One of our new friends, Mathew Boudreaux (you may know him as Mister Domestic!) has a gorgeous fabric collection with Art Gallery Fabrics called Aura! We just had to offer it to EQ users as a free download AND host another design challenge! Thanks to our long-time friends at Art Gallery Fabrics for providing and shipping the prize.  :-D
