What was your inspiration?
This design came about as a result of "playing around" with tatting, and the title "Quadrille" means a type of dance.
What are you most proud of?
All the design elements fit together, and it's completed in one pass.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
You need to know how to tat rings, chains, joins, and lock joins. If you have not tatted with beads or 2 shuttles before, this is a good small project to practice those techniques.
