Default Is it crazy to do king-sized paper piecing?

Hi All! My plan is to make a king-sized quilt in 2021. Iíll be using batiks for the first time. Also, first king size quilt. I will be making a Storm at Sea. I donít have a pattern. I found a picture and I figured I would just make the 8x8 and 8x4 and 4x 4 blocks on paper myself and do paper piecing for the first time.

But now Iím starting to doubt myself. It seems like paper piecing wastes a lot if fabric, and a king-sized quilt already uses tons of fabric. But I canít seem to find a pattern online that uses larger sized blocks. They all seem to be small blocks. I want to do larger blocks to keep it proportional to the larger quilt.

Am I crazy to do this as a paper piecing project?
