finished liberty circle mini quilt


I am so happy with my mini quilt finish,  Liberty Circle Applique, that I first showed as a work-in-progress here on Little Quilt Monday.   I am not very comfortable with applique,  but this technique is something that I was able to do without any trouble.



This mini is 16 X16 inches.  The background and backing fabrics are linen and that made the needle  very easy to pull through while hand stitching.  Using the Liberty of London fabric and the linen made this a very soft quilt and has inspired me to make a larger one!






I used one of my favorite Liberty of London fabrics for the binding and I think it was the right choice : )
I hope you will continue to check in with Little Quilt Monday  and join me as I link up with

Beautiful! I've been saving some special Liberty of London fabric like little treasures, but now I might have to pull it out to make a quilt like this -- It shows off the Liberty fabric so well.
