All over blogland lately I am seeing the chandelier blocks
On point they look like a beaded strand.

I have seen different sizes mentioned as well
Decided to see for myself what size i like
On the left i did a 5 inch center with 2.5 small beads

On the right i did 3.5 center with 2 inch beads

I think i like the smaller version
So i cut up a few scraps 

Once i get some background fabric i will sew them as leaders and enders for another quilt top

While i was cutting i decided to grab some blues for my star border since i depleted the stash sewing the blocks the other day

Dunkin supervised
Isnt he the cutest?

Looks lovely. I think you may need more blues.

Great minds and all that; I have been pining to begin a chandelier/bead one too..I also like the looks of that smaller version...I copied down the pattern from somewhere and now i cannot find where i put it--typical
BUT, 1st things 1st--finish the use all the scraps challenge I've set myself..still stringing along ("I'm just stringing along with the scraps...")...;)))
hugs, Julierose
