Bead Journal Quilt

This Journal quilt does double duty. It is the August one for www.beadjournalquilt.com and the weekly journal quilt for www.3creativestudios.com  I love getting two for one.

The braid is one that a friend gave me in a box of trims she gave me to use. Crazy quilt is the technique with a pieced background, then the braid was sewn on by hand, hand stitching was next, and finally lots of beading.

Love the quilt--lovely colours but a bit unusual for you.

It's really, really pretty. I love Crazy Quilting, & I love the calming color pallette you used.

I love the braid, but your use of beads is the finishing touch! Beautiful.
