Introducing Smitten Kitten! It was over two years ago that I shared the Dog Gone Cute and I can’t believe it has taken me this long to come up with a cat pattern that would be it’s equivalent. But for me it was worth the wait and I couldn’t be happier with these sweet kittens!
Here you can see the Smitten Kitten quilt hanging out on the hay wagon in front of the bean field and with the beautiful blue sky in the background.
The kittens were made using a fat quarter bundle of the Daisy Days collection by Keera Job for Riley Blake Designs, solids for the ears, noses, eyes and occasional white striped cat face, added for interest.
The Daisy Days collection made it easy for me. You know how much I have been challenging myself to use more prints in my quilts. This collection has a wonderful selection of colours and different types of prints.
Dainty tone on tones….
A great mix that also includes a stripe with flowers.
As a first for me, for the background I used Essex Yarn-Dyed in Charcoal. And for the backing I ordered a Widescreen Crosshatch in Black. I ordered enough for the width of the quilt. So because I like to quilt parallel to the crossgrain of the backing, this was quilted from top to bottom, instead of my usual side to side.

Lorna, the name is as cute as these kittens! They are darling rendered in any fabric! Congrats on your release!
This is a beauty, and as it has had what I call \” Ginger Cat Approval\” everyone agrees. I love the grey fabric, the wavy lines and the binding a great finish. Ditto to Paige, great name too!!!
Way too cute! My Christmas Wishlist just keeps getting longer and longer!
