A Wedding Afghan

I've been working for awhile on an afghan for a family member. Because it is made in panels, I was able to bring some of the panels to the group and work on them. If I had to work on it all in one piece, it would quickly have become too heavy to be portable.
The pattern was called a Celtic Afghan and was published in Crochet Fantasy, a victim of hurricane Katrina. It called for Paton's Decor but I used TLC Essentials in Aran for all the panels, instead of contrasting neutral shades. I put all the panels together with a slip stitch; then made the border a little wider by adding a row of dc. The afghan is over 60" long and 45" wide. It turned out to be a really nice wedding gift.

Is it possible to acquire this pattern? I would like to make this afghan for a young couple that is getting married in August. It is so beautiful!!!
