Orange Notan


My contribution for this challenge.  I've been taking part in another challenge as well recently, and then at a get-together with fellow quilters we were looking at Notan designs, and I realised I could combine both.  When working in paper you just turn over the pieces to get the expanded image, but that doesn't work with bonding fabric, so I had to make two.  The same happened with my other challenge, so I ended up with 4 related pieces.  Here's the other three images.

  1. Love them. There is something very Mayan/Aztec about the actual designs. I love the one you have chosen and it also says gold to me - another link to ancient peoples.

  6. It's great to see the alternative designs but I think I prefer 'ours' because of its' relative simplicity!

  7. I like the way you've put the 4 components together, and set them up with the "bridge" in the middle and the frame created by the quilting.

  8. Very intricate Notan in comparison the the ones I have made. They must have been fun to produce. Makes me want to try it again.
