A zen of a quilt

I finished the zentangle quilt last night, while thinking about my DIY challenge. I wish all my quilts came to mind as easily as the zentangle. Usually I have a concept and let it bounce around in my head for a while, getting an idea here, an idea there and then I pull them all together. Sometimes it takes a while.

After finishing the zentangle quilt, I worked a while on another piece, which combines quilting, painting and dimensional applique. And I sewed together the bases for two more potential zentangles (or I might use them for something else.....)

I posted my zentangle quilt to the 3 Creative Studios challenge page. There are some beautiful works already posted, it's always inspiring to see what everyone else is doing.

 Here's the finished zentangle quilt and a couple of details. Time for me to get busy. More later.

Hi Vicki,

We are in the same group! Nice to be "working" with you - looking forward to seeing more of what you do throughout the year.

Oh my this is great. I just started doing tangles about 2 weeks ago and we've been talking about how great it would be to quilt them and poof here's a beautiful example. They are both great.
Also thanks for pointing to your post on antique sewing machines/feet. It's very interesting.
