Hi folks! When I’m planning a Quillspiration post I often go to my quilling boards on Pinterest and browse. When I see a few great projects of a similar theme, I choose that theme and search for more projects that go with it.
This time my eye was caught by some gorgeous quilled flowers. But I decided I cannot do a Quillspiration post just on quilled flowers, there would be waaaaay too many to choose from!! So I decided to do a series of Quillspiration posts with quilled flowers, starting with some gorgeous paper quilled iris flowers that caught my eye.
Since I am focusing on only paper quilled iris flowers, I am sharing designs from simple to complex, so if you are looking for inspiration for a project you can choose from a difficulty level that fits your project!
These pretty irises are made from large coils that are pressed flat and tightly shaped into the petals, I love the look! This art piece was made by Natalin_ka. Click here to view more photos of the project.
Here is a beautiful paper quilled iris in the more modern “on edge” style of quilling, by Cris Tan. Click here to view the photo on the facebook page, and have a browse through some of Cris’s other beautiful pieces of work!
I don’t usually put two pieces by the same artist in one Quillspiration post, but this one is too gorgeous not to share! PLUS it has step by step photos so if you want to attempt a piece as detailed as this you can get some hints from it. Click here to view all the photos of this stunning piece by Saphir.
I hope you enjoyed this roundup of paper quilled iris flowers! Have you ever quilled an iris? Which one of these is your favorite?
