Fibonacci Series Quilt

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 and thought it

was both beautiful and would appeal to Frances on a number

of levels.
