In our most recent contest we challenged designers to come up with wallpaper designs with a retro "mod" feel. Don't be surprised if you spot some of these designs showing up as the backdrops for TV and movie sets over the next year or so. Most surprising, however, is that the top wallpaper in this week's competition was created by Alex Morgan, the same designer who won last week's contest to create fabrics based on Greek mythology. It's her sixth contest win overall. Congratulations to Alex and the rest of the top 10!
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.
