Whale Watching - This idea was inspired by a very artistic brick wall I saw. Right away I could see it turned into a quilt. I started by drawing some curvey horizonal lines and then filling in with skewed vertical lines. I realized right away that this would have to be foundation pieced. So, I redrew it on a large piece of packing paper, marked curves, numbered the horizonal strips, made a map and started cutting out the long horizonal strips. Then I just sewed scrap pieces one after the next. I tried to stay in the blue/grey/black/green families to help identify a whale. If you notice a natural eye just happened to appear. I thought it looked like a close up of a whale.
In quilting I only quilted the horizonal lines by couching silver metalic embroidery floss.
I'm not certain if I'm finished with this one yet.
