Spoonflower Fabric of the Week SquidContest

Squid Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: March 23, 2011

Melissa Wang, an illustrator and graphic designer who lives in Singapore, wins her first Spoonflower Fabric Of the Week contest with the fabulous Wondersquids, pictured above printed on our quilting weight cotton. Without spilling too much ink over the terrific designs in this contest, let me just say that I hope some of the folks who choose fabrics for mens' boxer shorts are paying attention. You owe it to yourself to take a few minutes to admire the top ten.

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

Math and art are too often depicted as opposite ends of a spectrum. The art of creating seamless repeats is especially well suited for the numerate among us. This week's challenge is to design a fabric celebrating mathematics. Entries will be previewed at the fat quarter size (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, December 30th. Voting will open on Wednesday, December 31st.
