Beads Quilt / Friendship Bracelet Version

Hi friends, 
Over the next couple of weeks I will be sharing more about each of the Beads quilts I made and quilted for the Beads pattern release!
Today's quilt is my absolute favorite version of the Beads quilt - this is the Friendship Bracelet Version.

The Beads quilt was inspired by a favorite activity between my son Grey and I, making beaded friendship bracelets. This is a fun, modern quilt pattern for advanced beginner to intermediate quilters, or those who enjoy sewing curves. 

The pattern is fat quarter and fat eighth friendly, or scrappy for a really fun look!

The Beads pattern includes coloring sheets, cutting diagrams, full color instructions and some great "how to sew" videos on sewing + trimming up the Diamond and Circle blocks. I will walk you through the process on how to sew your blocks together, so even if you are completely new to sewing curves you will learn a new skill and have fun in the process!
Scroll down for news on the upcoming sew along we are going to have for the Beads quilt - March 16th - May 4th!

Quilting Details

Beads Quilt / Friendship Bracelet Version - Modernhandcraft.com

For this quilt I wanted to keep it simple and clean so I did a straight line spaced at 1/2". My dual feet foot actually has this spacing from the needle to the edge of the foot, so I was able to just use the foot as my guide when quilting. 

I currently quilt on a Janome Memory Craft 6700p.
