Bead Crazy

The finishing touches are done on the beaded crazy quilt block, now titled Bead Crazy. I think I am going through bead withdrawal and will need to start another project soon. Here are a few photos of the finished work... It is 16"x16".

A close up of some of the bead work. The spider is one of my favorite elements.



All of the embellishment is done with beads with a few exceptions of flowers made with ultrasuede.

And the back.......
