Quilled Monogram

I was thrilled to come across Kara Henry's tutorial about quilling a beautiful Yulia Brodskaya-inspired letter. The graceful scrolls add so much interest to the stately H. Kara, of the blog Craftastical, captures the hallmarks of Yulia's fabulous designs... precise, square corners and lovely swirls of color.The excellent tutorial takes you step-by-step through the quilling process with helpful tips and photos. If you decide to give a monogram project a try, I hope you'll send me a picture of your finished masterpiece - I just might feature it here on all things paper!

Love it. I just bought myself a mothers day gift the other day. I ordered a beginners quilling kit and can't wait to get it and start trying some of these things out.

So glad you all liked it as much as I did.

Ann, that's nice! Starting with a kit is a great way to give quilling a try.

Beautiful work! I never think of quilling as having right angles.

I have been recently working on letters, based on your Raphael Art mentions. This is a MUCH easier way to go about it, then what I was doing. Thanks very much for sharing this!
