Fibonacci Series Quilt

    Newer Older

    Front of the quilt before binding.

    I made this quilt for the Pario Pannus Swap.

    The quilt is based on the Fibonacci Series, which is a pattern where
    the current value is calculated as the sum of the previous 2 values
    (ie it progresses as 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 etc etc).

    It was then quilted by tracing the outline of a dinner plate towards
    the middle of the 'rainbow'. I then used a walking foot to ripple
    that line both outwards and inwards. The quilting did distort the
    quilt quite a bit, causing it to bow in the middle but about 3/4". It
    was very hard to then square up the quilt for binding!

    I can't take credit for the idea as I saw a similar quilt in Flickr
    www.flickr.com/photos/13777424@N04/2449104792/ and thought it
    was both beautiful and would appeal to Frances on a number
    of levels.

      Very nice and I love the circle quilting combined with the straight lines of the piecing!
