Quilt Surprise

Pat Ferguson, CZT, dropped by yesterday with her mom to pick up some Zentangle supplies. She also brought some small quilts. As soon as we saw them we asked if we could share them in our blog and she agreed.

These Zentangle quilts were about eight or nine inches on a side. On the square ones (and since a classic Zentangle has no obvious orientation) Pat had sewn a diagonal pocket in each corner on the back so they could hang in any direction with the aid of an inserted dowel. Nice touch, Pat!






Here's a closer view of the above quilt's reverse side.



You can see more of Pat's quilting at her website.

Thanks again, Pat, for bringing those wonderful quilts and letting us share them with our readers.

oh, my, I have been quilting up a storm for the past 4 years, producing over 40 lap/twin bed size quilts...and I have struggled to master my own machine quilting techniques, without much luck.

To see someone go BEYOND machine quilting utilizing
zentangle patterns is REMARKABLE. These should be featured at the SPRING or FALL QUILT MARKET in the USA. The Fall Market is always in Texas, and the spring one rotates throughout the country at various large cities with good airports & convention centers. Pat is a fantastic quilter.

Beautiful little quilts, Pat! Did you machine embroider the Zentangle or drew them on the fabric first? I liked the way you machine quilt the background with white matching thread and it doesn't distract from the black line drawings. Beautiful Work!

These quilts are great! I've just begun to zentangle and I love it. It's a great take along. Thanks for the great idea. I never thought to applique with this design.
