Hi friends!

Today I am kicking off the Modern Handcraft Palette Picks Bundle for Robert Kaufman parade with one of my favorite makes - Beads quilt!

What I love about this particular project is that I used the entire 20 fat quarters in bundle order on the Beads layout - so you not only get to see all of the fabrics in one project, it's a color explosion!

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.

Like I said earlier I used the entire bundle of fabric for this particular quilt - the pattern usually calls for 10 fat quarters, or 20 fat eighths so you could realistically make 2 of these quilts with this bundle!

The Modern Handcraft Palette Picks bundle is a fun mix of Kona cottons and Essex Linens, giving you just a bit of extra texture. 

My tip for sewing with an Essex linen is to reduce your stitch length when sewing your blocks, I usually use a 1.8 length for all piecing - just so all of my blocks are very secure. Pressing your Essex linen with starch is also great to prep it before cutting.

My bundle will be shipping this November 2023, so be sure to ask your local quilt shop to carry it!

Heather Alexander of HAndmade Longarm Service did the quilting for this quilt and I am so happy with how it turned out. I also highly recommend Heather for any of your quilting needs - she is fast, does an incredible job and is one of the kindest people you will ever meet if you get the chance! She's also a local gal and I love supporting local friends whenever I can.
