Creative Quilting with Beads: Bags, Aprons, Mini-Quilts and More
Quilters have moved beyond the traditional boundaries of their art, embellishing their work with layers of beads, embroidery, and surface design. They—as well as other fiber artists and sewers—will warmly welcome this idea-packed resource with 24 projects that will open up a new realm of creative potential. The illustrated basics section covers a variety of ways to affix beads to textiles; a quilting primer is included, too, as a helpful refresher. But most of all, stitchers will enjoy experimenting with the featured techniques and making a retro-chic throw pillow, fabric greeting card with appliqu d flowers and seed beads, and miniature wall quilt of a stylized bird.
