We're thrilled to announce that another Spoonflower artist has joined the ranks of professional textile designers. The theme of the Be My Hero contest was heroes, and the goal was to find a novelty print for boys that Timeless Treasures Fabrics will license, then mass-produce and distribute through fabric shops everywhere. The winner, as selected from the top ten vote-winners by judges (including special judge SammyK) is Jennifer Wambach of JennArtDesigns. Congratulations to Jennifer and to the rest of the top ten, who are all fabric heroes!
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.
Abracadabra! Is it an illusion, or is it magic? Designers should enter designs that depict scenes from a magic show. Previews will be shown at the fat quarter fabric size (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, January 14th, 2014.
