Design Concept

The design for this quilt is based on the orderly progressions of scale, observed in nature by thirteenth century mathematician Leonard Fibonacci. This quilt, including the back was made from leftover strips of fabric from my Gradations collection from Benartex. My goal in this quilt was to use bits of yellow along with shades of blue. The strips were cut into 1.5", 2.5", 3.5" & 5.5" widths to finish in the Fibonacci proportions (1-2-3-5) when sewn together. Each strip was chosen to provide value contrast with the adjoining strip. They were sewn together until the width equaled 30.5". The strip-pieced fabric was cross cut into strips in the same proportions, and every other strip was rotated 180 degrees, so some of the seams line up and other do not. These strips were sewn together until they formed a 30.5" square. One strip was left and this runs diagonally across the back of the quilt, with other fabrics from my gradations collection completing the back.  This piece is quilted in spiraling feather patterns stitched with fluorescent yellow top-stitching thread. The negative spaces are quilted with a medium grey #60 thread in all-over fan patterns.
