Now For the Melting Out

The purpose of using the organza is not just to hold together the snippets underneath but now with another layer of organza under the little fish I used a soldering iron to trace around the fish and melt away the organza with a seal. I hadn't used this technique before and it took a bit of getting used to. It works best with the soldering iron as close to 90 degrees to the fabric as possible. I left open the area from the under fin to the tail so I could slightly pad the body of the fish. You will have to wait to see the completed quilt as this one is going into another challenge = the Aotearoa quilt challenge with the theme silver. This will be the last challenge for 2019 and I will concentrate now on finishing some of the things I have underway but not quite finished.
