|Harry the Heron has been fabricated and fused onto baking parchment.|
I wanted to make the coneflowers, one of my favorite images to use in quilts; look Egyptian. So I drew them to fit in a diamond shape to become more angular.
|A left-over Egyptian coneflower.|
|Here is Harry now standing among the papyrus and coneflowers.|
Why is Harry still pressed on baking parchment? Because at this point in the design phase I want to be free to move the all elements around until I am completely sure everything is in the right spot. His beak, feathers and legs are too long and narrow to be able to shift around; so he stayed on paper until it was time to fuse everything on permanently.
Tune in next time, to see if Harry gets glued on!
