Mosaic circles beaded quilt

This was a little practice piece (about 12" square again) to have another go at using my free motion sewing machine foot.


The cream background is a kind of damask that I had left over from covering a sofa. I appliqued on the circles then used the free motion foot to outline some of the leaves.









I think it came out quite well.
Then I added the beads inspired by some mosaic tile work I'd seen. Here are a few close ups.





For some reason this was particularly difficult to photograph. The actual pieces has a brightness that I can't quite capture. I'm not quite sure which way up this piece goes - it doesn't seem to matter much.
