Hand Beaded Quilt

I am working on a hand-beaded quilt for entry at MQS. This is a photo after 3 different beading patterns. It is slow going, but it is turning out well. I can see why many quilters use hot fixed crystals instead of hand-beading - it must be faster and easier on the hands. I am having so much trouble with pain in my hands the past 2 days that I know I'm beading too many hours per day. Deadline for shipping is going to come way too fast for me so I have to keep at it.

I think there is a time and place for each, hot fix crystals and beading.

Abundance of crystals isn't always an answer, but never can have too much beading.

Bead on, Susan.
