Spoonflower Stash

In preparation for moving I've been going through all my craft supplies and misc stuff to see what I could pack up early or possibly donate, the less I pack the less we have to move! But, when I got to my fabrics I got sidetracked by all the beauties in my Spoonflower stash.

There's such an abundance of unique and glorious prints available on Spoonflower that when I see something I like I just buy it. Sometimes, without realizing it I've purchased prints that coordinate so wonderfully together that I wish I could take credit for doing it on purpose! Here are four such fabrics destined to be together.

See individual pics below for links to each fabric

These are all printed on the linen-cotton canvas,
wouldn't they make a wonderful set of tea towels?
Or maybe a fabulous carry-all tote or set of pillows,
I'd love to hear your ideas!

"Floating Across the Tops of Cities (New York B&W)" by Leighr

Another pic of them all together... yum!

Spoonflower Weekly Contest - Robot Cheater Quilts

I finally managed to get a design finished and entered into Spoonflower's weekly fabric design contest, yay! It's been at least 2, maybe even 3 months since I've entered one and I really miss it. It's really an inspiration to see what all the other designers come up with and a motivation to keep creating!

Well, the theme this week is pretty darn cool, "Robot Cheater Quilts", and as always, there are some amazing entries... I voted for about 15! Anyhow, here's mine:

The last time I entered a Cheater Quilt contest I hadn't started quilting yet, so my design was really complicated with lots of odd-shaped pieces, more of an art quilt. And though I still love that design, this time I decided to keep it simple, something you actually could piece if you wanted to. I knew I wanted to use HSTs (love 'em) and focus on one large friendly robot, so that's what I did.

My first cheater quilt design, "Queensboro Under Repairs".

Also make sure to check out last week's winners from the Toile contest. Just remember, every Thursday around noon they announce the top ten from the previous contest and open voting for the new one. I love Thursdays!
