Does the term quilling ring a bell? You might have hazy recollections from the 1970s of colorful flower and butterfly designs composed of coiled paper strips. Or perhaps you remember cutting up a sheet of construction paper, rolling the pieces one by one on a pencil or toothpick, and pinching them into various shapes as a school art project. This paper craft fell out of favor for a few decades, but I’m happy to report that there is something of a quiet revolution going on in the quilling world. The style of quilled designs has changed significantly in the past decade and these developments are tremendously exciting. Thankfully, art isn’t static—how dull that would be! I often see images on Instagram that barely resemble classic quilling that was popular at the end of the last century.
