This is a traditional "Storm at Sea" pattern in two different size scales with a very large appliqu� addition of an octopus. The suction cups on the tentacles of the octopus are hand appliqu�d letters of the alphabet that spell out 8 different consequences of global climate change relating to the oceans.

The quilting stitches are done in embroidery thread and spell out quotations from Al Gore's book An Inconvenient Truth. Fabrics used include a noren (Japanese door curtain) of Hokusai's The Great Wave, underwater-theme fabrics that I hand stenciled, and commercially printed fabric.
