"It's a String Thing" #108

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

This week we begin with TanglePatterns String 108 by CZT Joan Delony ~

I am happy to be able to say that Joan is a friend of mine.  She is an accomplished artist, not only in tangle related things, but also in stained glass.  This beautiful cross, a gift from Joan, hangs over my desk:

Cross by Joan Delony, CZT

Joan also lives in one of my favorite areas of Florida, St. Augustine, a town celebrating it's 450th anniversary this week. It is the oldest city in the United States.

I called Joan today and asked her to name her top three grid based patterns.  Without hesitation she listed these:

 Cubine by Maria Thomas
 Lanie one of my patterns (and that made me smile!)
Chemystery by CZT MaryAnn Scheblein-Dawson.

She said that most all of her work contains these patterns along with
Primtemps by Maria Thomas.

"They add dimension and just seem to flow", she added.

In honor of Joan, we will use these four tangles with her string.

Step outs for the patterns can be found by clicking their names above and/or TanglePatterns.

Use as many or as few as you'd like.

Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!  Keep in mind that string lines are suggestions and let the patterns lead the way.
