Look what happens.........

..... when I start playing on QuiltPro.

my friend Quilthaze and I were talking about using the Fibonnacci Sequence to design a quilt. The above pictures show what happened when I took a normal Jacob's Ladder block and redrew it using the Fibonnacci Sequence. Both of the above "quilts" are made of 4 blocks by 4 blocks. You can see what Quilthaze took a different approach, and you can see what she came up with on her website.


  1. Fibonnacci Sequence this way lies madness! (and you don't have to ask me how I know this . . . .)

  2. wow! I see I have a lot more work to do!

  3. I never would have thought of applying Fibonnacci to quilting!

  4. This way lies madness.... says Bilbo. Too late, say I, I've already got there!
    Quilthaze, I just thought it was so interesting how we both took the same idea and ran in different directions with it.

    Lynn, don't ask me how we got to that starting point, we just did, somehow. Quilthaze started it!!

  5. I'll agree with the madness but they do make stunning quilts. Are you going to try to make them?

  6. Yes Heather, at some point I want to make both of them, but my "to-do" list is
    V E R Y long

    Thanks for visiting my site by the way. I hope you enjoyed it and will be back,

  7. HI Sue,
    My husband has long been fascinated and is very good with numbers. I have intended to make a quilt using the golden ratio. I have a book called Mathematical Quilts that is a math teacher's book - I don't have Quilt PRo or EQ6 but some day I will figure out a design to make a wall hanging for my spouse. It has been floating around back there - perhaps some day. I loved seeing your fibonacci blocks. I will go and visit your friends site too.
    Warmest regards,

  8. Hi Sue,

    Thanks for dropping by my blog, I have been looking for instructions on Fibonacci technique since my sister told me about it. She has a book, but it is unavailable at present. I love the look of the quilts you have made, and I would love to make my own, but my brain will not come to the party with the designing of it. Are you able to give me any help in this

  9. An addit to previous post. I have just had a close look at the two quilts, and can now see how they are done. Now I think I will be able to make my own pattern, so look for a pic in about 2 years maybe (got lots of other things to make while constructing the pattern) lol

  10. Wow, that's so trippy! I've never even heard of Fibonacci. My brain is growing and it's already 7:27 am and... where is my coffee?


I love to receive your comments, so please do leave them and wherever possible I will reply to you by email.
