Yet Another Zentangle Rabbit

For some reason, everything around me seems to end up being about Bunnies. Why is that, do you think?! Let me show you the latest example.

 My Quilt guild runs a workshop once every month, and this past Saturday, we had Pat Ferguson, the Zentangle Quilter as our instructor. If you get a chance to have a class with her, take it. She is terrific. Very organized, and very clear. She had everything we needed in a kit, and took us through the steps in a thorough, yet entertaining way.

We started by drawing a Zentangle, then we enlarged it and quilted it. She gave us tips on what patterns would transfer well to sewing, and tips on overall design, also. After the pieces were sewn, she had us go back in with marker and pencil to add shading. Some of her quilts that she brought as examples were colored with crayons. I thought that would look good on this little guy, so when I got home, I added crayon. This is heat set with an iron. Remember to put paper between the quilt and your iron, to absorb the wax.

This is the back. You can see the corners that she had us attach to the back. A dowel can be inserted into two of these for hanging. The trick is, most Zentangles (obviously not this one!) are non-directional, so having corners on all four sides lets you change how you hang it. Isn't that a great idea? This was so much fun. I feel a few more might be in my future.
