Quilled Black & White Maine
The subject that I have created more pieces of, outside the Scrollwork Cats, is the State of Maine. It’s only fitting since I am a born and bred Maine girl that really loves her state (at least three seasons of the year). I have always loved this Quilled Black & White Maine and only wish the images did it justice.
It’s funny that as much as I want one of these for myself, I only end up making them for others. Maybe 2020 is the year one of these gets put on the wall? Even though this was a wedding gift for a man marrying a woman who grew up in Maine, it’s still one of my all-time favorites.
This guy is 11″ x 14″ – one of the largest pieces that I tend to make. It was quite hefty when it was done because of the dense scrunch technique and a ton of glue.
There were three parts to making this. 1) Outlining the state with cardstock strips; 2) filling in the rivers and lakes with white cardstock strips; 3) and lastly backfilling the entire piece with my signature scrunch technique.
It looks so simple that you wouldn’t think it would take very long, but those scrunches fill sloooooowly.
