There is this special woodland garden in Washington state, which has over 40 varieties of trilliums - Cottage Lake Gardens. The gardener's niece made her a quilled masterpiece celebrating trilliums and fairies...and more.

The album is public, on Facebook, here, though I'll start you off with a couple pictures and their descriptions. It's worth reading through each letter in the Facebook album.


My aunt is a Master Gardener out of Woodinville Washington and her specialty is the Trillium flower. She asked me if I could make a quilling piece based on the life cycle of the trillium.



Each letter represents a stage in the Trilliums life cycle. But as an added element, I also quilled 'trillium fairies' who grow along with their flowers. Here is the baby fairy holding a trillium seed. She's seated under a Douglas Fir tree, to bring in an element of the Pacific Northwest which my aunt calls home.



It was my hope that by incorporating the ants, as well as the aging fairies, it would give my work a sense of flow and movement.
