Beads quilt block

August 29, 1933-Today's quilt pattern is entitled Beads. "Don't let the modernistic touch in this quilt pattern fool you" wrote Nancy Cabot in her Chicago Tribune column. She claimed the design to be from the early days of Texas.

The Beads quilt block has a very planned color scheme. The four beads in the corners and the four beads in the center are to be of a plain dark fabric. Between each of the center beads, the bead is to be a lighter plain fabric. The remaining eight beads are to be made of coordinating prints.

There are two very interesting quilts made using this Beads pattern here and here.
