Subject: Re: [onlinesewing-janome] Glass Fusible Beads
Having just put beads on an ornament project, practice before putting them on a quilt. I made the mistake of putting them too close to each other which made the unit pooch! I also found that taking a stitch putting on a bead then attaching that to the fabric followed up by a stitch that had no bead locked in the bead. So in other words stitch, put on bead, stitch no bead, then stitch with a bead - repeat! I found out from experimentation that an additional stitch after the bead stabilized the previous stitches.
As for the window, I would throw the onus back on her to provide the glass fusible beads! An alternate solution would be to use a bright yellow or yellow/orange batik and blow off the glass fusible beads. You can’t work with what you can’t get; but a backup plan is always handy!

Put the beads on after the quilt is totally finished.
