Some quilts just talk to you at once…
and so did this quilt…
pattern is by Lucy Carson Kingwell…
and the quilt I'm talking about is
“Smitten”
 
I ordered templates for easier cutting and decided to machine piece
this one instead of hand piecing it…
just because I wanted to see if I could! And I did!
 
Early on I had envisioned this one with low volume fabrics…
so it was an easy choice to start…
and I was intrigued by how fun it was to sew the blocks and to fussy cut them…
even if I had trouble at start with making holes in my fabrics!!
 
I just had to make another block and then another block…
trying different fabrics and colours…
Pure fun ….from start to a finished top…then it took stop…
 
Couldn't decide on how to quilt this one …
and put it aside for inspiration to struck…and are still waiting!
Guess it will come…it usually does!
 
In the mean time I can enjoy looking at my top! 😉

    Amazing work! makes me want to drop what I’m doing and find the pattern and order fabric and lock myself in my sewing room for a week. Thank you for sharing. Well done, you! Toni

  3. Absolutely beautiful! I love the fresh and clean colours you have used! A delightful finish!

  4. Hi! This is like a flower field on a sunny day! I love all the sweet, pastel colour with few bright spots and the pattern is beautiful! If you quilt this during the winter you never notice those dark, cold days. x Teje
