Stitching for Customers

I keep machine quilting for my customers and then forget to ask if I can post photos. Well this past weekend David Taylor came to get this Bright and Beautiful Flying Geese quilt of his. And I remembered to ask. I just love this quilt because it is a rainbow of colours. 

A detail of the machine quilting I did. I love what I did on this quilt so much I might had to make one. The inside of the block has this sunshine like pattern and the outside is a few spirals and more flame like stitching. It is all done by free motion so if I look closely I can see small changes with in each block.

I believe David found the pattern for the block on the internet. The block is paper piecing done in four parts. I believe I have seen this pattern but not sure where. I am sure I will find it again.
Edit note I have found the free pattern called Circle of Geese by Beth at Piece by Number.


  1. Lovely quilt and wonderful quilting! Wouldn't that be a great pattern for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

  2. What a great piece! I love the floating Flying Geese! Wow! Might have to track that one down and try it too.

  3. I love it. The pattern and the quilting are both great. Yes, I agree, this would be good for the RSC...love the quilting on this quilt..

  4. I love how you did the spiral star in the background...very clever!

  5. Hi Cathy! Found your post via Google. Actually that Circle of Geese pattern is one of my designs :-) It's available for free from either Craftsy or my website at the following link: http://piecebynumber.com/circleofgeese.htm Would appreciate it very much if you could add the link to your post :-)
