Bead It Forward

For the past few years, Jeanette Shanigan has been collecting and sewing together beaded squares into quilts.  These quilts are then donated to Bead Artists against Breast Cancer for their annual auction.  You can check out previous squares and find the information for how to contribute to this project here.  This year, the theme is hearts.  Several members of the EBW team are trying to get enough squares together for an entire EBW quilt.  

Here, at long last, is my contribution:

1) Asymmetrical heart in peyote

2) my first foray into the world of herringbone!  A very simple heart pattern, but I like how it turned out. 

3) Two-drop peyote with a freeform heart attached to the top.

4) Regular peyote black background with two red hearts attached to the top.

And here they all are together!  Which is YOUR favorite?  I'm torn between the asymmetrical heart and the herringbone heart.

Oooh, the asymmetrical heart is gorgeous! That's my favorite, though I like them all.

They're great. I managed to get one done and you made four! I like the asymmetrical heart the best.

I love them all. I love them all.

I have mine done too. Need to get them on the pellon, get pictures, and mail them off. I got 5 of them done. Not my own design though. With so much going on, I just used Freda of Fancy Dance Creations patterns. I had to be creative though since I didn't have the colors she wanted and was at the hospital so couldn't get them.
