Zentangle Heart

Still under the needle. Design from my new book, you can see the heart design on the cover. I am using a signature variegated thread and have had to travel stitch over several times to build up color. It is a really good way to practice my FMQ skills. The fabric is canvas as I wanted a rough texture as the background. Once done I might add some beading or maybe bleed some textile ink into some of the sections to add interest. It's still kinda plain looking right now.

Would love some ideas??


  1. So fun! I am literally in the middle of a Valentine's Day zentangle for my husband and was wondering if I could quilt it.

    I think a tiny row of white seed beads around the edge to mimic lace (or very narrow real lace) would add a valentine-y effect.

  2. I would love to see your tangle after it's done! I ended up using shiva paint stick in an iridescent lavender and filled in the swirl. I may have some pink and lavender seed beads to add on.

  3. I think it's absolutely beautiful!
