Yet another quilling twist!

Ever since I learned the 'Royal Flower' technique for twisting the ends of husking loops, I've been experimenting with 'twisting' all sorts of quilled shapes!

Yesterday, I thought to myself: "What would happen if I add some twists inside a simple teardrop or closed loose coil?" ... and here's the result:
I just made the coils for these shapes in the usual way, but then captured some inner parts of each coil with a slotted tool and gave them a slight twist. It makes an interesting pattern, I think! The silver 'fleur de lys' shape was made by twisting the outside loops of a 'three-pronged' husking.

So I took this little 'random motif' and added it to a birthday card. My experimental quillings never go to waste LOL!!


  1. Those look great. Your experiment paid off with excellent results

  2. You are so creative! I have seen some quilling that looks like this, so now you've shown me an easy way to capture the look! Hugs, antonella :-)

  3. Love the way they turned out,it really puts a nice twist to things,lol!!
