The beaded buttonhole stitch is quite simple and deserves more exploration. I am quite comfortable with the buttonhole stitch so I dove right in and applied the beaded version to a seam on my crazy quilt, top photo. I also wanted to try something slightly different so I tried the wheel buttonhole stitch with beads. It will take some practice to get that one to be an even circle. I will definitely be doing some more exploring with this stitch.
Thanks to Sharon B at http://pintangle.com/ for the instructions.
