Upcoming fabric design contest themes: gardens, water colors, & tessellations
-- For details on entering and information on rules, prizes, etc. see our Upcoming Contests page --
Tessellations. Design fabric using the mathematical principle of tessellation, or tiling, where the design consists of a shape repeated over and over again covering the fabric without any gaps or overlaps. This can be done very crudely, of course, with squares, but for more sophisticated examples see the work of M. C. Escher and the tile mosaics of the Alhambra palace in Spain. You can find tutorials on creating this sort of design, as well as examples, on Tessellations.org. Deadline is Tuesday, April 13, at noon EST.
Water Colors. Submit only fabric designs created using watercolor paints, then digitized via scan or photograph. Please use minimal digital manipulation in preparing your file for Spoonflower: the goal of this contest is to showcase work done by hand. Deadline is Tuesday, April 6, at noon EST.
