Quilling Flower Pattern Update

3 years ago I offered my open style quilling flower patterns. I’ve wanted to update this tutorial for quite some time and have finally been able to finish this project. What’s new? Double petals, stamens, larger and smaller flowers, 8 petal flowers, and a super easy-peasy guide for measuring each strip. For those who dislike reading manuals, there are more step-by-step photos to show each stage. The new quilling tutorial/pattern will still be $5. All 2012 purchasers will receive the new pattern free. Clients up to Dec 31, 2011 will be emailed a coupon code for a 50% discount.

I’ve had such positive response over my previous “heart full o flowers” that I chose to do it again, but bigger to show off all the flower types. I used 2 strips of 11″ Bazzil scrapbook paper because it’s thick – I prefer to have a stronger “fence” as I filled in the elements. Here are some stages as I went along. I started at the bottom and just nestled some next to one another, seeing what fit in terms of size, color, and style. Loose scrolls would be added after to fill in some blank areas too small for flowers. The final size is about 5″ x 6″.

My previous PDF pattern included 5 card designs to be used as backgrounds and 1 envelope. I’ve decided to offer these printables for free on my blog. Download here. Your feedback keeps me going – thank you!

    Hello Cecelia!!
    I just want to thank you for the updated version of your Quilled Flower Tutorial! I have used the first one I purchased from you in Jan. and now I am excited to take it to the next step. You really simplified such a beautiful new look for quilling. It was so easy! Thanks to your teaching! I’m experimenting even more now. So thank you!!! It was definitely worth the $5.00 on Etsy!!! :0)

    You do incredibly beautiful work! You inspire me. I have recently taken up cardmaking and just in the past few weeks…quilling. I am only 42 and permanently disabled. This takes my mind off the pain and the fact that I am inside the same 4 walls 24/7. I aspire to do work like yours (nowhere close I’m sure) one day. Keep inspiring us mere mortals! lol

      Hi Dee, I’m so happy to have inspired you to try quilling and that it helps in so many ways. I find it helps me when I can think about small things right in front of me too. I have stopped writing on this blog, but have continue on a new blog where I hope you’ll continue to learn as I go along: http://paperzen.blogspot.ca/
