    Start of a beaded quilt

    Starting a challenge for our quilt guild chapter--due next April so lots of time to work on it. The dimensions are 22 inches long and up to 30 inches wide--odd size but I think I can make it work. I am using vintage linen crazy pieced for the background and playing with beading and embroidery. Fun so far.

    Your piece is going to be beautiful! I am an avid crazy quilter, and love all the delicate embroidery and beading. Are you going to do any ribbon embroidery? Hope you will post more pictures as you go along.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Very antique and delicately toned down and would love to see the overall design plan for your project. Thank you.
