A moment of madness

In a moment of madness (or – to be more truthful – a series of crazy afternoons), I quilled this:


What can I tell you about it? Well, I’ve used marbled paper, embossed paper, straight lines, open coils, tight coils, cones … plus a couple of little cylinders rolled from paper that I had first punched shapes out of. (Maybe I’ll write something about these later.)

As so often happens, I made it up as I went along. It was fun. I learned a lot. It’s probably quite insane. But never mind – it makes me smile.

    Very colourful and interesting. Looks like a good way of using some of those odd shapes that we all collect, waiting for the perfect design. I almost always make up designs as I go along, it is a lot of fun doing it that way.
