With 342 entrants in our palette-limited contest for bird-themed fabrics, winning is no small accomplishment. So special congratulations go out to first time contest winner Jacob Billings, a designer in Independence, Missouri. He and his wife also happen to be, he tells me, awaiting the arrival of their first child any time, so this is just one more (comparatively small) bit of good news. Woo-hoo! Be sure to take a few minutes to admire the top ten from this week's competition. They are fabulous!
