    It is the process of thinking that you use to make a zentangle that is so interesting!
    The photo of one made of black and white prints stitched together to make a zentangle is stunning.
    but, if you use colored prints to do the same thing -
    surprise - You will end up with a familiar crazypatch!

    I had seen the subject and pix Zentangle but had no idea what or how to make one. I think Sue MacNeil(10 minute quilt block) has some books on this. Thanks sew much.

    Yes, you are right! tothenci!
    You got me! LOL, but if every section of that same zentangle
    was a different color and/or print.... it would be a crazy patch.
    By the way, I just love zentangles too!
    and I am so glad that you showed me and all of us about zentangles!
    And special thanks for showing todays demo!

    I saw your book and set the catalog to order. Well now I have to get my act in gear. I saw the video a few minutes ago. Way too fun.

    You did a fine job sending this message! I'm intreaged with zentangle. I used to doodle in elementry school something similar to this. You've made it more elegant with quilting :thumbup:

    This is a great way to use Zentangle. I just heard about it and it looks like fun. I love to doodle and what a better way to do it than by machine. Thank you for sharing!

    I don't do the zen tangles but find the books great for free motion inspiration for small quilt areas. There is also a method using straight lines in different directions and shapes I used this with children at school doing landscape pictures. I wonder if this was the beginning of tangles?

    I recently discovered zentangles. Great! Another way to while away the hours at the doctor's office. Nothing needed but a pad and pen! Can't wait to translate some to fabric!

    Very clever indeed. I have seen the Zentangle site before and was very impressed with their designs. Never thought of doing them with a sewing machine. Will make a stunning quilt for sure. Well done
