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!

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.
