Winner 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.

Congratulations Barbara, and to all quilters that entered, thank you for your design inspiration. Happy
