Have you seen the fantastic entries submitted to the Stag and Thistle challenge?! (See them in the original post here.) Thanks to everyone for participating!
The winner of the challenge was chosen by Brett Lewis, the fabric designer himself!
“I am amazed with April’s EQ8 Stag and Thistle Design challenge. Thank you to everyone for all the beautiful entries. I can’t wait for the the fabric to arrive in stores and see some of these designs come to life.
Choosing just one quilt design was a challenge in its self, but after reviewing all the marvellous entries one design stood out: Barbara Bittinger’s ‘Stag and Thistle Labyrinth.’ The movement and secondary design that emerges from Barbara’s design took me on a journey through her Labyrinth, discovering fussy cut stags, hidden birch groves and sewing notions. Congratulations Barbara, and to all quilters that entered, thank you for your design inspiration.
