37 hours now, and the king and queen are done, as well as their thrones, and the princess. She has 3 layers of hair, and it's wavy. She's pretty. Her tiara has 3 hearts on it, upside down, and her dress is all pearly from the pearled quilling strips, and she is holding two flowers!

Now onto the rug that is going to be 5 1/2 by 7 inches...

Sorry, do I have to register to that site or something? I saw your directions, Karon, thanks.

Hi Rachelle,
No, that is just where forumotion puts all the photo's for storage tis normal to show up that way. I just loaded a pic into a post okay so there doesn't seem to be a prob there, will have a look see at what is happening. Your lady seemed to go on okay and there is plenty of free space in our gallery so I will go check out the admin panel to see if they are doing any maintenance on the sites

Okay did some checking and all seems to be fine. The only thing I can think of is if the pic is over the 4mb size (should also be under 1280x1024 pixels) or if they were doing maintenance when you tried to upload. Try again anyways and see how you go

OH, ok, I get it.

Copy and paste URL on here.

Well, this is what it looks like so far! Still need rug, which is seemingly like will take me 10 hours in all Shocked. And, a flower pot. I may arrange them differently for the final pic once it's done.

It isn't going to be in the GALLERY till I have the finished pic.

Ah the Royal family! Great quilling. You are very talented.
Was it hard to bend the coil for the seated figures?

Awesome...soooo cool!!!!!! Very Happy

Looks fantastic Rachelle! Great Job, did you use lots of paper? Are you going to use anything for the eyes, nose, mouth?

Does anyone know what you would use to make the facial features? Googly eyes would look funny i think, then again they may look really good...hmmm...not really sure.

By the way Rachelle, how did you get the chairs to stand up like that? Are they supported by something?

Thank you. Yes, extremly hard to have them sitting...

It went like this. I started with one large coil, and tried to bend it down, only worked a tad bit. Then, I did another one to it, bending it more. Glued onto the throne. Then, I put paper halfway from both of the coils, and wrapped it around, trying to go down. Each time, I glued it, and then glued the inside after that. There were some "helper coils" to make it all work. VERY hard.

I did use lots of paper. Almost 3 whole packs of gold...And, the princess has 8 strips for her skirt, and 4 or 5 for her "bodice". And, the king and queen more since they are bigger....LOTS.

I wasn't planning to give them any facial features, since it looks often too "comical" for the look I'm goin for. But, I am open for suggestions.

Just a BUNCH of coils glued together- most of them just sitting flat. The king's arms has little coils standing up, in a triangle. If you look closely, you can tell. There are 4 sets of about a dozen coils to stand it up.

It was difficult to make the back of the chair fairly straight...there are 2 sets of coils for that, so that it will be nice and sturdy, after all they are 5 and a half inches tall. I ended up gluing it to their hair to keep it up.

PS: did you know that you can edit any of your replies? Right at the top right of it, so that you don't have to make a new post Very Happy. I just edited this stuff in.

Oh, and I just have to use these smilies: king queen .

Oh, also, though you can't see it, the queen has a bun Very Happy.

These are amazing Rachelle, You know I looked at these admiringly and what popped into my head was a jester. How cool all these things you can make just with a little imagination. You are a very lucky person to have so much creativity because many people who have quilled for years cannot do anything without a pattern!! I love them!! and the good thing with a setting such as this, you can add as much as you like to it

Kay, rug is 3/4 done. It's lookin awesome! I made some twirlys on it- 2 on each corner, and 4 skinny ones in the middle, you'll see! I kinda haven't been workin on it much lately, but...IT WILL GET DONE! It is magnificent. It is hard to keep it all straight...I did put a piece of paper under it, and used a pencil to make a straight line with a ruler, so that the rug will be straight. Most of the coils are the same size, but some of them I had to modify to go around the spirals. My, did it require much technique to do!

Really, this rug is taking me longer then I thought it would...10 hours so far, just on the rug!

So, Karon, what is this yarn post you speak of?

Jean did some quilling with feather yarn on the post Quilling with feathers by Jean. One of them she has used red and purple but I was thinking if you are using lots of red even red on red as just for 2 different effects. When I saw it I thought of the fringes of your rug and if it would give it a thread look maybe. Might be worth having a play with. She has been doing some exciting stuff. She even quilled with paper bark off a tree

I finally got more violet strips that I ordered on Thursday! Hopefully, I'll get the rug done in a week, so it can be done once and for all!

I FINISHED IT!

Check it out in the gallery.

EDIT: I can't belive this thread of mine has WAY more replies then all of the threads, as well as the views! I guess that's what happens when I stretch my topic for a month and a half.
