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.
