Direction for the New Year

I'm joining the challenge, " Working in a Series" lead by Vicki Welsh. I've always been interested in working my way through a book's exercises in a subject I'm interested in. I've done this with a bread making recipe book on Cooks' Talk years ago where we all chose a book to cook our way through and reported on the recipes' successes and failures. It was fun and I got to love my book even more for the great recipes I wouldn't have tried otherwise.
So that is what I have chosen to do for working in a series, and Jane Dunnewold's book, "Art Cloth, a guide to surface design for fabric" is my choice. I purchased this book many years ago at a quilt show not knowing when I would get a chance to actually use it. Now is my chance. Let's have some fun.

When Last Seen

An update on the completed quilt from the HST posts below; it has been finished for some time but I cannot get far enough away from it for a picture, it's 85 x 85. If I ever manage to shoot it, I will post the picture. What I didn't realize at the outset of that project was the enormous amount of seam matching - every 1.5 inches!! I also have left over pieces and have designed a quilt to use them up. Actually, have designed 2 and no final decision has been made yet.
