Friday Finish: Pop Beads
I had originally planned on posting a free tutorial on how to make the quilt block, after receiving several requests for the information. Then after the whole top was sewn together, I happened to notice a magazine in my local quilt shop with a very similar quilt on the cover. It turned out to be "Chain of Fools" by Jen Kingwell. At that point I was not familiar with Jen (which shows you just how long ago that was!), but still, even though quilt was totally based on Mary Hickey's quilt, it felt awkward to post the tutorial. So the quilt top languished in a pile for the next several years.
In spring I decided that it needed to be completed. My block construction is different from either Mary's or Jen's, so if there is any interest, I will post the tutorial.
Darby quilted it with one of my favorite designs.
