This translates as “creator of the fruit of the vine” and is part of the blessing said over wine. The background was inspired by a book on Chinese lattice designs, by Daniel Sheets Dye. Then the grapevine was draped around it. Each grape is a separate roll of quilling paper, and each leaf is made of four different pieces. The Hebrew letters are also quilled.
This was the first piece of Judaic quilling that I ever made, and it set the direction for all of my work since then.
