SammyK does it again! Our all-time Spoonflower champ comes out on top in yet another contest by virtue of her astonishing, untiringly creative (and funny) approach to the Fabric of the Week themes. With "Reallllly Old Cameos" she marries the concept of cameo-inspired designs to an unexpected partner, dinosaurs, to win the most votes in a field of terrific fabrics. As those of you who follow our blog may already know, Samarra's new fabric collection for Timeless Treasures also had its debut at Quilt Market this week in Houston. SammyK is on a roll!

Previews will be sized as quarter yards (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is Tuesday, August 26th, 2014.
