Valentine’s Day Quilling

I managed to make two Valentine’s Day quilled pieces in two very distinct and different techniques.  The first was using my cricut to cut out the word love. (Did I mention my wonderful hubby gave me one for Christmas?)  I did a double layer cut out and then quilled around the inner layer with a matching pink 1/8′ strip.  For the hearts, I just free handed cut and glued them on and then used the spiral technique to go around the edge of the hearts.  I wanted to experiment more with the spiral technique, so I did…

 This is the result of my experiment.  Lots and LOTS of spirals glued into place.  It is an 8×8′ piece and I admit the curves and maintaining the spiral consistency was a challenge.  It was a fun and challenging piece…

Doesn’t that look nice on the top of my desk?
