Giveaway: Creative Quilting with Beads

February 17, 2012, 16:24 pm  Posted by needlearts

You may have seen the post before Valentine’s Day on Quilting a Love Letter. But Deborah Boschert’s beaded X’s and O’s are just one of the beautiful projects inside Creative Quilting with Beads.

From the still-life style pomegranate on the cover to abstract shapes, using beads can add a dimensional quality to quilts that few other techniques can match.

Don’t believe us? Check it out yourself! This week we’re giving away a copy of Creative Quilting with Beads.

    Oh my gosh, I see that piece with a pomegranate…I love those! It’s so beautiful. I never would have thought of quilting one and using beads. I bet this is a gorgeous book.

    What a beautiful piece of art! I have embellished applique with beads but never like this. Being able to take quilting and beading to the next level is awesome.

    awesome work – I have had some great ideas along these lines but the very traditional (majority) quilters in my area don’t like this.  I would LOVE to win this book and run with it !

    This sounds great! Quilting/crafting is an art, everyone does it differently, I have never tried this and I would love to!!

    It looks like a beautiful book! Lark Books rocks!

    Teri says:

    I think just about any motif would be great with beads!  But, I’d probably try some flowers…

    I’d love to learn how to combine beads with quilting.  I’ve got quite a stash of beads – and no clue what to do with them!

    craftymom says:

     I would love to learn about beading with quilts!  I love beading and have recently jumped into quilting.  I would love to combine two of my favorite hobbies.  Both of these hobbies have evolved due to my two precious babies…they are my inspiration!!!!!

    Charity says:

    Vickielampron says:

    OH! I adore beading and to combine it with my quilitng….that would be heaven!

    Abailey says:

    This sounds a lovely book, I’d love to win it.  I think a peacock would look fabulous with beads – all the colours.  Unfortunately, I wouldn’t use it as peacocks in a house are considered unlucky in this part of the world!

    Wanda says:

    It sounds like a GRAND book — I think the best thing to bead would be a chicken with sneakers….

    Anne Bailey says:

    I love learning any new craft and have wanted to learn quilting for several years, but don’t know where to start!  I would think that quilting with beads would just enhance this traditional craft.  Really, really hope I win this book.
