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!

Your neighborhood

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.
