12 x 12–Between the Lines

As per usual, my first idea for this theme was not the one I finished because out the gate, I miscalculated the needed piece sizes–thank goodness for that.  It was beyond dull.

I had had another idea which involved beading on a striped fabric (Bead ‘Tween the Lines) but after I looked at the planned fabric, that idea was ditched too.  Still, I knew I needed to try beading sometime during this small group exercise and I thought my proposed quilt name was a good one so why not now?  The first problem was purchasing some beads which, after surveying the huge selection, needed at least a fabric color decision.  I had seen a beautiful modified version of a Spiderweb quilt that I also wanted to try so I chose some fabrics and headed down that path.  It all came together rather well I think!

I retired in 2004 and have never missed the 8-5 grind even for a minute. Now I spend my time reading, traveling, quilting and trying to learn new things like Spanish and blogging.

    Very pretty. You can take all your 12x12s and group them together on the wall in your studio – that is if you have a vacant wall. Several of these blocks (including the frame) would make a very nice quilt – I love that pattern.

    Very pretty! I like the dark blue star very much and it highlights the beading so well!
