Hi Barbara, I just read my daily tangle email, which was for a Voga, and the Voga referred to a PUF tangle. I think the PUF might work in  block #4.

What do you think?

Barbara:

I may pratice this on paper

I have been practicing drawing the PUF on paper too. I love the fun 3-D effect. I had the best luck drawing it if i do the "X" in step 4 before I do the echo curved greek key in step 3. The trick is to travel back down the "X" a little bit as you spiral in. If you don't travel back down a little, the arcs flatten out and become square. I can make each square as one continuous line. I have to break thread or travel stitch out along one x branch to start the next square. Fun way to fill.

ok every one here is block #4. I used a modified verson of a zentangle pattern call Puf, I will have to go back and look for the designers name . and then I just SID and then did half moons on the other squares .I think it came out pretty good . If you are not aware of what Zentangle is go to this web site ,they have lots of designs that can be used in quilting .www.tanglepatterns.com .Here is my block.Barbara

Just beautiful. I love the effect of the change in texture between the half moons on the hour glass blocks and the PUF blocks. They look beautiful together. I like your PUF block better than mine because you do not have the "x" in the center. How did you do that (not have the "x" in the center?)

Barbara, your block #4 is another beautiful pattern.  You keep outdoing yourself each time.  Anyone want to make me some sandwiches to practice on, I'm just too lazy, darn it!
