What was your inspiration? My 2009 entry to the Alliance for American Quilts, Crazy for Quilts contest. The quilt was featured in the 2010 April/May issue of Quilters Newsletter as well as the June 2010 Victorian Homes Magazine. the main block in Crazy for Beads is 12" square and finished with a 2" border. I decided not to do any beading in the border and will add a beaded picot biding to the edge. I think the motifs and border fabric that I added to the block created a subtle Asian feel to the design that is quite pleasing.
