  • They're oriented sideways to be able to fit onto a quarter yard of fabric, which (in the case of quilting-weight cotton) is 21 inches wide and 18 inches high.

  • These calendars are all really great. I’m wondering if the images are oriented sideways for a reason? Of course, my brain can figure it out, but I’d love to just look at them without them being sideways.


  • Often people do wait until the last minute to upload their entries. In this case, the task is so difficult that I suspect we'll end up with just a few submitted designs.

  • The entries were wonderful. I’m curious if people are waiting to upload their childrens’ clothing patterns until the deadline is closer…? Haven’t seen ANY in the new designs! (Wonder if I should wait upload mine – should I worry about stolen designs???)


  • Hi, Sharon. You can actually get this calendar printed on any of our fabrics — just choose a different fabric using the radio buttons on the right side of the preview page.
    If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact us via email or phone. The details appear on our contact page:  http://www.spoonflower.com/feedback/new

  • I love this design and would have liked to purchase a few however … I was put off by the fact that 1 – it is printed on quilting cotton rather than an more appropriate upholstery weight or linen fabric and 2 – there is no intuitive way to contact anyone at spoonflower. Still a great design and a great idea.
