Alli Bartkowski has done it again... created another beautiful book - Quilled Flowers: A Garden of 35 Paper Projects. Despite claiming no green thumb, Alli certainly has what it takes when it comes to designing paper interpretations of well-known flowers.
The book features 128 pages of perfectly photographed blooms, each of which is shown with a useful purpose. For example, there's a calla lily photo album, a daisy necklace pendant, framed sunflower, ranunculus hair comb, gerbera daisy pens, cherry blossoms card, and perhaps my favorite, a plumeria blossom choker.
The book is suitable for those who are brand new to quilling, as well as experienced quillers in need of fresh ideas. Alli covers all of the basics - tools and techniques - and each pattern includes helpful diagrams and templates. One feature I especially appreciate is an "actual size" drawing of the completed flower... this is a huge boon to new quillers who might not realize the true size of a quilled coil.
I was sent a copy of Quilled Flowers: A Garden of 35 Paper Projects from Lark Crafts for review purposes and the publisher has offered to send a copy to one person with a U.S. or Canada mailing address.
