This project was inspired by the new Starman CzechMates QuadraTile two-hole bead. The project is worked in an adaptation of two-drop Ndebele stitch with the QuadraTiles added as you stitch the rows. It gets its name from the way the QuadraTiles dance across the bracelets    surface with military precision. The term ‘quadrille’ came to exist in the 17th century, within military parades, in which four horsemen and their mounts performed special square-shaped formations or figures. This performance became very popular, which led people to perform a quadrille without horses. By the 18th century the quadrille evolved more and more in an intricate dance, with its foundation in dances like cotillions. It was introduced to the Duke of Devonshire and made fashionable by 1813. In the following years it was taught to the   upper classes, and is considered a precursor to traditional square dancing.
