Naomi Wilson (The Bella Modiste) has been a Spoonflower member since our invitation-only beta days, but she's been crafty a lot longer than that. The aqua version of her "Retro Travel" fabric becomes our most recent Fabric Of the Week, nosing out the also-terrific "Time Travel" by Surlybirdstudio. Congrats to Naomi and all the other designers who participated! Read more about Travel Fabric Winner.
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.
Instructions and rules for our weekly fabric design contests appear on our upcoming contests page .
