Spoonflower Fabrics has regular design contests...and if you haven't visited them, you should. Now that retail fabric prices have gone up, Spoonflower's prices for one-of-a-kind fabrics are almost reasonable. (And terrific during a sale!)
I love their stuff for adding zip to scrap and memory quilts. (And they cut beautifully for small details and accents.) Along comes the latest contest:
MURDER MYSTERY TOILE!
That's right -- every one of the top ten prints has a secret within the fabric design. Here's the winner, "Who Poisoned the Roses?" by chicca_besso. (Order some here.)
Plus oddball stuff like "Killed: Two Birds With One Stone." (I'll let you look up that one.)
Go here to see the entries -- very, very cool.
Your bee neighbor probably won't have these in her next quilt!
