Beads on a String
Modern quilt pattern for a scrappy quilt.
The listing is for a PDF pattern of a beautiful modern quilt that is fun to make using your favorite scraps. You have the choice of how far you want to go with this quilt. You can keep it very simple by making each colorful block out of just one fabric or go all the way with foundation paper piecing using a variety of scraps, add dimension with trapunto, and add interest to the binding with piping.
The pattern will help you create a wall hanging or a lap quilt of 54" x 60" but, by adding additional rows and columns, this quilt can be easily turned into a bed quilt.
Fabric requirements, links to technique tutorials, and three "bead" templates are offered.
