Welcome to For the Love of Geese where I share my passion for Quilting.
My name is Denise, I live in a small Southern Illinois town with my husband of 28+ years, and my faithful friend and quilt judge Enzo.
This is Enzo, he spends his day working with me. He sits in the window and stands guard. He then spends his evening making sure I stay on track with my sewing.
I started sewing when I was 17 and made my first quilt. Since then I have been all over the place, quilted coats with applique, applique quilts, patchwork, then finally paper piecing. There has also been a few dog and halloween costumes.
As the site title implies, I LOVE flying geese. It was this love that led me to designing my own quilts. The only things I dislike about quilting is cutting fabric, Y seams and curved piecing. Most of my fpp patterns can be made by only cutting your fabric in strips. Wonder how that is achieved? Visit my Tutorials page to see the videos.
None of my patterns have Y seams or curved piecing either, including For the Love of Geese, and the medallion in Nostalgia Twist. These patterns along with 6 others can be purchased in my Etsy or Payhip shops as pdf downloads.Visit my Pattern page to see available patterns.
You will also find free patterns on the Pattern page. The free patterns are only available through my Payhip Shop. While they are free, there is an option to pay what you like. So if you download one of the free patterns and enjoy it I ask that you come back and make a monetary donation.
