I made this flower for Homyachok challenge #1, titled ‘Solo’. The rule is to create one beautiful quilled flower.
With a little help and encouragment from Aljona aka WhiteRacoon, I decided to enter the competition with a quilled red dahlia. I used 120g/sm paper, hand cut into 2mm paper strips. The petals were made using the husking technique and the center is a fringed quilled flower.
