Quilled Fall Layout
I have wanted to make one of these mums since I saw them in a quilling book. Fall seemed like the perfect time to create a layout around them. Of course, the book said to curl every petal individually but I didn't have 3 hours to spare, so I just curled some. The gold flowers are husked - a new quilling technique for my students. The border is a swirl, another new technique. The cat tails are everyones favorite. I learned the method when I was a child at the fair. I was recently reminded of it in a book and learned it was called bulleting.
These are the mums my students made. I think they surpased the teacher!
