New year, bigger ambitions... literally. This whale-monster quilt is going to be taller than my work table, and almost as wide. For size comparison, Houseboats was exactly the size of the table top pictured (before the quilting process shrunk it down a little).
The paper template is going to be the size of the whale; it helps me work on the background knowing what's going to get covered up. One thing I'm looking forward to not covering up is the clouds and lightning.
