With a brand-spankin’ New Year upon us, it’s the perfect time to explore new creative frontiers while honoring artistic traditions that have led us this far.
What do I have in mind, you wonder?
Well, you may remember how I told you about Zentangle, the addictive art of zany (yet so very Zen) doodling.

True to form, each time I swirl and squiggle lines on paper, I find myself fantasizing about fabric, which inspired me to poke around a bit into the idea of Zentangle quilting, and wouldn’t you know it?
It’s a real thing.
And it’s just as neat-o as I’d imagined.
Just look at Quilt Zentangle Style! on Pinterest (warning: you might start drooling).

Book: Tangle Stitches: For Quilters and Fabric Artists by Jane Monk
