Creative Quilting With Beads
Bags, Aprons, Mini-quilts & MoreBook - 2008
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#65533;d flowers and seed beads, and miniature wall quilt of a stylized bird.
