Eha, Nancy – Beaded Mandala


Students bring from home

  • 12-inches by 12-inches blending tone on tone color of quilters’ weight cotton fabric. No batiks. Avoid dark value fabric and large or small repetitive pattern fabric 
  • Cut the “batting layer” (light colored flannel or thin cotton batting) 2-inches longer and wider than the fabric, 14-inches by 14-inches. Center the fabric on the “batting” for basting so that you have 1 extra inch of “batting” on all sides. Hand baste the two layers together, without a quilt backing.  Baste in an approximate 3-inch grid.
  • Fabric and batting basted together as above
  • A few straight pins
  • Small sharp scissors or embroidery scissors
  • Paper scissors
  • 6, 7, or 8-inch embroidery hoop
  • Glasses if needed for handwork
