I'm taking part in the Bead Journal Project again and this time I'll do a journal sized quilt using batik fabrics. Here is September. First I hand couched a decorative cord in the design area using a metallic thread. Then I machine quilted the background to hold the batik to some batting. Beading is heavy and needs the support. Next came lots of hand beading. Lastly, I backed and bound it using the decorative cord along the edge of the binding.
Or perhaps it should go this way. What do you think?
