I’ve always wanted to learn how to sew. It’s one of many crafts on my to-do list. But the tiny little perfect stitches always intimidated me when I would see a really well-done quilt or stocking craft. Well, the great thing about handmade crafts is just that—they’re handmade! Because they aren’t produced in a factory by a machine, they’re supposed to have little imperfections. That’s why Zentangle is a perfect technique for quilting! We are giving away one copy of Zen-sational Stitches for Quilting! Enter to win here.
Have you ever heard of “tangling” before? Zentangle is a process that was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, and it is a unique art form that anyone can sit down and create. It was designed for people of all ages and all artistic skill levels as a means of relaxing through sketching these repetitive patterns—hence, the name Zentangle.
Suzanne McNeill, author of Zen-sational Stitches for Quilting, takes the concept of Zentangle in another direction as she focuses on the art of quilting. The book first shows all of the beautiful finished patterns, and next details each of the stitches. McNeill has collected Zentangle patterns for a variety of uses, such as tote bags, pillows, tea towels, and more. She even includes tips for beginning quilters in the heart of the book. These patterns make gorgeous, unique quilt crafts. Let them inspire your holiday crafting and give the finished quilts as gifts this Christmas. You are sure to find an abundance of inspiration in this wonderful book.
