Being a quilter and seeing repetitive patterns over and over can be boring. I find whole cloth quilts beautiful in their own right, but again, not my type. Color, texture, and quilting stitches can break up the monotony, but it doesn't change the repetitiveness. Sometimes I finish a quilt and am disappointed by it for this reason. This is why I don't like following a pattern verbatim. Or I will put a spin on the design or do free hand quilting in my own designs. The Zentangle method can work on quilt patterns and stitching to fill spaces and bring interest. I want to test this out on a negative space quilt I have waiting for design inspiration, so this must be what I'm waiting for. Using the thread in the machine, I will "draw" out my Zentangles to fill the spaces.
For now, it's break time for my brain and I need to get dinner on. I will get back to this in the coming days.
