Zen-Sational Stitches for Quilting teaches you how to use the artistic and elaborate doodles known as Zentangles to create intriguing quilting and machine embroidery designs. Doodle a Zentangle pattern on fabric, and stitch over the lines to transfer an attractive Zentangle design to a quilt or home decor project. You can also start stitching right away without sketching out a pattern if you feel confident in your doodling abilities. If you enjoy doodling and making hand-drawn Zentangles, you'll love using the same cool designs on your sewing projects.

Zen-Sational Stitches for Quilting guides you through the process of learning how to make Zentangles with thread, starting with smaller shapes like apples. You'll learn how to fill an apple with all kinds of doodle designs and get inspiration for ways to design your Zentangle. Then try making wall hangings, quilts, purses and more with the Zentangle quilting method. You'll get ideas for all kinds of quilt projects with decorative stitching. You'll be delighted by how you can create stylized birds, flowers, paisleys, and hearts with Zentangles. The effect of Zentangles in quilting is like beautiful hand-embroidery, but without all the time-consuming work. Zentangles can be done with a sewing machine quickly and easily.

In contrast to traditional quilting and embroidery, Zentangle stitching is relaxing and creative. It allows you to let your creativity run wild as you fill in shapes with random decorative doodles rather than preconceived designs. It also relaxes you because the technique is very forgiving. Any mistake becomes just a unique feature of the design and an expression of your originality. The most beautiful thing about Zentangles is that no two are alike; each piece you create will be entirely one-of-a-kind. These beautiful quilting projects will give your home a personal touch like no other craft project.
