Free Quilling Patterns

I have been adding Free Quilling Patterns to this site so that everyone can see how easy quilling is. These patterns are free for personal use. You can use them in any non-commercial way. You may not represent these patterns as your own nor sell them commercially. If you would like to use these patterns or sell them, please contact me and we can discuss your specific details.

Please click to learn the basics of quilling and to learn to make the quilled shapes.

Beginner Patterns (these patterns use only the basic coil and spiral shapes):


  • 7 Petal Daisy - This is your basic Daisy pattern, quick and easy. A classic quilled design.
  • 4 Daisy Patterns - In this post, I provide photo and instructions for 4 basic daisy patterns.
  • Daisy Pattern - yet another daisy pattern. This one is shown on a card to demonstrate how you can combine quilling with card making.
  • Turkey Pattern - this uses simple techniques, but was something new for me. A bit of an abstract attempt.
  • Christmas Poinsettia - Here is a simple Quilled Christmas Poinsettia project. This is a classic that is perfect to add a string and make an ornament to hang on your tree!

  • These patterns use a variety of techniques and shapes and are fun to try:


    • Hot Air Balloon - Shows you how to use the fill-in technique to create a Hot Air Balloon
    • Wedding Cake - Uses fringed flower and alternate side looping techniques to create some really beautiful flowers that adorn a wedding cake. Suitable for a Wedding Card or as an embellishment on your scrapbook page.
    • Butterfly - This is an intermediate pattern that uses only the basic shapes.
    • Flowers of Love - This pattern uses S-scrolls to make a heart and accents this with white coil hearts. Lots of love for all of your Valentine's and Anniversary needs. This pattern was published in the Accord Quilling Calendar!
    • Lovey Dovey Birdhouse - This is a birdhouse pattern - very bright and springy.
    • Palm Tree and Sunshine - This is a very simple Palm Tree design. Perfect for that summer scrapbook page or a touch of humor for Christmas with Santa hanging out at the beach.
    • New Home Magnet - This is a great idea for a house warming gift.
    • Butterfly and Dogwoods - This is a perfect combination, a Spreuer Butterfly perched on a beautiful picture of a Pink Dogwood. This includes instructions and a link to the actual photograph so you can make the entire project on your own!
    • Easter Cross - This is a Spreuer Cross using the Patriarchal Cross design. It is augmented with delicate roses. Perfect design for Baptism, Weddings, Communions, Confirmations, Sympathy, or any religious gift or event.
    • Wedding Dress - A beautiful pattern of a Wedding Dress that is suitable for a scrapbook page, bridal shower, or wedding card. This pattern was published in the Accord Quilling Calendar!
    • Flower Girl Dress - This is a quick and easy pattern and can be used for a Flower Girl, Communion, Baptism, you name it. Just change the color and you can have any type of little girl event! This pattern was published in the Accord Quilling Calendar!
    • Red, White, and Blue Ladybug - Quick little ladybug for you to try. Remember, part of the fun is to play with the colors and make quilling truly your own. Here is the lady bug on a Sunburst flower too.
    • Pink Flamingo - this sweetie is made with roses and she is ready to fly away.
    • Happy Song Birds - this is a happy couple on a crackle painted background. The birds are perched on a branch enjoying the beautiful day.
    • Trellis with Yellow Flowers - Have you ever wanted to make a trellis and have flowers growing on the trellis, here is a simple pattern for you to try.
    • Flower Power Girl - This is a happy pattern inspired by my friend Toni, she literally leaps off the page.
    3D Quilling Patterns:

    • Spinning Top - This is made completely out of paper, including the spinning stick! Great idea for the kids.
    • Patriotic Spinning Top - Who knew a toothpick could be so useful. For tons of fun, try out this spinning top.

    Antonella, I have no idea who you are,but I feel like we would be great friends if I did. Your generosity in sharing your wonderful talent is such a blessing to me. I teach summer camps in my home/backyard to help pay off our student loans and this is my second year doing this. I did an arts and crafts session last summer and this summer, thankfully, have some repeat "campers". I loved the whole arts and crafts week but knew I needed to do some things that were different from last year, I just know this will be a massive hit and I am so thankful for the patterns you provided. You are wonderful! Thank you so much!

    Antonella said...

    You are so welcome, Anonymous 8th grader. It is always so nice to see quilling being taught is schools. I am glad that you have found my site helpful. Would love to see what you and your classmates make.
    Hugs, antonella :-)

    hi i am 11 years old and was introduced to quilling in a 4-h program in my town. i love your site but would like to get some more diffucult elegant designs. if you could give me a link or another website that would be great thank you!

    I love your ideas.
    I am new to quilling and just want to check that when you mention a length is that the final size or the length of the paper used?

    Antonella said...

    Hello Anonymous,
    Thanks for your question. When I mention a length, I refer to the length of the paper. Sometimes I will take a photo with something next to the finished item to give you perspective of the size of the object.
    Hope this helps!
    Hugs,
    antonella :-)

    What a wonderful blog! I enjoy your patterns and ideas very much.

    I wondered how you would make a staw bonnet, kind if 3-D with a ribbon around the crown, and ribbons streaming down the back. I am making a shadow box, and I want to put 6 or 7 quilled straw hats with ribbons on a clothes line across the shadow box, but I haven't been happy with the little hats I have made so far.

    Thank you for your help!
