What advice would you give someone starting this project? Tackle it one letter at a time. Start with largest open areas and fill with the largest flowers first. Then fill in smaller spaces with smaller flowers and leaves as you go. http://craftingcreatures.blogspot.ca/2010/01/quilled-jade.html Although I don't have a tutorial showing how I quilled the letters, I do show how to make the flowers here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/59669115/quilling-flowers-pdf-pattern-tutorial

Hi snakmamm, I used a program called Adobe Illustrator to overlap the letters, then outlined them, and color laser printed them on card stock. Finally, I cut them out by hand. You can do a similar thing with black letters and overlap them by hand, then trace onto color card stock and cut them out by hand. Hope that helps. Cecelia
