We will be creating quilt squares for the Bead-It-Forward project using bead embroidery . The theme this year is hearts, and Carol Marlin will have simple directions for bead embroidery that she will teach at the meeting. She will also provide a simple heart pattern for peyote stitch and square stitch that you can do at home and bring back to the next meeting.
Work on a simple pattern incorporating a heart that will fit inside the 1 1/2" square and bring along. (Keep in mind, attaching beads with glue or tape is not permitted.) Also for inspiration, check out the submissions that have already been received on Jeanette Shanigan's Web site.
IBS will supply the pellon and the heart shaped beads (see photo) for those that care to use them. We will also have copies of the submission form for you to fill out.
