Quilling Flowers Book Release

It's always a happy day when a new quilling book by talented pro-quiller Sena Runa is unveiled. In just one week's time Quilling Flowers will be available for purchase in North America. It can be pre-ordered from Amazon now... be the first on your block to own a copy!

Whether you are new to quilling or have years of experience, Sena's fresh designs with modern lines will entice you to get rolling. Each flower is worthy being framed or placed on a greeting card for someone special.

As I paged through an advance copy courtesy of GMC Publications, I was delighted to see so many beautiful spring flowers since they're in bloom here in Delaware at the moment - daffodils, tulips, pansies, and magnolias. You'll also find lots of summer favorites like sunflowers, hibiscus, and water lilies. Of course autumn and winter are represented too.

Sena created a template for each of the twenty projects and included the necessary strip colors, lengths and tools, many step-by-step photos along with written instructions, as well as introductory quilling information and how to create specialty shapes like waves and zigzags. Info about tools and materials is covered too.

I love the way Sena used the zigzag folding technique to represent the jagged edges of a carnation.

If Sena's name is new to you, enjoy this 2015 blog post in which I interviewed her. She had only been quilling about two plus years at that point, but already it was abundantly clear that she is a natural at designing. The modern, on-edge wall art she was creating even then for her Etsy shop was wow-worthy. By the way, if you are on Instagram, follow along with Sena as her feed is a joy to see.

  53. diannemu22@hotmail.com - Sena's work has inspired me to get my quilling things out of their storage container and start afresh. Haven't touched my art for years now, but I think it's time I got busy again. Her designs make my mind whirl with ideas and I would love to see her book to get even more ideas from. Such talent is always a joy to behold!
