Numbers - Bloggers Quilt Festival

 Amy is back with this year's Blogger's Quilt Festival.

Every year Amy hosts a wonderful link-up where quilters can link-up two of their favorite quilts in a virtual quilt show.  It is so much fun to see what everyone is doing and visit new blogs.

My first entry is my quilt Playful which I posted about yesterday.

Today, I wanted to share my wall-hanging quilt called Numbers.

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 maps to a number in the series.

The quilt finishes at 40'' square and the fabrics are all American Made Brand solids. 

My son is a math and computer geek and this quilt was perfect for him.  It hangs on his apartment wall and I get to see it each weekend when we Skype.

If you a new visitor to my blog, welcome!  I hope you'll stick around a bit and visit.  I've some fun things going on right now.

One Monthly Goal is a monthly link-up party where you declare you sewing goal for the month. This could be to create a few blocks, add on a binding - whatever it takes to make progress on your sewing projects.  You can read more about it here - come link up in October!

The 3rd annual Elm Street Quilts Bag It event just began. There will be 3 months of fun including tutorials and designers spotlights on various bags to encourage handmade for the holidays.  

Making a bag - any bag, doesn't have to be from my tutorials - earns you entries to win some absolutely fabulous prizes from sponsors.  Don't miss this event - help me spread the word - tell your friends!

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Oh, I'm a lover of math!! I love all the connections to the Fibonacci series you tied in! Fabulous indeed!
