The theme of our contest this week was Flights Of Fancy, which produced both the expected -- lots of bird fabrics, for example -- but also the unexpected: the winner, Roz Robinson, based her design on the wistful flight of dandelion seeds. Designers also had to restrict their use of color to a particular palette. Roz's winning fabric will appear in a photo on the cover of an upcoming issue of Mollie Makes. Congratulations to all who participated!
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.
