Hi everyone, I haven’t been able to sew at all today because we’ve had another power cut
Anyway, sometime ago I hinted to my blogging friend Teje that she had inspired me to make something but that it would be a while before I made it. I didn’t really want to give any secrets away about what I’m planning to create, so please don’t tell her I’m asking you all how to do this……. shhh, no telling
The project, in my head, requires me to attach beads to a quilt. I have searched all over the internet and can’t get an answer to my question, which is:
Do I attach beads to a quilt before it is backed and quilted or after everything else has been finished? My first thought on this was to sew them on at the end but that might create an unsightly mess on the back. However, if I sew them on before the backing is attached, the wadding will be falling off the quilt top while I’m stitching. Have you ever attached beads to your quilts?
Any advice greatly appreciated as always
