Photo: What should this one be called? "Circle of friends?" This is a panel I bought while visiting in Portland, bordered, free-motion quilted, and beaded. I made many of the beads myself -- too bad they are so hard to see in this photo. Adding them to the quilt was a tremendous amount of work, but worth it!
You learn so much when you try out things. One tidbit I learned rather belatedly is that the borders should have been added AFTER I did all the free-motion quilting and beading. Then it would hang flat. Live and learn. Would it be cheating to add a sleeve to the bottom in back and slide in a flat rod?
