Quilting-booksThis week's contest is for cheater quilts that mimic the traditional style of Hawaiian quilts, which generally consist of a design in a single color appliqued on top of a background with some sort of border. For examples, of course, you can always check Google images. I had never heard of Hawaiian quilts until Spoonflower team member Holiday stopped by my desk a few weeks ago to show me a little book she'd been reading called "Hawaiian Quilting Made Easy." It really seemed like a perfect fit for a cheater quilt contest. A "cheater quilt," as you probably know, is one in which the design is printed onto the fabric rather than pieced. The entries this week look amazing. I can't wait to see some of the contest fabrics from this week quilted and finished. Please, please, please post photos in the Flickr group!
