Art quilt day 3 third time lucky

The third pattern turned out to be a good size (thank goodness) and I was able to move on to making the template I will work to. It took several more hours to get to this stage. I decided to photograph it on my car as I don't have a large space in the house and I wanted the model to get a sense of the size the quilt will be. I think she should be able to do that either from the car or the oil cans ;) Of course the weather was perfect unil I took the paper outside, then the wind started gusting. Helpful.
I felt this was a good point to take a break and get back to my wholecloth. It seems I have got a lot quicker at the very dense fillers. That is great news. I would love to get this quilt finished (or at least quilted) before classes restart and I now think that might be possible.
