Fibonacci number sequence

This is one of the quilts I designed using the Fibonacci Number Sequence and the Golden Rectangle.

I've just finished teaching my Fibonacci workshop to a very nice and enthusiastic group of ladies at Logans.

We were so engrosed in what we were doing I forgot to take photos. Some of the ladies elected to make a small version of this quilt and others designed their own - they are all going to be great quilts.

Did you know that if you add Fibonacci to your patchwork tool box, this simple number sequence - 1 2 3 5 8 13 etc can make a big difference to your ability to plan quilts that have good proportion and balance. It's not the be all and end of quilt design but it's another great tool to put into your patchwork tool box.

Let me know if you'd like to join or organise a workshop for next year.

Thanks Amanda for a fabulous class. I would highly recommend Fibonacci to anyone thinking of attending - it is not at all difficult and it helped me overcome my designing mental block. You are an excellent teacher and I loved your raw edge technique that doesn't look like raw edge.
