Finished and ahead of schedule!
I forgot to take a picture before I started. This is the first banner with the sky complete. Those few random yellow pieces are not attached at this point. I did that last of all.
Here we have the river banner with most of the ground pieces cut and I am starting to put them into place.
My trusty Continental Platinum Dry Iron purchased just for making banners. It has no steam holes on the plate to interfere with the fusing process.
The Grapes banner with a completed ground.
The river in works.
Here are the grapes before I decided that the lightest color was too light and stood out too much. I ended up putting a wash of purple paint on the fabric to darken it a bit.
I like the spikiness of the grape leaves, too.
After careful study, I decide they are finished.
I’ll call this one Sacred Waters.
Fruit of the Vine
They are beautiful! Congrats to you, Bethx
Do you sew on the banners as well, or just fuse the fabric?
I use Heat N Bond Ultra. You can’t sew through it easily. It is made to be permanent by itself. The only sewing on the banners is the casing sleeve at the top for hanging.
How do you get a nice finished edge on your banner?
They are cut with scissors. The Heat N Bond is stiff and makes a clean cut.
