    wow--that is REALLY neat!!

    Could you give more details?? Is it fabric or wool? Did you string the beads yourself? How in Heaven's name did you hang it so that the entire thing is flat on the wall???? Is this an original design or did you use a pattern? How long did it take you to make it? What method did you use for your applique?? Nosy, aren't I??? Inquiring minds need to know!! :lol:

    This is my own design, I started this on yesterday morning and I fished it early this morning. I did the bead work, I justed started quiltling about 9 mo ago so I'm sure I did something wrong, when it comes to applique. Basicly I drew it and then used steam a seam and then sewed it down afterwords I quilted with my machine, and the did the bead work, I have been beading for about 10yr's maybe more. This is cotton scraps I have had laying arround, I purchased from a local quilt shop. I have it taced to the wall, I'm planning on useing the small plastic rings, used in knitting to hand the back. hope I answered all your questions. I'm planning on make a pattern for this, but it may take me awhile to get out. I'm seeking help from a local women who makes patterns, to help me put it all together. Anymore questions feel free to ask :)

    Cheers

    Yes, my dragon this was my 1st design appilque and I'm hoping to get that in a design as well. To be honest with you I wish that I could read a quilting pattern I have some amazing patterns I want to do, but every time I try one it turns out not like how it's sopose to, one day I will figure it out....lol I have some other drawings that I have done, that will soon become wall hanging's or quilts.
