Squidtastic fabric! Check out the winner of our squid-themed fabric design contest

MAR 24, 2011 updated May 30, 2016

Squid
Melissa Wang, an illustrator and graphic designer who lives in Singapore, wins her first Spoonflower Fabric Of the Week contest with the fabulous Wondersquids, pictured above printed on our quilting weight cotton. Without spilling too much ink over the terrific designs in this contest, let me just say that I hope some of the folks who choose fabrics for mens' boxer shorts are paying attention. You owe it to yourself to take a few minutes to admire the top ten.
