Spoonflower Fabric of the Week 2013 Staff ContestContest

2013 staff contest Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: March 20, 2013

This year Spoonflower crew members asked to try their hands at something that, in many cases, they had never tried to do in their lives: creating a quilt. The fifteen teams produced a number of witty, creative and in some cases even beautiful efforts. They included an LED-lit quilt, a 3-D quilt that showcased fabric manipulation techniques, a scented quilt with a flower design, and a tribute to Spoonflower's hometown of Durham. The winner turned out to be a tribute to Spoonflower itself, and to the many talented designers who make up our community. With all the votes counted, the Staff Challenge winner is the Spoonlandia quilt by the team of John, Abbey and Laurie. Way to go, teams!
