Quilting and Beads

I’ve been thinking about it for weeks before (or instead of) falling to sleep, I even saw its color in front of me. Then newer colors as well that could also make it work. Finally last week I bought the new pintuck foot for my Elna 7300 and began to actualize.


Even though the foot didn’t work out (or I am clumsy), I still didn’t give up and kept trying until I achieved the result that I wanted to.


And here comes my favorite part where I already embroider the beads. :)

Cynthia, I played with the pintuck foot a lot but I have not got the waited result. So I had to find the other way for this effect. :)
