Baubles n' Beads


Baubles ‘n Beads is comprised of 31 fabulous hand-dyes and Batiks.The combinations of color and textures have been carefully selected and arranged to create this colorful and festive wallhanging, perfect for every occasion.

Baubles n Beads is #7 in the “Whole Is Greater” series of designs by Cat Nix.  What is the ‘Whole is Greater’ series about? I proudly proclaim: I’m a fabri-holic.  I share the opinion of many quilters that, when it comes to fabric . . . more is definitely MORE!  The more fabrics I bring into in a quilt design, the happier I become!  Through the marriage of design and color, the viewer is invited to look beyond the beauty of the composition as a whole to explore the subtle nuances that lie within the quilt itself. The composition encompasses every patch, every stitch;  from center to edge.  Baubles n Beads is another stunning illustration of the “Whole” being “Greater than” the sum of its parts.

A quilt is not a quilt until it's quilted.  Many, many thanks Shawn Leighton for making “Baubles n Beads” look so good!
