Quilling Paper Coneflowers

You never know where you’re going to find inspiration for your quilling. The idea for this post came from a recent issue of Better Homes & Gardens magazine. As soon as I saw the bright, open blooms on the cover, I knew I had to figure how to quill them. So I set to work, and after some time experimenting, I can share them with you today. This week, I’m making quilling paper coneflowers. This post contains affiliate links. If you click…

The Dot

True story. When I was very young, I took classes at our local art museum. Every weekend, my mom would drive me into the city (which seemed like a really big deal at the time) and I would excitedly play with paints, charcoal, and paper.

All this cloud stuff got…
