After much math and forethought I cut out my pieces and laid them out.


Then I drew and cut out the spiral.


I appliqued the cut spiral pieces down, and added green fuzzy lines to separate the squares.  With my cat's support I hand quilted using a made up abstract organic pattern.


After hand quilting I machine quilted.  Finally I turned and finished the edges.

That is beautiful...but even the thought of figuring out how to make it (mathematically, I mean, seeing as how this is the one project we never did in school) nearly made my head smoke lol.  Nicely done.

Hah Fibonacci quilt.
Confession: I always preferred squat rectangles to those that followed the golden ratio-this is an exception though. Great work. Smiley
