Quilled wedding knot







      I received a request from a friend for an arathi thattu for her daughter's wedding.  I suggested flowers , but she wanted something different and new. I found this design on the internet on a  wedding card. I drew it out and quilled .I used beehive quilling as it seemed best as I had to incorporate the dots to show some design on the clothes.In some Indian weddings the saree of the bride is tied to the groom's garment symbolizing the union.

Thanks for stopping by , Have a great day.

Natasha R Naidu said...

Suganthi, this is beautiful. I'm not a big fan of wavy quilled strips because unless appropriate for the pattern, they look very out of place. But they're a perfect match for an idea like this.
Good job.
Very imaginative and neat.
