34. "A Whale of a time" Pattern: created by maker using an image of a humpback whale and her baby as inspiration. Story: This piece is an art quilt experiment that arose from an informal challenge among my friends to each create a whale. We could use any art form or materials. Some people made cookies, drawings, needlepoint, felt ornaments and I made an art quilt. I played with the collage quilting method so there are some raw edges on the body of the whales. It was a fun activity to continue exploring art quilting.
