Honoring the greatest generation in fabric: Announcing the winner of our military contest

NOV 10, 2011 updated May 30, 2016

Military-winner
We asked contest participants this week to come up with military-themed fabrics in honor of Veterans Day. The winner, Celia Malm of Iowa, managed to put together a fabric design that honors the greatest generation in a way that is both fitting and quite personal. Her The Greatest Generation fabric was created using old postcards and photos from her own family members who served during WWII. Be sure to check Celia's terrific design as well as the rest of the top ten.
