Treasure Box

I'm beading my Madonna quilt, still not quite sure what the final product is going to look like, but I'm moving ahead on pure faith. I've attached the surface of the quilt to a piece of flannel, and I'm beading through both layers, adding beads to the original beaded bodice, and to the New York Beauty sections I added. I've designated a space for the Madonna image, but I haven't chosen one yet. Here is a look at how I "organize" my supplies. Everything I'm using goes into a box, and I pull things out as I use them.

I found these cute little bottles to hold beads at the thrift store yesterday. You can't tell their size, but they're about 3" tall.

And here's a glimpse at what I'm doing. I'm making it up as I go along, which is the way I like to work best. --Barbara

On Will's piece I attached and quilted at the same time and I actually liked that idea. I have been looking at the vendors for Madonna trinkets but nothing yet.
