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!
