FauxAlbum.one

As I was anticipating actually constructing a formal quilt work, as opposed to problem solving the potential for doing so, I was talking with my daughter Katy about a strategy I had been thinking of implementing in order to practice the actual fundamentals of construction.  What I needed was an image to work with that allowed me to apply necessary techniques, but held some high degree of interest.  Katy creatively and intuitively suggested album covers.  This Faux.Album_One is the completion of the first in a potential series of these constructions.
