The words "quilt as desired" make most quilters shudder just before they place yet another unstitched quilt top high on the shelf. With this enhanced quilt-as-you-go method, you will learn many different ways to create and then quilt free motion and linear patterns on small sections before you add them to the main body of your quilt. This novel approach to quilt making allows for a wealth of design opportunities to employ in your projects. Working with improvisation, it is a choose-your-own adventure with no master plan. Instead, we start with an inspiration, a gathering of materials to embrace the theme, and a set of design guidelines for each project. Instead of piecing whole backs, squaring up large pieces, and neck-straining quilting, you will learn new ways to make each section more manageable through techniques that are as simple or as involved as you wish. Rather than getting bogged down by seeing "quilt as desired," you'll soon learn how to Quilt As Inspired.

Zentangle = 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.
