Quilled flower number three!

At yesterday's market, I only sold one card - and for once in my life I was pleased that business had been so slow! It means that instead of spending several more afternoons next week restocking my card display, I can devote some time to other quilling projects - and my floral competition card in particular!

Today, I'd like to share the third of my new flower designs that I've been making for this card. The basis for this one is four identical huskings, each one double-wound around pins using one purple and one white strip, which I had folded together in the centre before winding. My starting point for each husking was, in fact, a little orange scrolled heart which I placed 'astride' the first pin and then built the rest of the husking around it. I pinched the huskings to make them pointed, and deliberately squashed the heart scrolls a bit when I did so. I think the resulting orange 'stamens' look quite realistic - just waiting for a bee to arrive and collect some pollen!


  1. Such a lovely new design. The colors look good together.
