Friendship Star

The zentangle challenge for this week is Starry Eyed Surprise. I had no idea at first, but then I thought of a quilt block. Why not tangle one! Of course I picked the block called Friendship Star. I started with Cubine in the centre. Then I tangled Corn Rows in the points of the star. For the background I choose Kuginuki. I'm still learning how to do the shading and this time I used a 3B pencil, it worked very well.

  1. I love you friendship star! Being a quilter too I'm drawn to the wide variety of patterns available in zentangle as well. What a great idea to use a quilt block as your string.

  9. Was für ein herrlicher Stern! Er erinnert mich an Windmühlen – oder diese Papierwindrädchen ;-) .
    Ich mag, dass er seine 'Quilterherkunft' nicht verleugnen kann!
    Neugierig auf weitere ZTs von dir,
    Phine
