For the second time in the history of our Fabric Of the Week contest we have a tie for first place between two terrific fabrics: "Hawaiian Quilt Circle of Akahai Quilt" by JennArtDesigns and "Hawaiian Quilt Circle of Flora" by first-time competitor Jessica Greenwalt. Both designers have been awarded $100 in Spoondollar credit and, despite the fact that our this page shows ten designs rather than eleven, we've made the next nine fabrics in the voting results available for sale. (This contest page is also limited in that it can only show one design as winner, which is a shame.) Read more about Hawaiian Cheater Quilts Contest Tie.
DId you know that the United States alone uses approximately 100 billion new plastic bags every single year? To honor Earth Day 2014, we're asking you to create a cut & sew pattern for a reusable shopping bag. The design should be set up to be centered. Preview will be sized at a single yard (42" x 36") of Kona Cotton, although your actual design may fill a yard of one of our wider fabrics. Deadline for entry is April 15th, 2014.
At Spoonflower, we like to keep our childlike creativity and curiosity alive. That's why we're oh so excited about this week's contest: floral coloring book wallpaper. Create a black and white design that is ready for crayons, pencils, and markers to go wild. Designs are intended for wallpaper, but previews will be sized as a quarter yard of fabric (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is April 22nd, 2014.
No matter where you live in the world, nothing spells comfort like a home cooked meal from your mom or grandmother. Celebrate the important culinary women in your life this Mother's Day by designing a lovely recipe just like mom used to make. Recipes should fit a fat quarter-yard of our Linen-Cotton Canvas fabric. Entries will be previewed at the scale of a fat quarter (27" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, April 29th, 2014.
Terrariums are the perfect way to bring the outdoors in, and inject a little plant life into your home. No wonder people are crazy about them. This week, create a design that celebrates terrariums, previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, May 6th, 2014.
It's time to dust off the crayons, we're going 'old school' (kindergarten, that is!) for this week's contest. Create a monster design by hand, using only crayons (the kind you'd doodle with as a kid). Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, May 13th, 2014.
