UFO Sunday's

I'm linking up with Leah Day for UFO's Sunday's.I got my fabric for my Greek Cross Quilt cut and ready to piece. I have 19 completed blocks, so I need at least 6 more, although I may go with an extra row, bringing it up to needing 11 more. I bought 1 more yard of Peacock Kona. I am cutting it really close, but I think I have just enough this time:)

I did manage to complete a little Beaded Lace Medallion UFO I had laying around!

I had it on my coffee table for about a month half finished.  Leah's bracelet post last week was just what I needed to get it done! Probably a good thing before it got reduced to a pile of beads!I found it while cruising Pinterest. You can find the instructions HERE.

I will admit I haven't beaded much. I used the bead string suggested except the weight was different. It's what I could find at Hobby Lobby. She suggests OO Nymo thread, I used D Nymo thread. It kind of looks like dental floss. Mine turned out a little flimsy.

I ran my extra thread tail back through the main outer beads which helped stiffen it some. I am thinking of using a thin sheer ribbon, or some braided DMC floss to use for the necklace part. Any suggestions???


  1. I think it would be cool to do a braided floss with any extra beads you might have left worked in somewhere, nicely done btw!

  2. You are getting lots done! Can't wait to see the Greek Cross Quilt and I love your medallion. Sheer ribbon would be perfect for the necklace. Be sure to show us what you decide! ~Jeanne

  3. Your Greek Cross Quilt will be beautiful I am sure. I'll be following your progress. And the beads you used in the medallion are a beautiful color. However you decide to finish it will be pretty. I think a beautiful chocolate brown braiding would be stunning. Love your work,

  4. If you know how to knit or crochet you could string the seed beads on that super thin cotton yarn and knit or crochet a simple necklace. I used knit and crochet in beads all the time and kind of miss it. Your medallion could also make a nice Christmas ornament too!

  5. I love the greek cross. I enrolled for the craftsy block of month in August. But haven't tried a single block yet. Can't wait to see your quilt.

    Your medallion looks great. A 1/4 inch ribbon would make a great finish. good luck!

  6. Oh my you do such beautiful work and so many different things. I would love to follow you and for you to join me at www.sewcraftykathy.blogspot.com
