    Still working on my latest art quilt - Beading

    This is very time consuming for me because I can't do hand work very long at a time, but I am getting there with the beading. I am also going to add some couching with gold threads, etc. Any suggestions are welcome, I am still a novice at this.

    I've done a wall hanging from this book. My only suggestion is to remember to leave enough room for your foot when you get ready to do the couching. Love what you have done.

    That looks great! I love the idea of beading but I'm not so keen on actually getting down to doing it very often.

    BTW did you know there is a monthly art quilt challenge thread with some great work on it over on the challenges section?

    What a beautiful quilt. When I make wall hanging and want to spruce it up I use Acrylic Stones on mine. Easy on the hands.

    Neat piece! Lots of details, and the beads are great!
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
