Beaded Poppies






Beaded Poppies is complete with the exception of hand sewing the binding on the back. I thought I would go ahead and photograph it anyway. I could not get very good photos for some reason. Tried different lighting etc, but it just does not show the beads like it should and the orange and turquoise is not real true. I loved the look of the closeups so I included them just for fun. When I finish the binding tonight I will rephotograph the entire quilt with borders and the back.

I do not know what I will do now while watching tv! It was nice to do some hand work. Maybe I will do another.

I spent much of my evening last night reading magazines that I have not had the time to do more then page through before. So much information in them. Really enjoyed Quilting Arts magazine this month. Lots of techniques I want to try this summer with paints and dyes. SAQA's magazine is very technical and requires my mind to be wide awake when I read it, so that will have to wait until the morning one day or perhaps I will take it to work and try to read it there.
Then Quilters Newsletter had a survey I wanted to participate in. It was quite long but I have subscribed to that magazine from the very beginning and felt like it was my obligation to let them know what I still like and do not like about it now. Anyway, by entering you are automatically eligible for an ipod! :)

Now it is back to "The Girls".

I just know that no photograph would probably do that piece justice! Very inventive-the beads look great too. It was enjoyable to watch your progress on that one so thank you again.

Wow.. Barbara... these are incredible.. I have to send my sis here.. she does crazy quilting and a lot of beading. I would love to see this in person. Do you think you will put it in a show?

I think the close-ups look very cool and show the detail to advantage. It must be a magnificent quilt in person.
