Quilt project – part 3

I’ve done a little more, and I’m not entirely satisfied, but don’t have time or beads to make it better.  This is what happens when you don’t do samples:  you don’t realize that the oranges that looked enough different in the tube are almost exactly alike on the fabric.  Also, there’s a couple of lines where the beads should be looking more random.

  1. Mmm been there & done that with thinking the colours of the beads would shade how I saw it in my mind’s eye (or the fabric I was beading on) Still looking good tho Ducley

  2. It’s already looking great. I guess you will be adding some more of the lighter orange, so when it’s finished, the different will show better. It’s beautiful!

    1. Right, the lighter oranges are more towards the front of the fish, but I think it’s too subtle. I’m working with beads on hand, and I have a lot — but THIS would be the time when it would be nice to own a store (and live above it), so you could walk downstairs and browse. I take that back, you wouldn’t need to own it, just live above it. Wouldn’t THAT be fun/dangerous? 🙂 Thank you!
