Paper Cat Portrait of Bean

Paper Cat Portrait of Bean

I made three quilled cat portraits back in like 2016 or 2017 and I haven’t attempted one since. The style I used at the time was an artsy, scrolly, kind of whimsical one that incorporated scrollwork and coils and other quilled shapes. The end result…

Miniature Scrollwork Cat Ornament

Miniature Scrollwork Cat Ornament

I recently had a customer ask me to make a specialty item. I often entertain these requests because you just never know if they’re going to be a good idea or not. Sometimes I discover quickly that I’ll never attempt it again, and others, like…

Quilled Illinois State Redbird

Quilled Illinois State Redbird

This quilled Illinois State Redbird was a gift for a recent graduate. I’m not sure if the recipient loved it, but her mother definitely did. This wasn’t a really complex design, but pretty much everything looks beautiful filled in with elegant quilled scrollwork.

Paper Quilled Monograms 2021

Paper Quilled Monograms 2021

Instead of creating a separate post for every monogram I create in 2021 (and in future years) I will be adding images to this “Paper Quilled Monograms 2021” post over time. And, in 2022, I’ll start a new post. This way they are all in…

Quilled MOM Monogram | Monogram

I was rifling around my paper stash last week and stumbled upon a pack of paper that I had never really looked at once it arrived. To my surprise – and pleasure – I discovered that it wasn’t just patterned paper, but actual cardstock. I…

Quilled Letter S Monogram | Yellow & Gray

Quilled Letter S Monogram | Yellow & Gray

Even though I’m combining all my cats into a single yearly blog post, I’m keeping my monograms individual. I think it’s just because there seems to be more variety in the monograms than the cats. I’m hoping to do a lot of monograms this year…

The King | Quilled Lion 2.0

The King | Quilled Lion 2.0

I started Roaring Lion late December of 2016 and finished him early January 2017. At the time, I was on a creative binge and was pumping out large, elaborate quilled artwork as fast as my fingers could twirl paper. When the lion was done I…

Original Scrollwork Cats | 2021

Original Scrollwork Cats | 2021

Instead of creating a new post for every single cat I make this year, I plan instead to just update the original categorical post. So, for Original Scrollwork Cats | 2021, this will be the main “thread.” This will include all scrollwork Fat Cats, Memorial…
