I was partnered with Lynx2Lancer in the Common Grounds swap. She asked for a hummingbird and showed me a few designs that she liked. I did not want to directly copy them so I used parts from each and came up with my own spin on one. I have not been quilling long so it wasn’t too complicated.
Then of course if you do a bird you need flowers. So I looked through the flower quilling book I just got in and found the lilacs. I did a bunch up but wanted more than just purple. I found the other flowers next to put in the bottom, then added the star ones to the front since this is a deep box I used.

This is hours and hours of work done over two weeks. Quilling is a slow process but I enjoy it. It is very relaxing.
