FREE pattern – Rebecca

 It has been a very long time since my last blog posting.  Quilts, quilts, quilts...and lots of them have flown under my sewing machine needle.   
Rebecca's label
Before the 2012 Fall Quilt Market in Houston, Texas I was asked by Windham Fabrics to design a quilt using their new fabric line "Rebecca".  Of course I was thrilled to be asked and got right to work.  Time is always short and designing/sewing process has to be quick.  I finished the quilt, naming it Rebecca - I know, the name isn't very original.  I wrapped it up and sent it off to Windham for photography.  The quilt appeared both in their catalog and Quilt Market booth.  Once Market was over I thought that was the end of the quilt and its appearance in the quilt world.  But, oh not so fast...last week Windham contacted me wanting a pattern for the Rebecca quilt, and by-the-way could it be done in less than a week.  Never say no is my motto.  With pencil and computer working at mach speed I made the deadline.  The pattern is now FREE to download from the Windham's website.  Anyone with a computer can access the pattern!  Check it out and the other wonderful free patterns Windham Fabrics offers.
