Embellished Quilt   spacer 20" x 15.5 "

Thom Atkins

I was doing a demonstration of Beaded Bezels at Road to California and need a piece to work on so I created this from some Kaffe Faccett fabric and a complementary batik. I wanted clean lines of beading so I machine stitched over all the lines I wanted to bead before beginning to sew beads on. I did the beaded bezels around the mirrors first, then beaded the lines out from the centers of the flowers.

As in ?Raven Dreaming?, it was interesting to see how the silver color of the beads changed the tone of the flowers as opposed to the ones used in the BJP piece ?August?.
