Book Review: Zen Quilting Workbook

Zen Quilting WorkbookWanted to let you know that I’ve just posted my review of CZT® Pat Ferguson’s new Zen Quilting Workbook here, and to share a very cool tip below from the book that you can use whether you’re a quilter or not.

Pat’s book obviously focuses on working with fabric and one of her Zen Quilting embellishment techniques involves what she terms “pen stitching”, using our trusty Sakura Micron pens.

I thought this is a great idea from Pat on how to easily distinguish your favorite pen nib sizes from one another so I obtained the publisher’s permission to use this copyright image from the book.

Tip for marking your Sakura Micron pens

Use colored ribbons and/or tape on the cap of your pens so you can easily find the nib you’re looking for. Image © 2011 Design Originals, used with permission.

In one of her early videos, Suzanne McNeill mentions she uses colored tape so she can tell her “new” pens from the older used ones (you know, the scratchy guys). This is another way to use colored tape or ribbon to distinguish one from another.

Decorative tape or colored rubber bands would work too. I recently began using masking tape to date my pens when I start using them. Not as colorful as these ideas. I can already hear scissors snipping and tape ripping “as we speak”!

Please do check out my review of Pat’s book here for more creative ways to enjoy your Zentangle® habit and to see a lovely example of one of Pat’s Zen Quilts from her “Gallery of Zen Quilts”.

If you already own a copy of Pat’s book, please add your thoughts to the comments on my review page for the benefit of others. Cheers and thanks!
