Have you been seeing some of those quilting designs that incorporate a strand of pearls? I think it adds a bit of elegance to your quilting project. Here is one wreath I designed with Art and Stitch and Intelliquilter.
The key in creating the pearls (whether you are doing on your domestic machine or using a computerized system) is going around each circle 1-1/2 times. (Thanks to Helen Baczynski for sharing this tip with the Intelliquilter goup.) Check out my video on how I did this in Art and Stitch.
