TGIFF! - Fibonacci Is Not Random - Part One

Welcome to TGIFF! I'm so happy to say that I've finished repairing the last of my Fibonacci Is Not Random triptych. Woo hoo! Even though it's the last one I've fixed, it's actually called Part One.


Like its sisters Part Two and Part Three, this wallhanging uses block measurements from the Fibonacci sequence up to 13" -- 1", 2", 3", 5", 8" and 13".  It was made back in 2003-ish for our old dining room. It was damaged a few years later so has sat waiting in my WIP pile to be fixed.


For the quilting, I used Aurifil # 2312 and used a walking foot quilting technique that I learned from Heather Lair. I decided that I wanted circles to be prominent on this piece for a sort of crop circle effect. I really love this style of quilting.


The back gives you a better idea of the quilting.


This quilt is 12.25" by 31", just like Part Three. I lost 3/4" on the width and 1/2" on the height from the tighter quilting.


Why do I find Fibonacci numbers so interesting? This short TED Talk by Arthur Benjamin shares what's makes this sequence so cool.

  1. So glad your wall hangings are restored -- and even improved upon! -- since their run-in with the crown molding caulk. I really enjoyed learning more about the inspiration behind these unique pieces. One fewer WIP means you get to celebrate by starting a new WIP, right? : )

  14. I think Fibonacci is a cool concept and I think it's cooler that you made it into a quilt!

  16. What a beautiful hanging - love it all and especially the colours. I too am interested in Fibonacci and used it in a quilt some time ago but have not used it for a while. xx
