Connecting Threads Quilting Fabric Design Contest

If you are an aspiring fabric designer, I think you are going to be very excited when you read today’s post! One of my wonderful sponsors, Connecting Threads, is hosting a Quilting Fabric Design Contest. Entries are accepted beginning 7/22, so this is a great time to start brainstorming, sketching and designing!

I had such a great time following the last contest in 2010. You can find all the guidelines here on their website. I can’t wait to see the designs from all the artists and vote!

    I wish I had seen what the contest was like before! How exciting! I am wondering if a focal fabric is just one fabric or if people submit multiple! How exciting!

      Hi Tanyia!

      Great questions. A focal fabric is just one fabric that you want to set the tone for the rest of the fabrics in the group. That said, you are free to submit as many fabric designs as you would like! Just make sure you submit them before August 10th. Good luck!
