I've always enjoyed patterns and maths which I think is why I was drawn to quilting but wasn't going to bother with a Fibonacci sample for C&G. I thought there was too much emphasis on the Fibonacci sequence but now I've finished this little sample I'm really quite please with it!

This morning I went to Harrogate to buy cotton sheeting for dyeing from the Remnant House. I called into a newsagent around the corner and found a quilt magazine which I haven't seen before - Irish Quilting. I was very impressed so bought a copy. It's a thick glossy magazine, very different from the British magazines, with some lovely quilts and very clear instructions. It costs £5.20 and published every 2 months so I think I'll be looking out for it in future.


  1. Have you ever thought of taking a traditional block and changing it according to Fibonnaci rules? I've done it with a Jacob's Ladder block, on the computer and then drawn it up as a quilt and would like to make it up in real life. It's on my to-do-one-day-when-I-have-time list!

  2. Sounds interesting - I will have to have a play in Electric Quilt!
