My quilt guild, Needle Chasers of Chevy Chase, is having our biannual quilt show this December. The show is featuring a challenge to our members to "try something new" maybe a technique you've never done before or doing something in a new way. I have never done beading or embellishments of any kind on a quilt so I decided that would be my challenge. I am planning to embellish and finish the quilt pictured on my blog, "Snowflake Hex" but thought I should begin with a practice piece - thus, "Pink Flowers." It's a mini-quilt measuring 10" x 14". The pattern comes from the book, Creative Quilting With Beads by Valerie Van Arsdale Shrader. I love the way it turned out!
