Beads Quilt / Pink Sugar Baby Version

Hi friends, 

Today on the blog I am sharing another Beads quilt sample I made and quilted for the Beads pattern release!

This was such a fun and quick make, and only takes 5 fat quarters and some background fabric! The Pink Sugar Baby Version is a Baby sized Beads quilt featuring the new Sugar line by Ruby Star Society. 

Check out the other Bead Quilt blog posts for inspiration:

Great news - the printer should be sending us the Beads Printed Pattern any day now, I will update you once those have arrived!

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 beginners 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!

Quilting Details

Beads Quilt / Pink Sugar Baby Version - Modernhandcraft.com

For this quilt I knew I wanted something a bit softer than a regular straight line quilting like I did on the previous Beads samples. So I turned to my favorite curvy line trick using my Janome 6700p. 

This always looks way more impressive and difficult to do than it really is, I use the wavy line (on my machine it is stitch number 8), move the width to the largest setting of 9 and stitch length a 3. I place my guide bar at 3/5" or 1" and start sewing like I would with my walking foot like I would any regular quilting stitch. The guide bar just follows along the top curves of the previous line.
