Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Civil Rights ToileContest

Civil rights toile Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: January 26, 2011

Wouldn't you know that on the heels of Cean Irminger's 6th Fabric Of the Week win last week, SammyK would add her 7th? Samarra's latest victory arrives in what may be the hardest fabric design contest theme we've ever come up with: creating a historical toile de Jouy fabric depicting some aspect of the struggle for Civil Rights and freedom. After initially deciding not to enter this contest, Samarra changed her mind because, she says, she was inspired "by children, by education and learning, by those same children being our future and our hope." The description that appears on her fabric page is worth reading. Congratulations to Samarra and all of the other intrepid designers who toiled for these toiles!
