Quilled E Monogram

I’ve just discovered Moxie Fab World through a reader’s post of an intricately quilled heart, by Sweet Spot Cards. MFW have weekly challenges in their side bar, and I was pleased to find the right stuff in my stash for their “Pretty Pastels Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World“, shown below:

So I made a monogram for a friend who is turning 40 and requested a no gift policy – well, I’ll still be able to say “I didn’t buy anything.” I wanted to show the flowers bursting forth in different stages of bloom. The “moat” which corrals the quilled flowers ends up hiding the quilled base from most angles; tilting the blossoms on their sides doesn’t hurt either. I designed each flower pattern and cut them digitally on the Silhouette.

    Amazing work !the flowers are stunning.
    I want to try something like that, but I m considering to make the letter surrounded by flowers. I wish I could have your talent to make them so alive.

      Hi Miguel, thanks for your kind words. Surrounding the letter with the flowers is certainly an option I was tempted with too. I like the idea of the flowers peeking from behind it. I’d love to see your finished masterpiece. It just takes a bit of practice to make the petals curl, but really it’s just like curling ribbon. Happy quilling! Cecelia
