It's time once again for the Blogger's Quilt Festival, where all of us who wish we were in Houston console ourselves with our own quilt show. Which is totally better that Houston anyway, right? Maybe ;)
Every year it seems I am liking up my latest do. Good Stitches quilt for the show, but they really are usually my favorites and the ones I am most proud of. This year is no exception. I designed this block based on the Fibonacci Sequence and the final quilt is called "Distortions" after the illusion of curves it creates. You can read my tutorial for the block with explanations of the sequence and its significance here.
I asked my group members for blocks made in solid, boy-friendly colors and they delivered handily. I didn't want to detract from the illusion is a lot of quilting so instead I used an invisible thread to try to amplify the curves.
For the backing I used the thematically-appropriate IKEA Numbers fabrics and a couple of stray blocks.
The quilt has since been sent to "My Very Own Blanket" a charity that provides quilts for children in foster care. Thanks, as ever, to my wonderful do. Good Stitches Circle!
I am linking up this quilt in the "Modern" category. You can see my other entry in the "Large Quilt Category" here.
