As a cluster of great bicycle fabrics came into the final stage of this week's competition, one designer broke away and finished the week wearing the yellow jersey (or interlock knit, in our case). She is Ine Beerten (Zesti), a Belgian illustrator whose work we've had reason to admire previously in the <a href="http://blog.spoonflower.com/2011/04/project-selvage-finalist-profile-ine-beerten.html"> Project Selvage Finals</a> from last year, as well in our <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/111"> kite</a> and <a href="http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/45"> carousel</a> contests. Congratulations, Ine! Read more about <a href="http://blog.spoonflower.com/2012/03/one-bicycle-fabric-breaks-away-from-the-peloton.html">One Bicycle Fabric Breaks Away From the Peloton</a>.

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