I made this wall hanging as a Christmas gift for my son to add some color to his apartment walls. The fabrics are all American Made Brand solids, some of them snatched immediately from a fat quarter pack I won from the Clothworks blog.
The quilt is a Fibonacci quilt. The dimensions of the blocks are part of the Fibonacci series (1, 1, 2, 3, 5 ...). For the quilting, each block is quilted differently in matching thread. The number of quilting lines crossing the block also mape to a number in the series.
Lots of quilts are fun to make. If they aren't fun, we ought to put them aside.
But this one was loads of fun.
I so much enjoying inserting the pop of red into the quilt. It is my favorite part.
My son is a math and computer geek and this quilt was perfect for him. It finished at 40'' square and I know he was excited to hang it up in his apartment.
The binding was finished on Christmas Eve and was wrapped and ready under the tree Christmas morning. It was my second to last finish of 2016. Awesome was the last finish.
One more thing. I have three kids and I always want to have something handmade for them under the tree. I am lucky that they really appreciate anything that I make. My son got this quilt, Numbers. One daughter got Awesome and the other got this pillow for her dorm. Everyone was happy, especially me.
I'll be linking up my finish with Main Crush Monday's, Sew Cute Tuesdays, Freemotion by the River, WIP Wednesday's, Let's Bee Social, Midweek Makers. Fabric Frenzy Friday, TGIFF, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.
Have a wonderful day! Patty
