We had a very nice meeting this month, with beautiful show and tell, and a bead making session. Unfortunately, my camera acted up and I lost some of my photographs. Most were of Pat’s beautiful African photo quilt. Her husband is a terrific photographer, and they printed some of his images onto fabric. The quilt was spectacular, and Pat added a section of finger weaving that suited the piece perfectly. She’ll be teaching us how to finger weave next month.
The fabric beads were a lot of fun to make. The instructions are in the Spring 2003 issue of Quilting Arts magazine. Here are pictures of some of the beads:
I passed on a url for some knotted beads too, and they looked really good:
Various fabrics were used such as fleece, ultrasuede and cotton. All of them looked darn good, don’t you think?
