Have you seen the Smitten quilt pattern by Lucy Carson Kingwell? I discovered this quilt when I went to English Paper Piecing Addiction Group at Back Door Quilts last Monday. My friend, Michelle, had ordered the pattern and was working on her second block. It looked like fun, so I came home and ordered the pattern and the paper pieces for the quilt. Here is my first block:
These blocks have two different sized pieces that make up the blocks. There are a few 3 inch hexagons, sixty degree diamonds, and 3 inch equilateral triangles. Everything else is 1 1/2": hexagons, half hexagons, sixty degree diamonds, and equilateral triangles. Most of the blocks that I've seen on the Smitten Facebook group page are made with bright fabrics. While I have some brights, Kaffe, Brandon, Tula Pink and others, I always seem to return to my Civil War/repro fabrics. And, there are a lot of those that are kind of bright.
You can see the comparison between my first Smitten block and my first partial block of the Millefiori Quilt Along. There is one more round that makes up the first block of Millefiori. That block would measure 36" if I finished the next two rounds. This is the entire first Smitten block, and I'm ready to move on to the second block. So I'm off on another adventure.
I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
