Liberty arcs mini

And here is this, too! I finished it a few weeks ago, but was slow to take photos.


This was an excuse to bust some Liberty scraps. I know it has a Single Girl kind of vibe, but its construction was much more simple. I just paper-pieced my arcs together and then fused them to interfacing, and then zigzagged the circles down. It doesn't look amazing up close, but that's okay!


I will say that my favourite thing about this is probably the rounded corners, which I intended to do from the beginning. I saw Molly use them in her quilt with some pretty precious charms, and she referred to Yahaira's tutorial on the matter. Admittedly, I couldn't get my head around it after reading the tute, but Yahaira then linked to Shelley Rodgers' method, and that made sense to me. Of course, without even a practice run, I cut up the Liberty tana lawn print I purchased from Pink Chalk specifically for binding this mini:) I had a pretty twisty tube in my hands at one point, but thankfully everything worked without a hitch! I really do love the print, as well -- I wanted to go along with the strong presence of pink/fuchsia without having those colours dominate the binding. I'm not usually drawn the Liberty florals, but as trim or binding, there's nothing prettier!
