Sample text

If it is a tall stack, pull tight, holding the anchor bead, and knot on the back before going on to the next stack. If you want to change the position of the stack just slightly, you can do so by coming back up through the whole stack, going through the anchor bead, and going back down to the fabric; move the needle over to reposition the stack before reentering the fabric. Making stacks is a good way to sew on sequins, heishi, or roundels. I frequently use a #15 seed bead for the anchor bead if I do not wish to cover too much of the bead underneath.

If you are not using a line or border printed on the fabric, it is easier to keep the lines straight if you draw chalk lines or baste a line of thread to delineate where the edges of the border are. 3. Continue the line, but rotate the direction 90° for the next square, and so on. To add depth to this illusion, you could use slightly darker beads at the ends of the rows where a square appears to go under the previous square. 3: Basic Stitches 39 WANDERING PATH The wandering path stitch can be used many ways, depending on what you wish to accomplish.

In this case, the multiple small stacks form the anchor bead. If you are securing a thick or large round bead, it is a good idea to use seed beads on each side of the bead for the return. This covers the thread up to the bead and down from the bead to the fabric, rather than drawing the fabric up to the level of the hole in the bead. Another way to anchor a large bead is to place it at an angle to the quilt top, adding enough beads to cover the thread.
