One thing I like to do to secure beading on an art quilt is to put some thread knot glue at the base of the beading. It makes it less prone to movement, and I think secures the beads a little better. This is particularly important for pieces that will travel.

It is hard to tell here, but I used Tsukineko inks to paint the doily a mottled color so it was not "stark" against the red background. This was a suggestion from Deborah Stanley, and I think it improved it. It's good to have friends that give you tips to improve your work!

I have this on display at Soft Expressions in the months of March and April as part of the exhibit I am participating in. If you have a chance to stop by and see the exhibit, please be sure to sign the guest book!
