Quilled Letter H Monogram
This scarlet beauty was made just after I’d received a new quilling book that went into great detail on quilled spirals. I made the entire thing from spirals and I just love the finished product. It’s made with 1/4″ strips throughout, a black outline on a white background. I used a deep burgundy for the spirals towards the bottom of the H and as I worked upwards, used lighter paper. Once I hit the midway point, I used a mixture of all four of the reds. It’s really striking and I think my favorite thing about this monogram is the way it shines. The paper from Quilled Creations is thick and luxurious and the edges glisten. I think that’s what takes it from pretty to gorgeous.
This image really doesn’t do this piece justice. In the mat and frame it is probably one of the MOST stunning monograms I’ve ever made. Quite fittingly, I gifted it to my mother whose last name is Hunt. I made her another H earlier in the fall using my old techniques, but this one was “the” one. Plus, my new technique produces amazing results every time.
One of these days I will make a tutorial on the multi-strip spirals so you can all see how easy they are to whip up. Even though this was a “simple” design, it still took a few hours from start to finish with about 1/2 that time being spent making the outline of the letter, and 1/4 being spent fussing with positioning of the interior quills.
I hope that you enjoy this monogram as much as me and my mother do!
