3: Basic Stitches 35 Back Stitch Use this stitch for making short, continuous lines of beads, straight or curved, either restating lines already in the fabric’s design or creating new ones. 1. Starting with a single thread, come up from the back of the fabric to where you want the first bead. 2. String 5 to 7 beads on your thread, depending on the size of the beads (5 #8 beads and up to 7 #11 beads). 3. Holding the thread taut, push the beads back to where you came up through the fabric and then push the needle down through to the back, just past the last bead (not too close to or too far from the starting point).

2. Pass down through the top of the second bead and pick up a bead. The direction you pass through the second bead is the only thing you change, but this pulls the bead parallel to the edge. 3. Continue by taking the next stitch a bead width from the center of the last bead. Go through, from back to front, and go down through the bead you just picked up. NOTE If you do not like the fact that the beads are parallel to each other but at an angle to the edge, you can pass through all the beads in that section of the edge at least one more time to reinforce and realign them.

Again, leave a little slack on the surface and bring the needle all the way to the back of the quilt. Bring the needle back to the front of the quilt and loop through the slack. 3. Pull the thread tight to form a double knot on the surface. Put the needle back into the batting and travel to the spot where you want to place your first bead. 32 Beading Artistry for Quilts NOTE Always try to go through all the layers to the back on each side of a large bead. This helps distribute the weight between the front and back when the quilt is hanging.
