    I found this pattern in a McCalls magazine. I thought it would be perfect for my son, he has been working at Bethesda Hospital for the last year. It took me about 6 months to piece together and today I finally layered it and will start to hand quilt it. Now I have to find another pattern for his brother who just finished bootcamp.
    Thanks for looking.

    The pattern is called From Sea to Shining Sea. It was in the Winter 2009/2010 issue.

    Wow what a spectacular quilt top. I would think that took awhile to piece. It is just gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing it.
