I bought all my material for 7 quilts back in 2000 when I had monies to spend.  I just finished this one for my middle son Roy (37 and single).  I will post the name of the book I got the pattern from later, as I do not have it handy at the moment.  Definitely need to be an intermediate quilter for this one.  All pieced and I machine quilted it by stitching in the ditch and in the open spaces did my own mini real flying geese and pinned them to the quilt to quilt them and tear away the paper when done, as they were really small and not able to use the laser do pantograph style.  I love to quilt and I do machine quilting and hand quilting for others as part of my home-based business.

Wow! That's Awesome! I love how your geese shimmer like a flight of the real ones do when they fly over head.

I'll bet you could sew flying geese in your sleep now!  LOL

Very pretty quilt!  Would love the name of the pattern & designer.

Since I live in Alaska I especially love this quilt. I can only master the appreciation of such quilts as yours. Thank you for being so creative.

Marcia, I really love this quilt.  You did an outstanding job not only with the piecing and quilting, but the color choices are really what makes it so realistic and it just shimmers.  I cannot stop looking at it.  As several others, I would love to know the source and designer of this pattern.  But...it is YOUR color choices that really make it a show stopper!!!  Great job!
