Crazy Quilting - Rose Central

I've got two or three things I want to try next so I'm going to keep them all quite small so they don't take too long. I've discovered crazy quilting and I want to combine this with bead embroidery. I have lots of material scraps but inevitably ended up buying new and these are the six I chose to use.

The colours haven't come out well here. The two plain fabrics at the back are blue although they look quite green here. They are from an old pillow case; the one on the left is the cotton back and the top right is silky with a slub effect. 

This is what I came up with once I'd done the quilting bit. It's about 8 inches square.

I have been told I should leave it as it is but the desire to add shiny beads is just too strong so watch this space...
