Sew Crafty Friday-Creating a Quilled Frame-Part 2

Sew Crafty
Shereen at Waiting for Him hosts Sew Crafty Friday.

Due to the drama of the past few days, I didn’t get to work on any of the projects that I was planning, but as promised I will share the pictures of my finished quilled project. (Just a note: These are some of the rescued pictures. Praising God for every minute!)

For the fringed sunflowers I glued a yellow 6” fringed strip of ¾” wide paper, and a black 1/8” strip.

Here are some of the quilled circles.  The board is used to let the quilled pieces relax and then I glue the ends and hold them with a pin.  Each quilled piece is made from 1/8” wide strips of various lengths depending on what size I want.  Some are loose quills and others are tight rolls.

Here are all the finished quilled pieces waiting to be shaped and assembled.

I use a piece of packing Styrofoam covered with wax paper to make my designs.  I use pins and toothpicks to help keep the pieces in place until the glue dries.

These are most of my finished pieces waiting for placement. After making the grapes, I realized that they were too big for the design, so I started over on them.

I used my design template that I had put on the wax paper covered foam core board and began assembly, again using pins to hold things in place.

After I was satisfied with the placement of the main pieces I began to glue everything to the mat.

When the main pieces were in place I added the green vines and the small details.

For this project I found this kitchen prayer and printed it out.

Here is a close up of the bottom.

The finished project.

I  am really happy with the finished project and may do this design again for my own kitchen.

    I've done a little bit of that for scrapbooking but nothing to that magnitude. Looks great!

    So glad things got resolved with your computer.

    ….absolutely gorgeous!

    Someone did one of these for us with our wedding invitation and it got misplaced. It didn't look nearly this pretty though.

    This is just lovely. Thank you so much for sharing. Is it as difficult as it looks to do quilling?
