Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Urban SightingsContest

Urban sightings Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: March 28, 2012

The top ten fabrics from this contest are headed for an exhibit at the Textile Center in Minneapolis, where jurors will select their favorite for a grand prize. The people's choice in our voting was Canadian designer Cynthia Frenette's "Take the Detour Route," but all of the top ten offer terrific spins on the contest theme, which centered on the transformation of an urban neighborhood using selected photos as inspiration.
