Bead Journal Project

Here is a photo of my Bead Journal Quilt for November. It is on a batik with sequins sewn down by using the Back Stitch for beading. The first row is stitched through the fabric.The second row is stitched to the first, and the third through the second.

Remember to comment if you want to be in the drawing for a hand painted silk scarf for my blog anniversary next Friday. The choices are shown in the Nov. 21st post.

What I love is the way you have the beads and sequins placed on the fabric. It's an amazing arrangement!

What a pleasure it is to comment on your November BJP quilt and at the same time be in the drawing to celebrate 1 year of blogging!!! All three... quilt, blog and scarves... are fabulous!!! I love this design, which seems related to one of my favorites of your BJP pieces from last year. I think it's such a powerful thing to keep working with a design concept!

Your pieces always inspire me! I may have to get out my sewing machine and try some new things. Love the color choices! The pearls add a really nice contrast. Never thought about an anniversary celebration for a blog..Hmmm..great idea!
