Bunch of Beads 23, 24 from Virtual Quilter

One simple applique shape … so many ways to add them to a quilt.

Love the second design today …. love the way the blocks came together to form frames around the clusters of beads on four of the blocks.

Tangled String of Beads 35, 36 from Virtual Quilter

I love the first design.

Enough beads to be interesting, but with some open spaces for some equally interesting quilting.

I love the second one too … find a heap of colorful but close matching fabrics, and start cutting, and place on a neutral background!

Gran’s New Beads 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

Love it.

In this project file I am playing with beads of different shapes and sizes, then using the blocks as both applique blocks and quilting motifs. The first design uses a lot more quilted than applique beads.

The second design makes uses of lots of identical blocks with just one focal block, but there is more variation in the quilting motifs.

Beaded Border Strings 17, 18 from Virtual Quilter

In the design above I was playing with ways to get around corners with the beads, without getting them too tangled. I like the results.

Two designs, and ten ways to get around corners … this is FUN!

As you may know I like playing with quilting designs too, and I have found a great post on how to quilt applique blocks … and quilts.

Bunch of Beads 14, 15, 16 from Virtual Quilter

One simple shape, but lots of them!

I didn’t like the first centre, so made a change … much better. I like the new border colour too.

Love the last one!

Tangled String of Beads 29 from Virtual Quilter

Love it!

Please note, the daily virtual quilt designs will appear as usual over the next week, but that is because WordPress allows me to schedule ahead. In real life we have visitors coming, going, returning, and sitting around eating, talking and laughing. I will return to what I call normal sometime next week!

Love this, though the colour of the binding could be improved.
