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 a variety of sludgy, pastel shades. 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". I made two different sets of strips (set A and set B). The strip-pieced fabric was then cross cut into strips in the same proportions, and these strips were alternated between set A and set B, so some of the seams line up and other do not. These strips were sewn together until they formed a 30.5" square.

Other fabrics from my gradations collection complete the pieced back. 

This piece is quilted in spiraling feather patterns stitched with white, top-stitching thread. The negative spaces are quilted with a darker, mauve-colored thread in all-over pattern of spirals.
