ALYoF Jan and Finish it Friday

Two words about this photo shoot...Windy and Weeds!  Dry sticks actually. I clomped through some pretty sketch areas but really it was an excuse to enjoy the superb weather that day. I was not going to try to shoot this quilt out of doors but 58 degrees called to me. :)
So my January A Lovely Year of Finishes = The Bead quilt. I think I am going to call it paper beads. It reminds me of the magazine print roll up beads I used to make as a kid.
A Lovely Year of Finishes
The more I walked the cooler the areas there were to explore. 
Back from my walk...see the crinkly goodness? This is a simple wavy line quilting that I thought would sort of add to the abacus spinning on the bars. Eh, not sure if it worked but I like how crunchy it is.

I remember making those paper beads too! Your quilt does resemble them. You did a beautiful job with it. Thanks for linking with TGIFF!

The quilt is beautiful! I love the serpentine stitching. It really crinkles the quilt to be soft and cuddly. I'm tempted to try the QCR after seeing your quilt.
This is a beautiful quilt. I like how you pieced your binding while matching up a piece of the mint green binding with the mint green strip on the backside.
