Quilled Fringed Flower Card

  • Posted on August 30, 2010 at 7:01 PM

Over at ArtEZan, I have some everyday quilled cards for sale as well. Here is one of them, a pink flower made by hand fringing the petals. This card would be lovely for a birthday, thank you, or even just to send to a friend to say “thinking of you”.

The girls’ quilling

  • Posted on August 24, 2010 at 8:59 PM

Back in June I gave the girls – aged 6 and 4 – their first quilling lesson. They had been on at me for ages to do it but I finally got to do it. It was great! They used a slotted tool to make a fish following a pattern and I am really proud of their efforts.

Sophie's Quilling Aged 4

It was interesting to see how differently they worked. Sophie (4) worked a lot tighter than Amy (6), thus producing a smaller fish.

One of the things I would like to do is children’s craft classes, including quilling. Do you think your children would be interested in quilling and craft classes?

Quilled Lily Card

When Yvette, who helped set up this site for me, had her birthday, I thought I would make her a card. Yvette is a very talented embroiderer and in particular, she does spectacular Mountmellick work. She is currently doing a stitch-a-long through her blog and when she posted her design for it, I was inspired by the lily. So I set about looking at some stitches and the design and working out what sort of shapes I would like to include. While embroidery stitches are a bit difficult to replicate with quilled paper, I was really pleased with the final result and the different shapes used.
