Notan

Had a good day today at the NW meeting of Contemporary Quilt. The subject was Notan, the 'instruction' was low key but very informative, the company was excellent - a good day all round.


 I've played with this idea before so made a conscious effort to set my original piece on point.


This design was based on a sketch from our last day out at Plas Newydd . It simply served to re-enforce the fact that I don't particularly enjoy this type of design, particularly when the leaf below, just didn't look right as a simple reversal of the pieces. So I did as suggested in the introduction and used a pen to create the reverse.


The exploded leaf shape led in turn to these seed heads. I do like working with exploded designs and had forgotten what a good start point they are for print blocks.

Looks good - when recovered (and caught up with JQs (still have three to do)) will give this a go - did discover some videos by googling...
