I found these 2 books at. my local quilt shop, bought them decided to give it another try soon . Even though I attempted a tangle quilt in the past, it didn't turn out quite like I expected. What I did wrong was not starting the stitching in the middle of the project & it bunched up. now that I know what the mistake was I can correct it in future projects. These are the two books I found that use exactly the same method I began with. Sorry that the pics are sideways, my IPad threw a fit while taking them.
These books not only show how to make a tangle, they also give quilting instructions and offer sample projects for the reader to use. Maybe some day I'll write a similar book, who knows.

Tangles, I find, are very similar to quilting motifs, the difference being that quilting motifs are not filled in the way tangles are. I "borrowed" this quilting motif & turned it into a tangle. Since it contained hearts I thought it's be perfect for Valentines Day.
