This is a commercial design and was purchased by a member of Mrs. Benberry's family as a gift to her. Blocks or panels like this were printed in the 1980s with coordinating fabric from the bolt to be used to complete a quilt using the blocks.

Cuesta Benberry wrote: "Scenic fabric picture, hand quilted, and given to me by Doris Gilbert. A rustic scene with a Goose Girl, geese, a house, fence, wooded area all in a circular framed center medallion."
