  1. Now that’s a lot of applique! Hmmm…it could also be a very cool embroidery piece!

    • Laura,

      Fusing the beads makes these designs much easier than they look! I agree, it could be used for embroidery.

    Miaou – I can see how the quilting might happen – the rest of it is a mystery to this non-quilter!

    • Cat,

      Just like some of the knitting you do is a mystery to me! I know how to do the basics, and have a vague idea of some of the slightly intricate stitches … then there is the other stuff! My Mum knitted way too quickly for me to be able to see what she was doing when she got to the fiddly bits!

    After having attempted a String of Beads quilt, I seem to have a soft spot for them now. Hence, I like the one above, very nice!

    • Marie,

      I think we all tend to notice something which reminds us of something we have done ourselves … or in my case something I have done virtually!

    I agree that this is really nice and a lot of applique. Fusing would definitely help but it would be really easy to get this out of alignment without precise marking of placement lines.

    • Cindy,

      I have done a few of these designs, and found that by making a cardboard template to mark the lines first, then just cover the lines. Many of the scribbled designs I have on paper just have the lines, not the beads covering them … made sense to me even years after doing the scribbles, but have to admit the versions of those scribbles now in EQ look much prettier!
