Default Question about Connecting Threads free patterns

I missed calling Connecting Threads in time to buy the Batik Paradise Cabin Windows Kit. It included a free pattern. Today I called the company to see if I could access the free pattern and was told to just keep watching the website. I looked online for a Cabin Windows pattern, and the ebooks wants me to download a credit card # for a free pattern! I don't know if the pattern is the same or not. Any advice? I could sit down with graph paper (ugh!) and figure it out, but wondered if anyone had a better, quicker idea. And what's with the credit card number? Is that how it's done to download free ebooks? Free? Or...set me straight, friends. Just no bashing my ignorance, okay? Thanks! P.S. I don't mind paying for a pattern, but would like it to be very similar to the CT pattern.

Is there a way to contact the co by email or phone to ask about it? I've never heard of having to download a credit card # for something that's free. I don't blame you for being wary.

Google takes me to a site called "goBookee" or something similar (may have the caps wrong) and wants me to register through Facebook. I don't do Facebook and am not really interested in starting. Just want the Cabin Windows pattern. No other companies/sites seem to have this pattern. I would like something similar/close, but have no ideas on other comparable patterns. Guess I'll just keep looking at CT and hope they post it.

I buy a visa gift card in a certain amount to buy things on line especially if I am apprehensive about using the site.

I tried to find the pattern you're talking about and had no luck. When I google it, I see a preview, but the website says it's unavailable. Can you post a link?

Is this the picture from google of the quilt you are talking about? I know the link to it on connecting threads doesn't work though. https://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&s...ml%3B283%3B248

Thanks, Thimblebug, for the link. I dont' know how to do those & yesterday we were having our Internet changed over to higher speed, so wasn't able to be on QB much. Yes, the pattern I'd like is the one in the upper left hand corner with the black background and brights. Thanks, everyone, for helping with this. I'll wait until Monday and see if I can get a different rep at CThreads. I'm not attracted to many patterns, but this one I like! :-) Again, thanks for all the help. Love this board!
