Quilled White Maine – Home is Where the Heart Is

I’m an Instagram fanatic and sometimes when I spend a little too much time browsing all the amazing artwork of other quillers around the world, I get a little obsessed with new potential project ideas.

I love my home State of Maine and have used it as a subject on a couple of other occasions. I made a green Maine with rivers and lakes, and I made a letter Y monogram of Maine for the Yarmouth Historical Society.

Lately I’ve been in awe over an Australian woman’s work with flowers and thought I’d try out a few flowers for a change. I’m not a big flower quiller – I like them, but they’re not my cup of tea. But, hers were so beautiful that I just had to think of a project to incorporate them into.

This was the end result of that Instagram binge session – a quilled white Maine that I named “Home is Where the Heart Is.”

Construction

This project was way more time-consuming than I anticipated. Part of it was because just after I started it, my dog got sick and I spent a few night crying my eyes out with worry over him. That slowed things down significantly. After I calmed down from that I got to work on the flower fill which was, to say the least, slow-going. I felt like I was getting about one flower done a night, and finished it up in a burst on Sunday. I was really glad to place the last quill, that’s for sure!

The bulk of this project was made with 1/4″ strips from Quilled Creations. A few of the flowers were made with 1/8″. I used my new Silhouette cutting machine to cut the State of Maine out of 300lb watercolor paper which I glued down onto another sheet of 300lb watercolor paper, then outlined with three strips of white instead of my normal one which I would use for monograms.
