Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Sailing (palette-restricted)Contest

Sailing (palette-restricted) Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: May 01, 2013

This time around we asked for sailing fabrics, but required designers to use a restricted palette of colors in their designs. The result, I know you'll agree, is an amazing group of fabrics that will make a lovely <a href="">fat quarter bundle</a>. The winner this week was veteran Spoonflower artist (whose day job is physician) Dennis Bennett of Frankfurt, Germany. Congratulations, Dennis!
