Heather Thomas teaches you how to hand bead so you can add even more extravagance to your quilt. It is very simple to learn and she teaches you using only five basic stitches. The different types you will learn is the bugle stitch that uses bugle beads, the stack stitch using multiple fancy beads, a single stitch, a back stitch to fill something with beads, and a stacking stitch.
The Four-Legged Knot Stitch is wonderful for texture building. Including beads adds to the glamour of the embroidery work. Experiment with various colors to make clusters of this stitch that can highlight your work.
