It had to happen sooner or later, right? But with 193 entries in our Imaginary Animals Fabric Of the Week competition it still seems surprising that we have two designs in an exact tie for first place. Fine Feathered Friends by kayajoy and Fantanimals by melisza, two terrific fabrics by designers who have each won one previous contest, received exactly the same number of votes. Congratulations to the designers --Tamara Serrao of Montreal and Melissa Wang of Singapore -- both of whom now have $100 in Spoondollars to spend on lovely fabric. Well done!

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.
Abracadabra! Is it an illusion, or is it magic? Designers should enter designs that depict scenes from a magic show. Previews will be shown at the fat quarter fabric size (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, January 14th, 2014.
