Fancy Nancy

This pattern grew from a challenge that Rick Roberts gave to my CZT class - to look around our surroundings and find inspiration for a pattern, create it, and deconstruct it.  It was my third creation (each of them named for one of our children) and our daughter Nancy had earlier quipped that, "if you are working your way up the food chain, I'm next!"  That is how it was christened after her!

Fancy Nancy is featured in the middle of this tile.
This pattern can be found on Linda Farmer's wonderful website -


  1. I thought since MY name is Nancy that I should learn this cute tangle. I really like the variation where you used thicker lines. Thank you. Nancy

  2. From another Nancy, I agree great tangle and variations.
