We’re celebrating National Quilt Month with a design challenge that will inspire you to take vibrant geometrics and funky florals to a size perfect for featuring in quilted wall art and throws.


Overview

We know that large-scale designs work great for wallpaper and curtains, but what about for projects on a smaller scale? Imagine ditsy prints (small and non-directional) and whimsical, vintage-inspired elements in a scale perfect for piecing together into a quilt top. Be sure to shrink your big ideas into modern prints at a small-scale—designs will be previewing on an 8” swatch, the ideal size for using in a hand-stitched log cabin or flying geese quilt block.

Prizes

  • 1st place winner will receive a $200 Spoonflower credit.
  • 2nd place winner will receive a $100 Spoonflower credit.
  • 3rd place winner will receive a $50 Spoonflower credit.
  • Remaining top 10 designs will receive a $20 Spoonflower credit. The top 50 popularly-voted designs from each theme will be automatically made available for sale in the Spoonflower Marketplace (provided they are a verified seller) where they will receive 10% commission on every sale -- no $5 swatch required.
