    I've found a very quick method for farming quills, and used it to get my last 7,500 quills in about 15 minutes, and so I thought I'd share. Equip the tonics: Less checkmates, googly eyes, quillsplosion, and if you have the 4th slot unlocked then add quill magnet. but it should still work without.

    Load up Chapter 3 Wild Web Woods - Wilder

    The moment the level starts, enemies that run at you will be infinitely and rapidly spawning in, and despite the fact that googly eyes is active, enemies spawned from the initial spawn point have no googly eyes and will die in one hit. Each enemy drops 5 or 6 quills. You can get a rhythm going whilst jumping, and it can be done pretty mindlessly without any of them getting past you. If you take a hit and lose Laylee, you can just walk over the starting checkpoint to bank the quills you've earned, and then kill yourself and carry on. Just speed through the level once you have 40% of your desired quill total to profit from the 2.5x bonus upon level completion.

    El AntonitoYou can just go backwards into the cave tail-whip them where they drop. So no need to time the jumps :) And I would replace the magnet with spotlight that gives you +0,5 extra in bonus.

    CasteriskNTI'm confirming El Antonito's improvements. You can safely and easily tail-whip the enemies as they drop by standing between them and the wall, and the 3.0 multiplier makes this go even faster. Thanks to you both for the solution.

    rafter84To get this achievement, do you need to purchase the tonic 'Golden Try' which is awarded to you upon completing the Impossible Lair on first try without bees?

    GerbasgamerChapter 4 (Frozen version) is quicker.
    Use Googly Eyes, Quill Magnet, Spotlight and Less Checkmates.
    Run/roll to the right until you get to the ice pillars where you should get your first quill. Then continue the level as usual. Make sure to hit all of the red quills and once you drop down roll to the secret area to the left.
    Continue running through the level unit you get to the pink quill. First stand on the left pillar, then the middle one, then the right one and back to the middle where it will explode.
    Then continue the level until you get to the sliding part. Just make sure to activate the two green quills and then end the level.
    Can be done within 2 minutes (loading included) and will give you ~1200 quills each run (600 per minute compared to the 500 in the solution above).

    Again, ignore going to the left at the beginning, ignore the yellow quill below and continue the level as I described. Only collect the odd "royal" quills that are on the way. Don't destroy any boxes that you don't have to.

    BryanRPh@embick - this does still work. You must use the QUILLSPLOSION tonic for them to drop quills/
