From Tile to Quilt

Elaine Huffman, CZT, created this tile in response to Laura Harms' "Biggify" challenge:

Then Elaine proceeded to translate that pen/pencil/paper Zentangle image into a thread/cloth Zentangle inspired creation:

Elaine blogs the steps she took to make that translation with some great pictures from her quilt studio in this blog entry. This is Elaine's second blog entry and we've added her Sew Tangled blog to our "Links" section.

Speaking of "Links," over the past few weeks and months we've added many new links to Zentangle related blogs.

It's easy to see why this creative community keeps growing. Inspiration lives in the sharing. Beautiful, Elaine!

Great translation! There are so many parallels between repetitive pattern making with pencils and pens and free motion quilting. One of my favorite non-zentangle places to look for design inspiration is Day Style Designs Free Motion Quilting Project. This is a link the the index of patterns, http://www.daystyledesigns.com/365project.htm
It is RICH with ideas all translated into free motion quilting, a visual treat.
