Cupcake Art Quilt, Done!

I spent the afternoon yesterday doing my first beading ever. OMG! It was horrid...but can you dig it? It's amazing! Did I mention I will not disclose the amount of time it took to put that little sprinkling of beads on there? No, I will not, LOL! Oh, my cupcake quilt looks like a piece of candy. I love it! But now it must go to its new home. Where a very patient swapper will enjoy it.
It really is square, It looks wonky (This is a term Joanna taught me, thankyouverymuch... she is a REAL quilter so she know all the technical terms, LOL!), but that's only because my photography skills are not very good (how about that for political correctness?). This is the real color, it is kind of pale, not pastel colors, just pale yellows and greens, and shades of pink. All flannel, even the sleeve is flannel... well she might like it well enough to hang it, you never know! See? It's square...but the color is off, duh! I tell you, I don't see Time Life Books calling me anytime soon, LOL!
Anyway, I just wanted to share my accomplishment, and show you my awesome beading work. I'm so fancy, LOL! My Cupcake Art Quilt is DONE! Now I have to get to work, bummer! =(
OOps, I forgot to mention that the cupcake is an original design by Joanna, she has four different ones, one just sweeter than the next. When I saw them hanging in her kitchen I just knew I wanted one for my swap quilt and she was generous enough to allow me to use her original pattern. Thanks Joanna, I could not have made this cutie without your cupcake! B=)

Super job, Brenda!

Did you piece the border pieces? If you did that then you'll have absolutely NO problems with the siggy squares. I promise!
