One way of working out how much to charge I was told was to calculate the cost of materials and double that at least!!

How long did it take you to make? The minimum wage is now about (?) £7.00 an hour!!! Also how desperate are you to sell it? I hate pricing items for sale!!! Best Rosemary

I have finally managed to find a couple of hours for sewing so I made use of Xmas presents from DH - inktense pencils and a large LED lightbox, together with a workbook on Zentangle quilts from a lovely friend and had a little play.

More lovely projects. Well done to all.

I have got some Inktense pencils, but that is as far as it has got. Not feeling very productive at the moment.

Marlene this looks wonderful.

Carol b I am going on a retreat in April. We will be doing the ZEntangle. Is it hard to do and do you need any special pens

Bye Pam

Another beautiful quilt Marlene.


I did a workshop with Kathleen Laurel Sage at FOQ and was delighted to find zentangling was not as difficult as I expected, it is certainly fun. For the original black and white zentangles you need an erasable pen (either water or heat erasable) to trace the pattern on to the fabric. Make a quilt sandwich with marked pattern piece on top, then loosely following the lines you FMQ over them in black. Using a Black permanent ink pen, Kathleen recommends Shiwen Supercolor waterproof pens, you colour in any circles, stripes etc that you want to. (check how far the ink spreads on a sample first). When finished remove the initial erasable lines. Then you can quilt around the design if you want to, bind and it is done.

The workshop book by Pat Fergusen introduced me to using colour as well as the clean lines of black and white and as I had my Inktense pencils it gave me chance to play with them.

I am sure you will have a great time on the retreat and I will envy you doing it. Hope this info is useful

Great projects everyone. Marlene...I do like both of your quilts....Pam your little bag and throw are gorgeous...and Carol just never stop either do the Zentangle. I've got Inktense pencils as well and really need to try and use them more.

I'm busy making a bag for a friend in Canada who has just lost her husband. Now that I've got her updated phone number I need to call her.
