Zen-Sational Stitches for Quilting teaches you how to use the artistic and elaborate doodles known as Zentangles to create intriguing quilting and machine embroidery designs. Doodle a Zentangle pattern on fabric, and stitch over the lines to transfer an attractive Zentangle design to a quilt or home decor project.

Then try making wall hangings, quilts, purses and more with the Zentangle quilting method. You’ll get ideas for all kinds of quilt projects with decorative stitching. You’ll be delighted by how you can create stylized birds, flowers, paisleys, and hearts with Zentangles.
