Bead Quilt Squares

For the past several years, at the Bead & Button Bead Show, there have been bead quilts. These quilts have been auctioned off to the highest bidders and the proceeds donated to breast cancer research. The bead quilts are made up of individual beaded squares that contain images of the current year’s theme. The squares are created by beaders worldwide, collected and sewn into quilts. The responses and results are always fabulous.

While the bead squares can be done in any medium, they must reflect the current year’s motif. This year’s theme is “Flowers: Stitching to find a bloomin’ cure.”

The majority of squares are done using the peyote stitch. Somehow, through the years, I have managed to avoid learning that stitch. Well, those days are over. I have taught myself how to do the basic stitch and, for the first time, I have created 3 bead squares to contribute to the project.  Yea!!
