This week designers created prints inspired by the citrus fruit family. On a hot day, there's nothing like a cool glass of lemonade, and no better pick-me-up than the bright oranges, greens and yellows of the citrus fruit family — as you can see from our refreshing top ten entries! Congratulations to this week's winner, Robin Pickens from California, and the rest of the top 10.
