Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Black & WhiteContest

Black & white Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: May 11, 2011

You'll remember her name, no doubt, from Project Selvage winner announcement: Patty Sloniger is on a roll. Patty's lovely "White Anemones" fabric emerges as the top pick from a field of more than 400 entries in our black & white-themed Fabric Of the Week contest. Of course, she's probably too busy working on her new collections for Michael Miller Fabrics to pay much attention. I just hope she's not too busy to keep entering our fabric design contests!
