In Stitches

Many quilters use Zentangle as a source for design inspirations. Jane Monk is a longarm quilter from Northern Tasmania. She has some wonderful examples on her dedicated Zentangle blog that we thought you'd enjoy. We've added her blog to our blogroll on the right.

Jane sent us a link to an image of this journal cover she created using Sakura's Pigma Micron on white fabric and then stitching over it. Beautiful!

Here's a detail shot. Beautiful!

Enjoy everyone. And thanks, Jane.

Absolutely amazing. I'm a mixed media artist and have wondered how I might incorporate the zentangles into a fabric wall-hanging.

I love the look of this.. the depth that you were able to get from stitching the Zentangle is lovely. You can see the puffiness of it.. it looks so touchable!

Beautiful! Having quilted also, I really appreciate this post! Does the micron pen smear on the fabric? It doesn't look like it, but have had that experience.

Absolutely amazing. The stitching justs adds so much dimension!

Oh thanks so much for your lovely post about my little journal cover ... I didn't have any problems with the pens smudging - I used fabric that is prepared for dying (PFD Fabric)and then I ironed it to set the ink (not sure if you need to do this but I did. And yes - fabric is a really tactile medium and goes so well with the zentangles - I've got to do more!
