Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Constellations Contest

Constellations Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: October 02, 2013

We've been seeing a lot more of the stars now that the sun is setting earlier and daylight hours are shrinking into fall. We challenged designers to create fabric inspired by the constellations that move above our head each night. Now, capturing the beauty, scale, and mystery of the skies above is no small task, but our designers were up for the challenge. Congratulations to our winner and first timer, Anne Blankman of Los Angeles!
