Spoonflower Fabric of the Week Birds (palette-limited)Contest

Birds (palette-limited) Designs

Spoonflower Design Challenge: September 14, 2011

With 342 entrants in our palette-limited contest for bird-themed fabrics, winning is no small accomplishment. So special congratulations go out to first time contest winner Jacob Billings, a designer in Independence, Missouri. He and his wife also happen to be, he tells me, awaiting the arrival of their first child any time, so this is just one more (comparatively small) bit of good news. Woo-hoo! Be sure to take a few minutes to admire the top ten from this week's competition. They are fabulous!

Upcoming contests

Kittens in mittens

Winter toile (monochromatic)

Create a toile de Jouy fabric design using a single color (or a background color and a single foreground color) on the theme of winter. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, December 9, 2014.


Tchaikovsky's most famous ballet is overdue for its own fabric contest. Create a fabric inspired by The Nutcracker for this week's challenge, keeping in mind that we will NOT be sending out an email or switching over the contest on December 25th, so this one will be up for two weeks. 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!


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.

Instructions and rules for our weekly fabric design contests appear on our upcoming contests page .
