Smitten, Smitten, Smitten

smitten-rosebushHave a I rambled enough about how much I love this quilt design? I took it to the rose garden in my neighborhood and thought I would snap a few creative pictures. Not a good idea! The quilt top with exposed seams got caught on every little thorn!

smitten-modalissa-quilttopSo I “artistically” threw it over a bench and loved how the quilt top looked. I was so busy looking at the quilt that I didn’t even realize how cool the brick was until I was about to crop it out of the picture. I had to keep those tessellating Texas shaped bricks in the picture!

I am pleased to say that Smitten is complete and off to the quilter.

The quilt top has been complete for a little while but I wanted to use my leftover bits and pieces to add to my quilt back. Funny story: I showed the back to a friend of mine and she loved it. I said wait until you see the front. Her only comment was I like the back better. Ouch, right? The front is nothing but set in seams! So for that reason I am not showing you the back until it is back from the quilter. Don’t get me wrong, it is cool in a funky, minimalist, modern kind of way!

Thanks for stopping by.

    It’s gorgeous. Did you machine stitch it or hand stitch? I searched and found the pattern which does offer hand piecing (which I would never do)…..thanks..

      I started out hand piecing while on a long trip but I did 95% by machine. The Marti michell templates, set H made it easy to cut out regardless of how you decide to see it together.
