The bird is all fusible but by cutting out the insides it feels and quilts better. The first time I labeled all the pieces in the middle then cut them all out so I couldn't see them. Now I mark close to the edge.
I lay the placement guide (the drawing full size) down, then parchment paper over that and can build the bird on the parchment and can see thru it to know where to put each piece. It comes together pretty easy actually.
Lots of quilting - here's the back
The words moon, sun,stars,fire and water are quilted in the sky.
I have the pattern done so now will make one more using the final draft of the pattern to make sure it's right.
Stay tuned. - hopefully I will have another Raven to show you made by a published pattern!
Stay warm this week end - around here it's supposed to be 40 below with the wind chill this week end.
We are finally getting our winter
