    DescriptionZentangle = filling odd shaped spaces with repetitive patterns using pen and paper, developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Zentangle quilting = filling odd shaped spaces with repetitive patterns using machine stitches and thread. Free-motion quilting in repetitive patterns is not new to quilters. They have long used stitch patterns like "vermicelli" and "echo" stitching to quilt their projects. "Tangle Stitches for Quilters and Fabric Artists" takes the concepts, theory and method of Zentangle and transfer them into quilting patterns and projects. You will learn how to create tangle patterns on paper and then how to create the same patterns in thread, the key difference being that Zentangle patterns on paper are 'one stroke at a time' while quilting patterns are most efficiently achieved in one continuous line. Zentangle-inspired quilting projects include materials, how to mark and prepare fabric, tricks and tools. The projects can be achieved on either a domestic (conventional sit-down) sewing machine or longarm quilting machine.

    Author Information
    Jane Monk lives in Tasmania, Australia. She is a self-taught artist who has been drawing since she was a young girl, inspired by the beauty in all things in the natural and man-made worlds. Patterns and repetition, and the sometimes quirky and different, are what inspire her work. Jane began quilting in 2003 and loved it so much that she purchased a longarm quilting machine in 2007. Jane is an award-winning machine quilter and quilts professionally for others through her business, Jane Monk Studio. Jane has designed quilt patterns for publication in quilting magazines and produced a DVD showcasing the basics of Zentangle and quilting. She has taught numerous classes in Zentangle, quilting, free-motion stitching, making journal covers, and doll making. In 2010 Jane became a Certified Zentangle Teacher and combines her love of Zentangle and quilting by bringing these two complementary mediums together. "Zentangle Stitches for Quilters and Fabric Artists "is her first book. Learn more about her on her website: www.janemonkstudio.com.
