Christmas- Quilling-Felligree-Flower-Christmas Poinsettia
Quilled Christmas decorations and quilled table decor adds to the levity of Christmas, so in the spirit of the occassion, I thought I must post a tutorial with something unique and these are the results of my efforts. Filigree petaled Christmas poinsettias. I think they look rather nice.
I have used beehive technique, which I have fallen in love with and for which I never fail to mentally thank Susan of susanquilling.
I was a bit bored with the beehive being encircled , like the leaf above, all the time. I thought this did not allow the delicate lace like look to be enhanced, so I was determined to devise a method to retain the filigree outline and by gad, I did it. Of course it needs a bit of gluing to retain the shape.
Tutorial is posted here.
