Fibonacci sequence and quilting

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
Mother Teresa

The quilt guild that I belong to is very involved in making quilts and other items for charity.  We support several local non profits – Family Promise, YWCA, school districts needy program, provide quilts for police officer and fire vehicles for frightened children.  We have local businesses that donate fabric and also have individuals that donate to our group.  I recently went “shopping” at the guild’s stash and picked up several yards of fabric to make some quilts.

I have been wanting to try out a quilt designed around the Fibonacci sequence.  1, 2, 3, 5, 8.  These probably weren’t the most ideal fabrics, but the process was still fun and creative.  I carried the 2 and 3 over into the border also.




The top is 55×72 inches and was machine pieced.  I still have several yards of these fabrics left, so I will have to devise a way to put them together!
