In our coordinates contest, designers were asked to create four fabric designs in a collection to fit on a single yard. Wow. The entries in this contest have almost certainly provided some of the loveliest fabrics we've seen emerge from our (many) contests. The winner is the Bloem Coordinates set by Heather Dutton of Hang Tight Studio. While Heather is one of our favorite designers, this is actually her first contest win since our spoons and flowers contest back in the fall of 2009. A lot has changed since then!

From scarabs to ladybugs, this week's contest is all about celebrating beetles. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, August 19th, 2014.
This week we're celebrating our communities by sharing scenes from our neighborhoods: the architecture, the people, or the flora and fauna. Designs should be black and white only and done in a hand-drawn style (although digital manipulation is fair game). Take a walk with your sketchbook, draw some doodles, and share! Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, August 26th, 2014.
Show your local library some love with this week's theme. We're celebrating books, libraries, and librarians. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014.
