Pacific Blues Art Quilt #1 basting added for embroidery and beading lines....

I've got the basting added for Pacific Blues #1 now I'll begin stitching in the embroidery and sewing down the beads. The lines are swirling to suggest movement and waves.

And if you haven't been to Sharon B's Pintangle lately, visit to congratulate her as she's signed a book contract with C&T publishers to get her book on Crazy Quilting published. C&T has published a lot of interesting titles. Sharon has so much inspiration and is a good teacher, that book will be an excellent resource for sure! Congratulations Sharon!

Happy Monday, stop to enjoy something beautiful and pass it on.


  1. It's fun to see your work on this. Embroidery and beading - very interesting.

  2. I really like this one. I'm sure it will be even better when you add embroidery and beading!

  3. I love blue, so this one is likely to be a favourite. Happy about Sharon B doing a book - already have it on my wish list.

  4. I'm so glad to have found your blog - I have been thinking a lot about embellishment on quilt tops recently and I love what you are doing: really creative and original.

    1. Thank you, embellishment is like the frosting on the cake and who doesn't like frosting?

  5. love the hints of orange/rust in this one Janie, they fit beautifully....
