Elizabeth Moad's new Christmas quilling book

Post by Philippa on 2010-09-18, 14:26

I've just received my copy of Elizabeth Moad's latest book, 'Christmas Quilling' which is an ideal companion to her excellent 'Thrilling Quilling' that was published a few years ago.

It's billed as "A great sourcebook full of festive greeting ideas", and I think it will be a brilliant source of inspiration to quillers at this time of year, with our preparations for Christmas already getting underway.

The book is a 64-page paperback packed with inspiring card-making projects, and has a good introductory section on 'basic techniques' for beginners, too. There are some great templates for interesting bauble shapes, trees and stockings; excellent tips for squishing coils into six-pointed holly leaves (something I've always found surprisingly tricky!); snowflake patterns; a fabulous method for creating fir tree branches and much, much more.

I got my copy from Amazon UK, but I'm not sure whether it's available on Amazon.com just yet. You can also order direct from Elizabeth using this link:

Highly recommended!

Thank you for the link Philippa. I just ordered it so in about two weeks, I can see it too. I am okay with the holly leaves if I make them really large but really find them finiky once I try to go smaller. A tip for this will really be great. I want to have a Christmas tree with lots of quilled snowflakes on it this year.

I'm going to have a good peak at it and then give it to my husband to put under the tree. I usually shop for myself as I know what I want more than he does and he doesn't like shopping at all. I've bought a few books recently that I will do this for along with some quilling paper strips. I'm planning my winter activities now since it usually is very snowy here and winter is my least favourite season. I like to hibernate.

That's so annoying when a book you want is out of stock. But one of the great things about Elizabeth's book is that most of the projects in it are quite quick to do - she acknowledges that all of us 'crafters' are under pressure at this time of year, so the emphasis is on 'speedy results'!
