nouna piece of quilled lace or other fabric used as a trim. (North American)
a type of ornamental craftwork involving the shaping of paper, fabric, or glass into delicate pleats or folds.
It took a few minutes for the kids to get the hang of things, but once they did, there was no stopping them. I would surmise that my daughters appreciated this art form more than my son. But he did enjoy it all the same.
I don’t imagine quilling becoming a regular part of our crafting routine. However, this was a nice alternative to traditional mediums, and offered a new perspective on art. It was also a good practice in hand-eye coordination, as well as a study on paper-folding itself.
Now that we have the basics of quilling down and the kids have had some practice, perhaps we are ready to move on to a finished project.
Chime In!: Have you done any quilling? Which project would you recommend?
