Let me tell you a little bit about this before we go to the FREE PATTERN (no, this is not it - whew!! I know you say). No, wait a minute. I'll be right back . . .
I'm back! I just discovered I HAD written the pattern with art and template for the quilt above. It's still on my computer. I'll share that later this week (that's if you want a psychedelic quilt!) Windham never published it, but I'm sure you can find some calm fabrics to create this. It's all raw edge applique. More later.
Here's the free pattern project. I call it the 5-6-7 Tote Bag (because of the width of strips used). It's a free download at the Windham Fabrics web site (link above).

I actually have a 3rd project I just pulled out that uses 10.5" squares. I had cut up every remaining piece of this collection into 10.5" squares and used an awesome template set created by my friend and fellow teacher, Nelly Vileikis. I will blog about that soon, too. I took pictures this afternoon (Sunday) and I'm sewing a few more blocks.
Hope you enjoyed seeing what is actually possible with wild and crazy fabrics. I love sewing with bold color and design. It makes me happy.
Come back on Wednesday (January 21) for my Windham Wednesday post using the Broken Stripes Collection (remember this?) I have a fun tutorial using these with a very traditional block. See you then!
