Design Concept

To me, a garden represents a quiet place where the spirit can rest. In FIBONACCI'S GARDEN a profusion of lush and vibrant life was created by painting manipulated cotton fabric with fiber reactive dyes. The lattice is pieced from two fabrics. One is striated, and painted in a progression of Autumn hues. The other was manipulated into spirals, and painted with vibrant colors to create the illusion of floral and leaf forms. The two fabrics were cut into strips and pieced in the orderly progressions, observed in nature by thirteenth century mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci. A series of circles represent the centering of the mind and spirit that occurs in the garden. The circles are graduated in both size and color, and arc across the surface of the lattice in a diagonal compound curve.

The machine quilting was done with top stitching thread which shows up clearly against the background. It forms patterns of organic leaves, flowers, and the spirals of unfolding life, over the orderly geometry of the pieced design. All of the quilting was done freehand with no marking of the quilt top. This kind of quilting is like doodling. It's patterns are as distinct to the individual quilter as handwriting or a signature.

On the back of the quilt is a fabric painted in clear color washes. Against this uncluttered background, the quilted design shows clearly.
