Make a grid (surprisingly neat for me)
Draw one set of diagonal lines, preferably in one continuous line rather than taking pen from paper for each little box.
Draw the opposite diagonals
Now, here I add in an extra step just to keep myself neat. The official step-out just says to draw a plus sign in the centre of each cross, but I put in all the vertical lines at once
Followed by the horizontal lines.
Then join the tips of the plus signs to the corners of each box. First in one direction.
Then the other.
And it’s done! When I look at the finished Tangle my eyes switch back and forth between seeing the four-pointed shapes I drew, and big stars made by the spaces in between.
It’s quite similar to Hemp, isn’t it? Another of my favourites.
So what do you think of Quiltz? Have any of you made a quilt like this before? Let me know in the comments!
