A Guide to Endangered Flora in Quilling

A brand new quilling book has just been released!

Stop by Custom Quilling to check it out.....



Colorful floral shapes inspired by endangered plant species will attract countless new fans to quilling, the decorative art also known as paper filigree.
This collection of unique projects includes endangered flowers such as the mountain-dwelling Peach Myrtle, the graceful Slipper Orchid, and the shy Snowdrop, as well as some beloved plants that are not endangered, including the Common Poppy, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Sunflower.

Having already published over 86 quilled floral designs, Helen Walter now presents quilling endangered plant species.
This should excite quillers and also to raise an awareness of our disappearing flora, whether the disappearance be caused by climate change, human activity, loss of habitat or natural disaster.
The projects are set into seven categories of endangerment: Prehistoric; Extinct; Extinct in the Wild; Critically Endangered; Endangered: Vulnerable; and Thriving.

The author, whose books have spread the joy of quilling to crafters around the world, presents 42 charming projects with full-color illustrations and step-by-step instructions.
