Color Palette Challenge - August

The color palette for August's challenge was chosen by Vicki Welsh at Field Trips in Fiber.
For this month's challenge, I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go or what new technique I wanted to try.  When I went to pull fabric from my stash, this circle fabric was sitting at the top.  The colors matched perfectly, so I knew that I had to use it. 
I decided that this month I would work with circles.  This mini is maybe the smallest piece I have ever made at 8 x 8.  The circles are hand appliqued with added beads.  It came out better than I thought and is very cute.
Please check out other challenge pieces at Patchwork Times.
