Alli Bartkowski is the most passionate quiller I have ever met. I had seen this art & craft form over the years, but for some reason I never had the opportunity to give it a try. Alli’s booth at the most recent CHA show in California was filled to the brim with the most creative quilled creations I have ever seen. She literally uses the technique to sculpt and form anything she wants from traditional quilled motifs to 3-D people and cupcakes!
It was a thrill to sit down with her one on one while she patiently showed off the most basic techniques. I can see why this art form could be so addicting!
Ali taught me how to make a paper quilled heart you see in this post.
Just think of all of the other things you could do with this simple idea of curling thin strips of paper. I also leaped at the opportunity to purchase her signed book for beginners, as I know I have a lot to learn about this technique.
