The art of quilling (also known as paper filigree) was born over 500 years ago when artists discovered that narrow strips of paper could be rolled, scrolled, fluted, and fringed, and then arranged to create beautiful designs. The original tool used to roll the strips of paper and vellum was the quill of a bird feather, giving this art its name.
