To keep the overall texture consistent on the crazy pieced areas of my quilt, I decided the border blocks had to be beaded. So I have begun the slow march around the perimeter of my "H" quilt. A-beading I must go! This is a time for discipline and perseverance!
What I really want to do is play with all my (as yet untouched) new supplies from Houston, which are imploring me to use them from a nearby table.
However, committment is committment!
I am varying the size and spacing of the beads in the border blocks as I did in the central section.
It was fun putting that flag in there for the Old Marine.
That little gold fan opens and shuts...it is interactive!
These pictures constitute only one quarter of the border blocks to be beaded. I need to watch a looonnngggggg mini-series to get me through this. Any suggestions?
My eventual reward!...
Many of these supplies were given to me by their manufacturers in order for me to review them for CQMagOnline next year, and to create samples using them for their booths. I wouldn't have been able to go this insane with my credit card....
Isn't that flocked fabric on the right cool? It is felt made from recycled water bottles!
So I am motivated to finish this beading.....
