In designing this quilt, I used the fabric from my latest fabric collection from Quilting Treasures, Wild Flower.
We have a lot of ducks and geese in our area and I never get tired of watching them. Its not uncommon, when driving, to stop and wait for a parade of feathered friends and family to finish their march across the road.
I hope you are having a wonderful and colorful spring. Its very welcome after the long, long winter!
