little quilt monday #2....a finish and a wip

I have finished my mini lazy cathedral window made with three dimensional flying geese.  I decided to hand stitch in the ditch and I like the way it looks.  It measures 18.5 inches square.  I first showed how I made this pattern here and here.  I am linking up to Fabric Tuesday with Quilt Story.

My hand stitches are in an aqua crochet thread.




My work in progress is Circular Applique from The Purl Bee.


I didn't make the circles exactly the same size or amount as the pattern, but I did use a fusible and turn as they suggested.  I used a creamy linen as my background fabric and some of my Liberty of London fabric that I am saving for special projects like this.   I am ready to start sewing them down by hand and I hope they will look more like circles when I finish : )



Now it is your turn to   link up  your small project to Little Quilt Monday! 
A small project is a mini quilt, table runner, mug rug, doll quilt, pillow, pouch, wall hanging, what ever you are working on or have finished.  Please mention that you have linked up here on your blogpost : )  Lets inspire each other....
piece,
elizabeth

I love the Cathedral Windows mini! I've been wanting to try making a similar project for awhile, but have been too scared to try.
