The North American Quilling Guild is having their annual conference on April 30 & May 1. If you’re in the area, stop by to see some amazing quilled artwork! There are many talented quillers that attend – my work looks so simple in comparison to some of the elaborate pieces that are displayed. It’s a wonderful conference to see if you want to be inspired!! I’m planning to teach and demo miniature treasure boxes or maybe the little basket.
The conference is in Long Island, New York…by the ocean! Kay Shockley, the co-ordinator of the conference, told me on the phone that they quilled a bunch of sea life using my “Under the Sea” kit as part of the conference decor. I’m excited to see the results!
If you want to see how a child views the “Under the Sea” kit, then enjoy this interpretation by my youngest daughter (7-years old).
She was sick for a whole week in December. So this is what we did together at home to pass the time. The overall size is about 5-inches x 7-inches.
We used 1/4-inch wide quilling paper. The wider width is much easier for kids to roll! She didn’t want to read my instructions or use my suggested lengths/circle sizes (kids are so smart!). Instead, she just used the front cover picture and eye-balled the size coils she wanted. It turned out great!
“Nemo needs to have his own anemone!”
She scolded me for not putting that in the kit!
Post a comment and let me know what your kids like to quill!
