Hello!  Ready for your next challenge?
Do you remember when we tangled a group of tiles?
This week's challenge is a two step process, we're going to

tangle a border print

This challenge is inspired by my favourite tablecloth.
I have spent many hours at the dinner table thinking
how this cloth would be perfect to tangle. 

Step 1:
  tangle a straight border
There are so many really cool "border tangles" like 
just to name a few.
You can choose any border tangle,
it does not have to be one of the ones that I have listed.

Step 2:
tangle an all over design

Use one or more of your favourite tangle(s) in a pattern.

Draw both on one tile or
stack your two tangle drawings 
to create your border print.

Optional Step 3:
repeat the pattern

Many of you are very savvy with Photoshop so if you want to take it one step further, repeat your finished piece to create a "border print fabric".
 If you have any questions, please ask.
Have fun!

  1. thanks for mentioning my tangle Dutch Diamonds :) what a fun surprise :)

  2. You are really great a thinking up amazing challenges. This will be fun. :-)

  3. Ah ha! I know I've got you all thinking when the thumbnails don't immediately pop up early in the week! Perhaps this challenge is more challenging?! A good thing I'm sure! I look forward to seeing what you are working on!

  4. This was good for me. Nudged me out of my comfort zone and made me think a bit believe it or not. Yes, there is a border, but it's not traditional I guess. Might do more with it.

  5. For some reason, this one was really challenging. I did 2 tiles, but I'm not really happy with either one. Hope to do better next week.

  6. This challenge was really exciting. I had to try it 3 times before I got mine right.


I really enjoy reading your thoughts and ideas about the posts that I write here. It's nice to just say hi too!
