Weekly Challenge #180: MacDee

The tangle for this week is by Anneke Van Dam and looks like classic Scottish, checkered fabric. You can she her step outs HERE.

As my father is Scottish on his dad's side, his last name being Buchanan, we have a Tartan as all Scottish Clans do. I thought I might try to incorporate some colors in this tangle but, as I am a color phobic and it looked a bit difficult to pull off I decided against it!

            What I did come up with is adding a MacDee background to an existing Bijou tile:


And then a second one I tried intertwining the leaves and Mooka in the fabric:

I think there is a bit too much white space for me so I may go back to the drawing board, so to speak, and try this one again.


  1. Debra, I love the family Tartan, it has wonderful colors!! And MacDee is a nice background for Mooka!

  2. Like the simplicity of your tiles. Especially like the Mooka.

  3. Both are beautiful, but the one with Mooka is my favorite.

  4. Both are lovely. But the top one is my favorite!

  5. Both are lovely but I love the one with the Mokka!

  6. Love the Buchanan Tartan. Both of your Tiles have Mooka in them. Love the way your Mooka interplayed with your MacDee pattern in the second Tile, and your first Tile Mooks are beautifully interweoven. Great Job, Debra.
