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

This is the most gorgeous project I've ever seen. This it's what I want to do, where I'm not working on a card or in a book. You are wonderfully talented. I lwant to attempt to make this for my granddaughter. Where would I start. Would you tell me how these beautiful letters and flowers are made and let me know what I need too begin. My email address:cole4pack@yahoo.com my name is Diane Cole I live in Cross Lanes WV. Also I want to see your other project. Thank you!!

Hi dcolepack, thanks so much for your kind words! There are many things about the process, so here are more sources of what I've made. I go into more detail for the Jade project on my blog post here: http://paperzen.blogspot.ca/2010/01/quilled-jade.html I have instructions on how to make the flowers here: http://www.craftsy.com/project/view/quilling-flowers/42708 I have also just authored a quilling book! In there I show my quilling techniques: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1454707844/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1454707844&linkCode=as2&tag=crafting0d2-20 To see more of my work, I post regularly on my blog here: http://paperzen.blogspot.ca/ I do hope you'll give quilling a try!

Thanks so much Carol. Thinking of her helped me get through all the long process and made it all worth it.

It really is beautiful. I have done a little bit of quilling but not to this extent. I want to make one.

Hi Deidre, I do hope you'll continue practicing quilling. I only made this project after making many small ones first. Do give it a try!
