liberty circles mini quilt
I treated myself to a sewing project this past week. I have a few quilts in progress but, I wanted something I knew I would start and finish quickly and remembered this project from the Purl Bee. It took about a week start to finish. I had all of the materials on hand only needing to substitute a medium weight muslin for the top and backing and make it a wee bit smaller. You know how much I love to sew with the Liberty Tana lawn and using my scraps I had enough variety to make 20 different circles. After making the circles you appliqué them onto the white fabric and then hand quilt it to the backing with batting in between. There are 20 circles in all and it measures about 23" x 25."
Though I love to make quilts my favorite thing to sew is clothes especially for little kids. How about you? Do you prefer one or the other?
