    That is so wonderful. I love it. Is that your own creation or did you have a pattern? So neat how you used the flying geese pattern for the loon, the bear paw for the bear and I'm not sure of the fish one. I am using that same green border fabric in a twister wreath.

    I love the ducks. I love the fish too. I wish I could see them a little closer. Beautiful job on this quilt.

    This is the pattern the blocks are from. I have it in my to do pile. Have started accumulating fabric for it.

    Thank you dungeonquilter for posting the link - isn't it a wonderful pattern! Thank you all for the kind comments. I would like one day to make the whole quilt but for the moment I am starting small. I am going to make some of those blocks up as placemats. I really enjoyed hand stippling the background. I liked that the traditional block matched the applique.

    Ditto Kitsykeel....beautiful and very clever to "match" the applique to the pieced block ! Your friend is sure to be so pleased.

    I realise I didn't give any background... my friend works for Fish & Wildlife, recently left Alaska where we met, so the pattern has particular reference to her time in Alaska. Salmon,bears and waterfowl represent Alaska as she will remember it!
