Just a Bit of Embroidery

I needed a small take along project while I was visiting the Sisters Quilt Show this past weekend.  Looking through the unfinished projects that I had, I decided to take the quilt square from my July 1 post and start playing with embroidery and beads, like a crazy quilt type of stitching.  I spent a few hours playing and realized that I need to get some more small beads and some different threads to add pizazz.  So here is what I have so far.

I am using three ply floss and size 11 Delica beads.  I am looking for something that will make this POP.  Any ideas for bead or floss colors???

  1. I don’t have any suggestions, but I sure like what you’re doing!

    I’m thinking buttons…

    I agree with buttons or some larger bead elements, but I think that stitched embellishments added to the plain seams would also be a plus.

    Check out Annie’s Crazy World blog for some great inspiration.
