And we have the first four contenders in our Elite 8! Following some very close races (and our largest voter turn-out so far this year!), LouLouThi, Heirloom, Ruby, and Terrain live on to compete another day. It wasn’t easy, though. We have to say goodbye to four more of our favorite designer lines of the past year. We salute you, Fly a Kite, Outfoxed (my own personal bracket’s winner – gah!), California Girl, and Shades of Grey. No doubt we’ll see these designers back next year.

Edited to add: Scoring: In my haste to publish the results, I forgot to talk about scoring! Since we’ve advanced to the next round of competition, the stakes have been raised. This time, you get 4 points for every fabric line that you originally predicted would advance to the Elite 8. So, this go ’round, you get 4 points each if you predicted that LouLouThi, Heirloom, Ruby, or Terrain would advance to the round of 8. Add this to your total score from rounds 1 & 2, and let us know how you did in the comments below!
Without further ado, let’s let our remaining fabric lines take the court:
