The voting for our hotly anticipated contest for 2011 tea-towel calendar designs starts on Thursday. Latecomers, you have until the end of the day Tuesday (Nov. 2) to enter a design, which must fit onto a fat quarter of quilting-weight fabric (21 inches by 18 inches).
Note that while our contest previews show the designs at 21" wide by 18" tall, you can design your calendar for either dimension. If the preview shows it sideways, voters will still know that the printed fabric is meant to hang vertically. This was a fun contest last time around and tea-towels (which need not be printed on quilting-weight cotton) make terrific gifts.
[Check out Danielle Hanson's winning calendar from last year.]
Upcoming contests announced so far include a 1-yard pattern contest for Christmas stockings as well as a candle fabric contest. Before either of those, we've also got a Celebrity Fabric Design Smackdown to look forward to!
