Tchaikovsky's most famous ballet is overdue for its own fabric contest.

Entries will be previewed at the fat quarter size (21" x 18"). The deadline for entry is Tuesday, December 16th, 2014. Voting will open on December 18th, and will close on December 30th. We'll announce the winner on December 31st, just in time for the New Year!

Voting will open on Wednesday, December 31st.
