little lines

The Diva’s Challenge this week was a UMT challenge involving an interesting tangle, Athitzi by Eleanor Holt. The pattern is just a series of short, parallel lines, but Eleanor produced a stunning effect in her tile.

I didn’t know where to go with this tangle, so I just drew a tile and incorporated Athitzi here and there. By my count Athitzi pops up 7 times in this tile. Can you find them all?

  1. This is actually a very inspired use of Athittzi. I have a feeling it’s going to become one of my “go to” filling in/background tangles. It works very well in your composition.

  2. Beautiful tile with so many patterns and wonderful combination of Athitzi as a “filler” :-)
    I like your shading and the contrast in the tile, really nice!

  3. A nice composition and I think your use of Athitki as shading is a great idea. It works well and there was the added fun of looking for them hiding in the other tangles.

  4. this is an energetic and cheery tile. I like how athitzi appears in so many nooks and crannies, and the patterns go well together. Lots to look at…interesting through and through.
