Doorway Beads! A Quilt Pattern

Strings of doorway beads are bright, fun, and colorful!  They brighten a room and they’re so fun to walk through! As soon as we saw the V Block Ruler by Deb Tucker, we knew we could recreate the doorway beads effect in a quilt.

Before I go on about our latest quilt, I’d like to give Deb Tucker’s V Block ruler a quick shout-out.

The Fabric

If you’re curious about the beautiful fabric we used in our Doorway Beads quilt, it’s Lella Boutique’s Garden Variety by Moda. You’ll find all the good stuff: flowers, geometric shapes. and the occasional bumble bee – all in coordinating navy, yellow, green, coral, turquoise .

Doorway Beads is a fabulous way to use that Fat Quarter Stash you’ve been hoarding – I mean storing in your stash – just find a neutral coordinate for the side triangles that makes your collection pop.  We used Riley Blake’s Swiss Dots in Navy, what would you use for yours?

The dotted swiss fabric adds to the illusion of the beads swinging in the doorway.

Use those scraps!  The more variety the better. 

Why YOU Need to Make a Doorway Beads Quilt

There’s nothing we love more than a quilt that squares up and this quilt squared up beautifully! The trimming function on the ruler sets you up for squared-up success!

Also, there’s so much more you can do with this V Block Ruler! You can be sure more Doorway Beads quilts are in our future.
