Small wonder then, that the stylized quilling of Florida's Melissa Van Hoose caught my eye. She features a lovely variety of quilled ampersands in her Etsy shop.
Melissa is a graphic designer who says she enjoys making homes look fun and interesting through quilled wall art.
I love Melissa's custom script monograms too... they look elegant and simple, but let me assure you it's not easy to quill so sparingly.
In fact, it's often more difficult to quill an "easy" design perfectly than a complex one because our eyes naturally want to seek out every little flaw.
Who knew rolled tight coils and straight strips would make such an appealing framed piece? They've never looked fresher!
