Sugar Skull paper quilling complete!

I’m really  becoming addicted to this paper quilling. I had been wanting to work up to making a sugar skull. I have a curio cabinet full of sugar skull items and this will go perfect. Here are some photos from beginning to finally in its shadow box and all done. I’d love to get some feedback from you. What do you think?

Quilling the Letter A

Beginning a project with letters now. Here is the progression and completion (I think) of the first letter, letter A.


Finished for now….may add more once I finish the remaining letters in the design.



Quilling Seahorse Project

I’m absolutely in LOVE with Opal, my quilling seahorse project. This is a project I designed and completed myself. Still in the process of self-teaching the art of paper quilling. This one took me about 8 hours from start to finish. It’s 5 x7 in size and now in a shadowbox hanging at my work.


Illusion Quilt – UPDATED

UPDATE 1/26/18
Just received notice from Judi that my quilt is quilted and ready to return. I can’t wait to feel it when it gets home. LOVE it!!!!


So super excited. Finished my first Illusion quilt top. I’ve sent it off to be quilted since I cannot quilt anything this large on my home machine. Judi Madsen will be quilting it for me. I can’t wait to get it back and bind it. I made a little pillow from the left over material, just to match for an accent.


Quilling Name Project

It’s been a while since I’ve made a post. My apologies. I’ve had a lot going on in life. I’ve decided to teach myself quilling. If you have never heard of it you should check it out. It’s all projects made of only paper. I’ve seen some that are absolutely breathtaking. While I still have a ways to go, I’m enjoying the journey so far. It’s a process, sometimes very tedious, but the end result has been worth it.


3D Christmas Card

Wow I have been super lax on my blog postings. So much going on this time of year and had pneumonia to boot. Any who…I decided to try my hand at 3D Christmas cards today. This is what I accomplished. Super cute and simple. Easy to make. I made mine 3.5″ x 5″, single sided, non-opening with 3D ornament and hand drawn accents.


Hot Bowl Potholders

Fantastic gift ideas for those hard-to-buy for individuals. Great for teachers, bus drivers, co-workers, secret Santa gifts, etc. Add a bowl and a can of soup and voila….instant gift set. I can make these in any color combination or decor motif, as long as I can locate the fabric. Contact me today to place your order.
