mini-quilt monday #2, "summer breeze"

I have no idea how often I'll do mini-quilt Monday, but here is my second one:

Photo taken at night, the color is sadly off a bit in this picture.
Circles were appliqued and quilted in one step, by hand, with embroidery floss. All the quilting was done by hand.

Pieced back.

I haven't named a lot of my quilts but I decided this one was to be called "Summer Breeze" because it's made mostly of vintage bed linens. And maybe several of them spent some time on the clothesline a long time ago.

This was given to TDK Katie for the summer 2009 doll quilt swap. I haven't swapped there for ages but this was a good one and I'm glad I joined in.

Ohhhhhh, I think I like the back just a little bit more than the front! Looks great!

I agree. I really like the back. You'd never know it was made out of vintage linens. Nice job.
