Weekly Challenge #161: "In a Quandary about Quandary"

Late Monday night I saw that Laura had posted this week's challenge.  It's a pattern that never really appealed to me - only because I struggle with it - the tangle is 'Quandary'.  She says it's a practise tangle, and she sure was right about that.  It was too late to start so the next day on my lunchbreak I decided to practise - the only thing was I couldn't remember if it has 5 or 6 petals!  I had a play regardless and then I had a closer look on Tuesday and I discovered it was 6.  Then I read her little trick is to do it in sections, triangle by triangle.  It seemed like a good idea but when I drew it I kind of do the whole 'flower'  I'm going to call it a flower because it looks like one to me :)

Firstly I drew 3 circles and just started somewhere in the middle - I added 'Flowervine' as I thought the two patterns would work well plus to try to give the piece a bit of balance - not sure if I succeeded so I coloured some areas using a blue Copic marker.

  1. I like what you did with Quandary. I think it is a tangle that everyone has to decide the best way for them to approach it. I use the flower method and try to mirror petals. It works for me. I like how you had the vine meander through and also how the petals fall away.
