My Ravel continued

This is the back of the quilt.  I am hooking beads and Kreinik #4 very fine braid in a pattern that echos the flowers in the lace design on the front panels that the embroidered circles are layered over. 

The pattern from the back shows through to the front.  This will  sandwich the front, batting and back together.  

After the embroidery is done on the back the panels will be sewn on the front covering covering the stitching

How I found the black rice pearls
At the Heart of the Mart in Brimfield this past July my husband payed a vist to one of his favorite tool dealer.  I caught up with him in this dealers booth.  To my delight the dealers wife had 4  dresser draws filled with beads she had gotten  at auction.  She didn't have very many small 3/4 mm beads but said she had a spare room filled with beads and was sure she had lot of small ones at home.  Lucky for me she lives in CT and I arranged to meet her a couple weeks after the July show.  I bought more beads then I will surly use in this lifetime.  The round beads were purchased at a local shop.

P.S Thanks Joe for saying you missed my posts!
