This book definitely is the best quilling book I own or seen in stores. The projects in the book range from simple to complex. The workmanship is neat and exquisite, a great model to follow. There are some techniques that I have not seen elsewhere that produce interesting effects. The gallery of the author's work is wonderful and inspiring. I hope she would publish a book on how to create those large, complex pieces of quilling artworks. I'd like to try creating one of those heirloom-quality quilling artworks and proudly hang on my wall. The "Art" of Paper Quilling is a very fitting title for the book.

Update: The book has folded roses that are much prettier then roses in other books. However, the directions on page 24 were not detailed enough for me to follow and produce a good looking rose like the ones in the book. I emailed Claire asking for step-by-step instructions. She replied with a video she recorded demonstrating the folded rose. Absolutely wonderful! Seeing it done once is a thousand times better then reading instructions on how it should be done. After seeing the video, I was able to create folded roses just like the ones in the book.

Format: Paperback
This book has absolutely beautiful designs of paper quilling. There are many styles of flower that are completely different than I have ever seen. However, as an experienced quiller I do not think this book will be very helpful for beginning quillers. The author uses strips of a length which are not, to my knowledge, available in either Canada or the United States (10 5/8"). In addition, some of the lengths she says to use for certain designs seem very suspect. In some cases short lengths are used (according to her instructions) but the picture shows an item clearly made from a much longer strip. In addition she mentions widths of paper which I have never seen here (3/16", 9/32", and 5/16"). Finally, her names of the colours of the strips in her book are names which I have never seen here. If I was trying to follow her instructions and was looking in the stores for "dusty grape" strips that were 10 5/8" long, I think I would be very frustrated when I couldn't find them. Therefore, overall I am somewhat disappointed in this book, even though I do love the designs.

I've been quilling for a few months and was totally bored with all the little cutsie patterns and projects and didn't want to get into quilling marriage documents or birth anouncements. Everything I saw was based on the idea that you were a beginner who wasn't really interested in this craft until I found this book. The author is amazing! She is without a doubt the finest quiller I have ever seen. Her work has inspired me to expand on my own with new ideas and techniques. Her projects take you step by step through each section in clear and easy to understand directions to a finished piece that you wouldn't mind giving as a gift or framing for your own wall. There is a gallery of quilling in the back of the book that shows pieces I would never have believed were made from paper except that now I know how to do them myself from reading her book. I am working on a project now that uses 6 new techniques that I have never found in any other quilling book. It's a three demensional flower arrangement of my own design and every time I look at it I am amazed that I am the one who created it. Quilling is fun again! This book showed me that I have only just scratched the surface of this amazing craft. Thank you Claire Sun-ok Choi for taking the time to share your knowledge.

Quilling, or the art of paper filigree doesn't require much in the way of expensive tools. You could even start off with narrow strips from a mini paper shredder (the author's suggestion), plus glue, scissors, tweezers, straight pins, and something to roll the paper strips around, such as a toothpick or an awl.

"The Art of Paper Quilling" is a good guide to start with, and it is also the most beautiful quilling book I've had the opportunity to read. Most of its projects use 1/8" (3 mm)-wide strips, but the one I wanted to try right away, "A Blue Cornflower and Daisy Arrangement" involved cut-out and fringed petals, plus a fringed center using ¼" (6 mm)-wide strips. A fringing tool would be very useful for many of this book's projects, if you don't want the tedium of fringing strips by hand.

The patterns in this guide vary from 60% of actual size to full-size. (I wish authors would stick to full-size patterns, but I suppose this isn't always possible). They range from simple to complex, but even the complex designs consist of a few varieties of paper coils, repeated many times. Most of the projects involve flowers and/or butterflies, but there are also a few Christmas designs and a pair of Easter bunnies. The finished quillwork is used to decorate picture frames, plaques, boxes, greeting cards, and gift bags (sachets).

Colored photographs decorate this 128-page craft book, including a gallery of paper quilling art by Claire Sun-ok Choi in its final pages. I am especially fond of her fanciful, multi-colored butterflies. This author has also published "Designing Handcrafted Cards: Step-by-Step Techniques for Crafting 60 Beautiful Cards" (2004).
