This was part of my display at a show in 2005. I wanted to use it in my book but the editors selected other projects for the wedding-scape section. Everything I quill is original so I have different ways for getting inspiration for a new quilled project. This is one way I become inspired-- with pictures.
I found this picture of a white wedding hat and it was my inspiration for the framed table piece. The big rose is what caught my eye.
This was the finished piece. I printed the text on vellum and slipped in the frame so it could be removed.
I used 3/8" wide crimped white paper strips for the hat. Tiny pearls were glued the the centers of 1/8" punched and shaped flowers. The flowers were used to cover the top of the hat after three roses, four fringed flowers and tendrils were applied. A long spiral strip was glued under the hat brim and on the top-front, and a small satin ribbon bow was added.
Use pictures for inspiration when needing a pattern for free-form quilling.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a fun and crafty week!
