designers should use hand-lettering to write a New Year's resolution. Additional design elements are welcome, but the design must have text that has a hand-lettered appearance, and describes a resolution. Previews will be shown at the fat quarter fabric size (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, December 31st, 2013 (yes, that's New Year's Eve!).
It may be the middle of winter, but we're already quilting for spring! This week, we're asking contestants to create a cheater quilt block with a spring floral theme. 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. All designs submitted must use a restricted palette (visible here, and white) and previews will be shown at (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is January 7th, 2014.
Instructions and rules for our weekly fabric design contests appear on our upcoming contests page .
