Beads Quilt / Starburst Version

Hi friends, 

Today I am sharing the last of the sample quilts I made and quilted for the new Beads Quilt pattern release!

I shared this quilt a while back on Instagram and someone commented that it reminded them of starburst candies - it totally does! So today we have the newly named version of the Beads Quilt - this is the Starburst Version. 

Check out the other Beads Quilt blog posts for inspiration:

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

For this quilt I used a straight line stitch, with a spacing of 3/4" using my guide bar attached to my walking foot. I then went back through and did a straight line stitch through the middle of the previous 3/4" spaced lines. This was quite a bit of work, but the denseness of the stitches created a fantastic texture!

This was sewn and quilted on my Janome Memory Craft 6700p.
