The winner of our autumn-themed Fabric Of the Week contest -- in which designers were allowed to use no more than three colors and white -- is none other than Dennis Bennett, or dennisthebadger, a doctor from Frankfurt, Germany, who happens to dabble in fabric design. Dennis has won two previous contests, including the contest sponsored by the folks at NAP, the maker of Boba baby carriers. What's more, this makes the second week in row that a male designer has won our Fabric Of the Week contest. That's certainly never happened before, but perhaps it's a trend. Be sure to check out the top ten designs from the contest this week and if anyone decides to make an autumn-themed quilt from the winners, please, please, please post a photo in the Flickr group!

This week we will be voting on collections from the Fabric8 finalists.
We love gardening, and there's nothing that delights us more than our little herb plants! We love picking a few fresh mint leaves or rosemary sprigs with our own hands and adding them straight to a pitcher of iced tea or a bowl of pasta. This week, create a fabric design that celebrates the traditional herb garden. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014.
Match point! Create a fabric design that celebrates the sport of tennis. Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, July 29th, 2014.
Instructions and rules for our weekly fabric design contests appear on our upcoming contests page .
