A Hymn and a Homecoming

My friend requested this piece for her wedding anniversary because the hymn, “The Church’s One Foundation,” was sung at their wedding 8 years ago.

The request was for blues and browns, and I really liked that combination.  I used primarily 1/8″-width paper strips, some 1/16″-width, and 5/8″-width for the fringed flowers.  I think my favorite thing about this piece is not the quilling, but the blue lettering on beige paper—a surprisingly classic look, almost vintage-y.

There couldn’t have been a better day to blog about this quilled anniversary gift than on Valentine’s Day.  Especially because my friend and her husband are such a sweet couple AND he just got home yesterday after a year in Afghanistan!  What a happy day for their whole family (and their friends too)!  🙂

Here are some photos of the process and the finished product:
