Not all contributions to the Bead and Button Bead-it-Forward Charity Bead Quilt are peyote (or gourd stitch) squares. This quilt - "Winging in from North Carolina" consists of squares by the Capital Area Beading Organization (CABO) in Raleigh, North Carolina. It was quilted by Stacy Werkeiser, associate Editor for Bead & Button magazine.
Some folks are combining beading with felting, sequins, applique, and other surface decoration techniques! Multiple submissions from some contributors show off their diverse talents!
