When I first began working on the Art Quilt "Someone Found" I cut 10 X 17"X17" panels of cotton fabric after I had designed several decorative quilt blocks patterns...
The set that I chose, if you go to the photo of the cover of the book and start with the design at top right called Annette's Purple Moth, then the next if your eyes go down from there is Alex's Love. Keep going in a clockwise direction is Lily of the Valley, Helen's Lily, Ferns, Shadow Ferns, Tulips, Hummingbird, Windswept Trees & Lindsey's Dragon.
All of the blocks that I painted on "Someone Found" are in this small book.
When I decided to use the 10 blocks the way I did, I discovered that each design was able to be turned and could possibly create at least 7 more patterns.(By reversing the pattern images you can have the designs going the other way as well) This is the cool thing with these decorative patterns...PLUS when you choose the colours that you want in the design, again you are creating your own block and opening up all sorts of possibilities.

The Art Quilt " Someone Found" is a Story Quilt about Cynthia Ann Parker in Texas 1836 at the age of 9 was kidnapped, adopted and lived with the Comanche for 24 years .
Cynthia Naduah ( Someone Found) married a warrior and had three children, her eldest born Quanah Parker was considered the greatest Comanche Chief. Naduah came from Scottish/Irish decent, what I was attempting to show is the contrast of cultures, where the traditions blend together to create one.
