Tasting Table Tuesday - Zen Style

I won't bore you with pictures of my projects today, because I'm busy binding (ho hum) the two commission quilts you've already seen, although I'll post pics when they're completely done in a day or two.

But I do have something exciting to share with you. Have you heard about the art of Zentangle? I was recently introduced to it by my friend Diane, and I'm hooked. It's a form of doodling, but SO much more than that! When I first saw some examples, I was amazed at its similarity to free-motion quilting. I've been watching instructional YouTube videos almost every day, and even see zentangles in my dreams (and I wonder why I have trouble sleeping!).

The other day, I decided I needed a Zentangle book, and lo and behold - look what I found on Amazon! A Zentangle QUILTING book!!!

My book is on it's way, so you can bet that I'll be drawing Tangles at my Tasting Table by this Time next Tuesday. I wonder if I doodle better before, or after, that glass of wine??? Hmmm...


  1. YOu will have to let me know how you like the book.

  2. I hear those can be addicting. My art group had a Zentangle challenge and I was impressed with what the girls made. I didn't have time to even think about it unfortunately.

    Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.


  3. I can't wait to get your take on it. I've been toying with doing some Zentangle quilting. I haven't had the courage to pick up the book yet Don't know why. Just haven't. I love the zentangle concept, too!

  4. Wine ALWAYS helps the creative juices flow better....

  5. I just got that book, too! Now I just need to carve out some time for me!

  6. Uh-oh! LOL! Have I created a "monster"? Enjoy, Kathy!!!
