Working with RJR

I received a call out of the blue from RJR Fabrics in February. What a wonderful call to receive from a terrific gal in their marketing department. She asked me to design a quilt pattern for them using a new line of fabrics they have coming out soon. I believe they're introducing the line at the Spring Market in Portland, but it won't be available until August/September.

We ended up doing it in two different color ways from the same line. The fabrics are very 1970's and I had a ball coming up with designs for it. There was one in particular that I'd like to do; kind of a funky play on the patchwork craze of the 70's. I think it would be a great quilt to take to a concert in the park on a summer evening. Be sure to bring your pretty crystal candlesticks, a great bottle of wine, and a nice warm loaf of crusty french bread with some delicious cheese to savor and enjoy.
