Back to some beading of the fabric sort.
When I first saw a String of Beads design in a magazine I started drawing lines of beads, then quickly started drawing lines and imagining the beads. At the time I had scrap books full of line drawings of possible block designs and I decided I didn’t need to redraw all those to imagine a row of fabric beads covering those lines.
Then I bought Electric Quilt 5 and started drafting virtual blocks … built up a huge collection very quickly, then started playing with the blocks.
This last week I spent time going through all those old project files, tossed a heap of double ups and false start, then opened up and saved the survivors in Electric Quilt 7. Found another couple in EQ6 along the way, along with a heap of double ups!
Several of those project files have had a few designs featured here already, some are untouched. All project files will make an appearance in the next week, or have been around before the middle of the week rudely interrupted.
Found lots more project files unrelated to strings of beads too … I am saving them for later.
