Quilling Basics - Shapes

Here are most of the basic shapes used in quilling. The step-by-step instructions will help you to create each shape. Once you have mastered these, you will be able to create almost any quilled design!


Quilled Loose Circle
Roll a tight circle with your tool. Slip it off the tool and let the coil release and expand. Glue the end to the roll. This is the most common quilling shape. All of the other shapes first start off as a loose circle and then they are piched into their shape. The loose circle can be placed in the Circle Template Board and expanded into the preferred circle size. Having the exact size will help make perfectly proportioned quilled designs and uniform shaped.

Quilled Teardrop
Roll a loose circle. In one hand, hold the coil between your index finger and thumb. With your other hand, pinch one side of the circle to form a point.

Quilled Curved Teardrop
Make a teardrop. Take the pointed end and curve it in one direction.Use your fingernail or the side of the Needle Tool to do this.

Quilled Marquise
Roll a loose circle. Using both hands, hold the coil between your index fingers and thumbs. Pinch points at the opposite sides at the same time.

Quilled Curved Marquise
Make a marquise. Then curl or curve the pinched ends in the opposite direction. Use your fingernail or the side of the Needle Tool to do this.

Quilled Square/Diamond
Make a marquise. Then turn it ninety degrees and pinch two more points on the opposite sides. Each side should be about the same size forming a square.

Quilled Rectangle
Make a marquise. Then turn it slightly and pinch two more points on opposite sides. There should be two short sides and two long sides forming a rectangle.

Quilled Half Circle
Make a teardrop. Then pinch a second point close to the first point. The distance between the two pinched points will affect the height of the half circle.

Quilled Curved Half Circle
Make a half circle. Then curve the points toward each other.

Quilled Triangle
Make a teardrop. In one hand, hold the teardrop between your index finger and thumb. With the other hand, press the rounded end inward to form three points.
