The winner of our cat fabric contest is Bora, otherwise known as Dutch artist Deborah van de Leijgraaf. This is Bora's fourth Fabric Of the Week win, which officially puts her in the company of a small handful of Spoonflower fabric design all-stars. Like her all-star predecessors, Cean Irminger and SammyK, Bora has requested that we donate $100 to a charity -- Heifer.org -- in lieu of awarding her the usual prize of free fabric. That's a lovely way to end a terrific 2010, no? There's still time to buy an end-of-year flock of geese for yourself! Fun trivia from Bora's blog: when not illustrating, Bora is a cat-loving, motorcycle-riding, accordian-playing new mom. But how many of those things can she do simultaneously? Thank you, Bora!
