Do you have what it takes to be a fabric designer?

Michael Miller Fabrics has partnered with to create Project Selvage, a competition to find the company's next licensed designer. If I could draw I would enter alas I can't so I'll leave it up to those who have that talent. Some of you will already know about Spoonflower - it is a site that you submit your designs and they will print it onto fabric for you, I have always been tempted to try it out but haven't gotten around to do it. According to the submission guidelines - The design theme for the initial round of submissions is baby fabric for boys. Michael Miller Fabrics and Spoonflower will pick the top 75 Semi-Finalists. The Semi-Finalists will be posted at for fans to vote.  Designs that get the top 10 votes will move to final round and design a collection of 6 designs. The top 10 collections will be posted on for the public to vote at  The collection that gets the most votes will win!! And their collections (It will be both a boy and girl collection) will be debuted at International Quilt Market - Fall 2011. How exciting. Entres must be in by the 24th March.

  1. Hi Sue, I came in today (Sunday April 3) bought a few little things, asked about the Amy Butler fabric (but knew I'd go berserk if I started selecting) and asked you about your website. Thanks for your help and the really quick chat, I hope it all goes well for you.

    I am a blogger to, although not a patchwork enthusiast, but LOVE the fabrics. Your store IS FANTASTIC!

    The bag I had with me, is one of my own fabric designs and style, printed using Spoonflower.

    All the best...T from designed to a T
