I’m having fun with the postcards but always feel a little guilty about working on them rather than one of my quilts. I guess it’s all those tops waiting for quilting. Tonight I could have been working on bindings but decided to make a postcard and try beading it.
Keep in mind this is my first attempt and that I’m not very artistic. I stitched the seams on the machine with the feather stitch thinking I’d just bead the tips but I quickly decided that would be boring so I decided to just play. I’m not sure if this is done yet – I’m going to go to sleep and look at it again tomorrow. Once I do the edging, I’ll also have to fill in some beads but I tried not to get to close to the edge since I don’t want to run over any beads with my sewing machine.
Click the photo to enlarge or maybe it would be kinder NOT to look too closely.
- Assembled my boxed squares blocks and that top is finished – the blocks were from a Jelly Roll from stash
- Quilted an ugly UFO – the top was all from stash back when I pieced it in 2006 and I used stash for the backing
- No fabric purchases again this week
I did purchase books and beads but I’m focused on my fabric not my books and I’ll blame my current interest in Crazy Quilting for my desire to try some beading.
