Geesh maybe I'm thick...I even searched for the word 'quilt' on the
page...don't find a lesson for beading on quilts. Which one is it?

Thanks,
Irene

Re: Tutorial for beading on quilts
Ummm.... Irene, "free bead lessons tutorials" is a part of the URL.  I
clicked the link in my post here and it went right to the page for me.
Maybe you need to copy and paste it into your browser?  I'm a complete
dingbat when it comes to computers, so maybe someone else can tell you
more.  Sorry

Irene,

If you are thick, then so am I.  I just went to the link out of
curiosity.  I am not really interested in beading on a quilt.  However,
I couldn't see anything quilt related without investigating dozens of
links.  I didn't have enough interest to follow them all.

Rita L. -  not complaining, just not wanting Irene to feel alone.

Re: Tutorial for beading on quilts
Maybe the original poster will come back and point us in the right
direction on the link for this subject, as several of us are not having
any luck finding that particular topic on the ABOUT.COM URL in the
message.

Re: Tutorial for beading on quilts
The Original Poster has clicked on The Original Link at least a dozen
different times throughout the day and evening and finds that The
Original Link works for The Original Poster each and every time.  The
Original Link is for *beading techniques*.  You will have to use your
own imagination to incorporate the beading techniques at The Original
Link onto your quilts.

The Original Poster has clearly stated that The Original Poster's
computer abilities leave much to be desired.  The exact disclaimer in
The Original Post is quoted "I am a complete dingbat when it comes to
computers".

The Original Poster is sorry that The Original Poster does not possess
the knowledge to assist you any further than furnishing The Original
Link.  The Original Poster wishes The Original Poster had never posted
The Original Link and stirred up This Original Controvery.

your silly, sarcastic reply. =20

It appears that the link heads to a very complete primer on Beading
Basics.  One could, perhaps, decide how to apply said beading project
to a quilt if interested.  

Thanks for the pointer Leslie.  While I don't intend to take up
beading, this may help me to understand better when some of my "beady"
friends start talking about their pashion.

Don't feel bad Irene, another idiot here apparently. I couldn't find the
word "quilt" or anything about beading one either. I would like to point out
that even if the original poster found something about this on the
'about.com' site, when she posts a link it usually puts most people onto the
search subject page no matter what is in the poster's url address
window......that way they can load on the pop ups and cookies and trackers,
if you don't use a good blocker, as you search relentlessly for some morsel
of hidden information. I really hate  about.com  *sigh*

Re: Tutorial for beading on quilts
Thanks for posting that link.  I have a quilt that I am considering doing
some beading on, and I wasn't sure what to do.

I did the beadwork on the Enschede Quilt.
If you plan on putting a lot of beads on you will have to back your
squares with some sort of heavy iron on interfacing. Especially if it is
going to be hung on a wall, or the weight of the glass beads will
distort the fabric.

The block I did was 24x12 inches so was pretty heavy.

Re: Tutorial for beading on quilts
I presume it is the Bead Embroidery section?

In the far off days when I used to do embroidery, we were taught that
you had a double thread in your needle, came up from the back, through
the bead and down through the fabric the length of the bead away from
where you came up. (ie, up through one hole and down through another).
Then push your needle back up at the same point you originally came
up, but instead of going through the bead you position your thread so
that one strand goes to the right of the bead and the other to the
left of the bead. Then you put the needle back down the original
'down' hole.

This method means that the beadhas  the double thread running through
it, and also has a support thread at each side so that it is
stabilized and can't flop about.

Thanks, Sally, good instructions. This
makes perfect sense. I just hope I
remember this when I get around to
sewing some beads!
