First Time Tangle Quilting Book Excerpt:

Zentangle = filling odd shaped spaces with repetitive patterns using pen and paper, developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Zentangle quilting = filling odd shaped spaces with repetitive patterns using machine stitches and thread. Free-motion quilting in repetitive patterns is not new to quilters. They have long used stitch patterns like "vermicelli" and "echo" stitching to quilt their projects. First Time Tangle Quilting takes the concepts, theory and method of Zentangle and transfer them into quilting patterns and projects. You will learn how to create tangle patterns on paper and then how to create the same patterns in thread, the key difference being that Zentangle patterns on paper are 'one stroke at a time' while quilting patterns are most efficiently achieved in one continuous line. Zentangle-inspired quilting projects include materials, how to mark and prepare fabric, tricks and tools. The projects can be achieved on either a domestic (conventional sit-down) sewing machine or longarm quilting machine.
