How to Quill a Pumpkin

It's that time of the year, when the air cools and the leaves start to fall. This is my favorite season. It's when I enter into a more reflective mood. So to speak, it is the calm before the storm of the holiday hustle and bustle. In October, I will be teaching another class to raise funds for breast cancer research. Here's a preview of the fall projects:
Quill 5 loose coils (6" long 1/8" deep orange paper)

Shape four of them into crescents

You will need one marquise for the center and four crescents
for the pumpkin sections

Mold the sections, working from the center to the side

Quill a 6" long green paper for the leaf
and shape into a duck's foot.

With the needle quilling tool, twirl a piece of
green paper for the  tendrils.

Quill a 1/4" long brown paper for the stem,
assemble the tendril and the stem to
make the finished pumpkin.

Happy Fall!
