I am not a math person, but I have a weird obsession with the Fibonacci Sequence. There is something about this amazing series of numbers that create some of the most beautiful patterns in nature, that resonates with me. In fact, one of the most successful pick-up lines from my single days was “Hey, I just painted the Fibonacci Sequence on my wall, want to come check it out?”
Perhaps that is why I am drawn to the Log Cabin Block. This classic quilt block is almost, but not quite a fabric version of the Fibonacci Sequence.
Here is a picture of the completed 1930’s Log Cabin that I am working on, look at how the principles of the Sequence are represented:
I’ve been working on the quilt in stages, adding each section of fabric to the remaining 11 blocks, on piece at a time. Here is the block with four pieces:
Eventually, I’d love to do a true Fibonacci Quilt, just to see what it would look like!
