Zentangle to Fabric

You may be interested in seeing these little Zentangle Quilts I have made for my class samples at the AMQF in Adelaide on the 1-4 October 2010 - not long to go now.

The quilting I have used in these are all Zentangle patterns that I use in my drawing.   I love the "organic" feel to these little quilts and I think they would make fantastic placemats if you could bear to use them for that.   These ones are a little small though at 8x8inches.

More ....












One of the difficult things about this is how to replicate your drawings onto fabric ... working out how to do a continuous line and make it look good.







This one is bigger 12 x 12 inches and you can see I have used the colour of the threads differently here.

So if this is tempting ... think about coming to do my class at the AMQF in Adelaide.  There are a lot of classes on offer from other teachers as well and it is for both Longarm and domestic machine quilters.

Cheers for now .... Jane

  1. The quilts are just lovely - I'm partial to the 12 x 12 one overall and because it includes one of my favorite tangles - paradox. What would it take to get you to part with that one? Or any possibility of seeing it in person at the CZT class? The folks in our upcoming classes are surely in for a treat.

  2. Your little quilts are just amazing. I keep sending links of zentangle quilts to my quilting sister hoping she'll catch the bug!

  3. Nicely done! I have Zentangled on paper, but not to fabric yet. I like that you stitched with both black and white threads.
