Quilled Geometric Tiles

Quilled Geometric Tiles.

I know, it’s been ages since my last post! 😀 This does not mean I stayed away from quilling, I actually have quite a few projects to share with you, but I just find it hard to get back on track after my break from blogging. Being a guest designer for the Indian Quilling Challenge Blog was just the thing I needed to regroup myself, so here is the project I prepared for the current challenge: quilled geometric tiles in the style of Gunjan Aylawadi

You can basically create any quilling project with geometric shapes. I have been a fan of Gunjan’s work for a long time and she inspired me to try and create a pattern and fill it with spirals made with rolled paper strips. Since this was my first try and I had no idea how time consuming it would get, I decided to start with a small tile and a simple design. I used 160gsm paper hand cut into 5mm wide paper strips and a toothpick to roll them into spirals.

Each tile measures 10cm * 15cm and it took me around 10 hours to make both of them. They don’t look quite as neat as I would have liked, I still have to figure out a few things and keep practicing, but I can say that overall I am pleased.

      Thank you so much, Molly! I am glad you like the tiles! Yes, a lot of twisting was involved and it took me some time to get the hang of it in order to have all my swirls look the same. I will definitely make more of these!
