This project file was started so I could play with beaded applique borders, in particular, getting around corners.
String of beads, no matter how I tangle them up, are my favourite traditional style applique quilts to play with virtually, as well as in real life.
The applique was originally turned applique, either needle turn or folded and tacked before stitching, but now I can fuse the beads onto the background, and stitch by hand or machine. The quickest is to use a narrow zigzag by machine, and I like buttonhole stitch by hand.
They would also be easy machine quilting motifs, and of course would also be great for hand quilting.
