Canary Quilts Logo Fabric

I wanted to share this great piece of fabric I just purchased from spoonflower!  This is one of two logo’s my husband made for me to brand the items that I make. Spoonflower is a company that allows you to upload your own design and have it printed on a variety of fabrics.  I love this service because it lets people be independent fabric designers and show and sell their designs online, and it also lets you personalize any of your projects with a design of your own.

I wanted to bring to your attention a contest that is going on over at “The Printed Bolt” website. They put out a call to anyone who was interested in designing fabric to enter their Repeat: A Design Competition.  I found out about this competition after they had already chosen their top ten competitors, but I think it will be a lot of fun to see what the challenges are, and see how all these aspiring fabric designers interpret the challenge. I find this fun because I think about designing my own fabric and with a graphic designer in my house we are really interested to see what designs come out of this AND how the judges look at each design.  All the designers come from different walks of life, some are artists, some are graphic designers, and one is a regular person like me, so I am very interested in watching how this whole challenge and competition plays out.
