Quill Monogram "H"

Hello Bloggers!

I had wanted to do this quill monogram "H" for quite sometime but I just wasn't ready.  It looked hard then I got bored with my card making and didn't want to do anything else so I thought it was time to try the letter.


I drew the "H" on grid paper then cut it out and traced it on the white card stock.  It's a little slanted.  You can find the tutorial here. My "H" was big.  It's 8 1/2" x 11". I got the frame from Big Lot.


My daughter wanted a pink one.  I wasn't too happy with the result.  I was trying to make the letter to fix in the box.

I was so happy I stumbled upon a blog recently that had a tutorial on making a square shadow box.  I played around a bit and  I made my shadow box 5 inches x 8 inches.  I'm hoping to share the tutorial soon.

Until then, happy quilling!

Helen

they turned out great. I remember what a hard time I had when I tried the monograms. Some letters are easier than others though.
Love the idea of the shadow box
