My First Conference...

To the NAQG
First and foremost I must say thank you to all of the teachers, attendees and the host
(Shelly Krzyzewski) for such an amazing conference. This year is my second year as a member
and my first year at the conference. All of my expectations were exceeded.
My quilling started with a brief tv spot on Martha Stewart. It was through a beginners kit

that I started to fall in love. So I began to order large amounts of
paper because, for like many, the supplies just aren’t available
locally. After about 8 years a friend of mine encouraged me to
research the existence of a guild. When the NAQG popped up
in the Internet search I knew membership was a must. Soon I
discovered the NAQGCON. I began to wonder what it would be
like to be amongst many paper loving individuals. The questions
just started popping into my head. What am I missing out on?
What do other people make with their finely fashioned quills?
Are there things in the quilling world that I am missing out on that
I have no idea about?
When the announcement of the NAQGCON 2013 came out I
knew that my questions could be answered. After planning the
travel details over a couple of months my trip to South Bend, IN
was in front of me. My feelings of lonely quilling were gone. I
was now with others that created with paper, tools, and glue. With each class I learned more
details to encourage growth. Even the open socialization time were opportunities to listen and
observe techniques and use of tools that had never crossed my mind. It is hands on learning at
its finest. Although I have been quilling for a number of years the information that I have learned
from this conference really will change my quilling forever. Seeing the
fine work of other members really showed me that the passion of this
art is out there.
There are two important parts of the conference that can not be
achieved anywhere else but at the conference: the skilled people that
you meet and the information that they share that is not found in books
or websites. I had the priceless opportunities of sitting near Quillers
that openly share their techniques and words of wisdom. Friendships
blossom at the conference. The value of the event is priceless.
If you have contemplated going to a conference but had doubts,
realize that you are only denying yourself amazing opportunities.
The attendees of the conference are a wealth of knowledge. My first
NAQGCON has been incredible and looking forward for many more conferences to come.

Flowers of the Floral Tribute

#25 submitted by GERALDINE GOWER (PA) – Bluebells

Geraldine submitted a divided stem of Bluebells to add to the arrangement. Her instructions were brief so I made a
sample in order to provide more instruction.

(PROOFREADER NOTE: The photos show Geraldine’s two Bluebell stems, made from floral wires with strips of green
that are tightly wrapped/spiraled around the wires; run a toothpick of glue under and along the strip edge as you overlap
and wind, attaching additional green strip lengths as needed.)

Helen’s version below has stems made from Spills (T-49). [The method used is optional.] Helen also refers to the NAQG
official shape chart names and numbers.)

• Spills – 1½ inch squares of green are needed for the main stem. The top square is to be rolled tightly. Others fit around

each other at the bottoms, one at a time, end-to-end and glued at the bottom of each to the next one below, to measure
10” (25.5 cm) in length. As the stem is rolled and glued it will get a little larger at the bottom.

• Make a shorter stem (same method as above) that measures 5” (12.5 cm) in length. Slightly curve the tops of each
stem and position them in opposite directions. Glue the tapered bottom end of the shorter stem to the side of the longer
stem, about 1/3 of the distance down from the top. Finish by wrapping one of the green squares around the joint on
the main stem, gluing it overlapped at the back to strengthen the joining.

• Bluebells on the main stem: all flowers are made with 1/8” wide (3 mm) blue strips.
• Use 12” (30.5 cm) long strips to roll five marquises (LC-9), leaving a 1/2” (1.3 cm) long “tail” on the end of each one, to

be attached by the “tail” onto the stem later. Reshape each marquise into a heart shape (LC-20) and set aside.

• Use 10” (25.5 cm) long strips to roll three loose coils (LC-6) with no “tail” for the smaller flowers at the top, forming each
into an egg shape (LC-19). Cut three blue strips 2” (5 cm) long and cut the ends of each at an angle. Curve each length
slightly inwards and glue the bottom of one egg shape into the center of each and set aside.

• Bluebells on the short stem: Make three, using the same strip lengths as above, plus two egg shapes the same as

• Attach the individual Bluebell “tails” to the main stem, spacing each Bluebell appropriately and beginning with the
largest ones at the bottom and working upwards. Glue the smaller egg shaped coils at the top. Repeat for the shorter
stem that is curved in the opposite direction.

• Cut in half lengthwise several 4” (10 cm) long wispy, grass blades and glue intermittently along the stem on both sides
(refer to photo).

• Use strips 34” (86.5 cm) long to make three 4” (10 cm) long Wheatears (T-41). Glue two onto one side of the stem
and one on the other side. To make a bouquet of them, repeat the steps above. Add other kinds of quilled, handmade
flowers, if desired.

Flowers of the Floral Tribute by Helen Pierce

#26 submitted by HELEN HORN (PA) – Yellow Daisies

Helen submitted two daisies with a bud, on wrapped floral tape stems, for the Floral Tribute. These
are her instructions that accompanied them:

Construction of one Yellow Daisy: (make two)
One 4 inch (10.16 cm) long Yellow quilling strip - 1/8 inch wide (3 mm)
One 4 inch (10.16 cm) long Orange quilling strip - 1/4 inch wide (6 mm)
One 7 inch (17.78 cm) long Yellow quilling strip - 5/8 inch wide (16 mm)
Glue the 4 inch Yellow strip to the 4 inch Orange strip and the 7 inch Yellow strip, all together, end-to
end, into a single strip.

Fringe with scissors to make a daisy petal look. Trim the longer Yellow outer tips pointed like a
picket fence. Roll up the strip starting from the narrow Yellow to the wide Yellow and glue the end.

Make the back of the Daisy: (one for each Daisy)
One Green 23 inch (58.5 cm) long quilling strip, 1/8 inch wide (3 mm). Roll tight a grape roll and
glue the end. Shape the grape roll into a dome and glue the back of the Daisy onto the domed
grape roll.

One Yellow 2-1/2 inch (6.5 cm) long strip, 3/8 inch wide (10 mm). Cut narrow petals and trim the
petal tips like a picket fence.

Back of the Bud:
One Green 8 inch (20.5 cm) long strip, 1/8 inch wide (3 mm). Make another tight grape roll and
shape into a dome. Glue the Bud just inside the domed grape roll. Place a little glue on the end of
the wire and put the wire through the grape roll hole and the flower. Wrap the wire with green florist

Cut them out of 3/8 inch wide (10 mm) green paper. (Refer to photos on page 18)

Rabble of Butterflies

Each year the 14 members of the Quirky Quillers’ Guild collaborate

to create a project. This year, 2013, has brought forth a “Rabble

of Butterflies”. Butterflies (too many to count) ranging from 3” to

smaller than the end of your pinky finger fill the 16” x 20” frame. This

project piece will be included in our annual display at the Lois Hole

Library for the summer months.

All things Paper

Hi everyone, I’m Ann Martin from Delaware. I’ve been a NAQG member for about ten years and
absolutely love quilling. I also love all things paper to the point that I even blog about it! If you
happen to be online, is where I share the latest in the world of paper art and craft.
In June, my new book All Things Paper: 20 Unique Projects from Leading Paper Crafters, Artists,
and Designers was released by Tuttle Publishing. Inspired by the tutorials I post on the blog, the
book contains brand new ideas for stylish home decor, fashion accessories, correspondence, and
jewelry. Some of the projects are quite simple, while others will appeal to ambitious crafters who are
interested in learning new skills, such as screen printing, bookbinding, paper cutting, box making,
and even stitching on and crocheting with paper! Of the twenty projects, six are either entirely quilled
or feature elements of quilling. All have detailed instructions and step-by-step photos. As a sampling,
you’ll find Silhouette Portrait Art, Everyday Tote Bag, Jungle Bead Necklace (by NAQG member Licia
Politis), Perfect Journey Journal, Phone Book Letter Holder, and Citrus Slice Coasters. It’s available
wherever books are sold.
