I did a count the other day to see how many Spoonflower contests I have participated in by now. And I was astounded at the number: 30 contests in the 9 months that I’ve been on Spoonflower. That’s between 3 and 4 contests per month; I skipped 6 contests, and during the annual “staff challenge” no other contest took place. For the record, it took me 7 months (or 25 entries) to achieve a number one.
Here is my 30th contest entry: Recent Arrivals for the current theme “backpacks”. This is my first true half-drop repeat, which I wanted to do in order to make the conveyor belt (hence overall repeat) look more interesting. I found it a bit trickier to make a half-drop repeat with a path crossing through than with a scattered design. But I love the resulting yard view, which you can see here if you select “Yards” under fabric options.
