Congratulations to Cean Irminger! By winning her fourth Fabric Of the Week contest with The Black Forest, she is now officially tied with SammyK as all-time champ. Following in the talented footsteps of SammyK, who donated her fourth win prize to Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary in New Mexico, Cean has requested that in lieu of receiving $100 in free fabric we make a donation on her behalf to Heifer.org, a great organization that provides livestock, training and services to small farmers and communities around the world. We are very pleased to have been able to purchase a sheep for Cean. Thank you, Cean! Read more about A Sheep For Cean.

It may be the middle of winter, but we're already quilting for spring! This week, we're asking contestants to create a cheater quilt block with a spring floral theme. Cheater quilt blocks feature fabric designed and printed to look like patchwork or applique so that you can skip the piecework and go straight for quilting. All designs submitted must use a restricted palette (visible here, and white) and previews will be shown at (21" x 18"). Deadline for entry is January 7th, 2014.
