Playing with Fibonacci
Wonky Shoo Fly
I was reading virtualquilter.wordpress.com the other day. Judy was using Fibonacci series numbers to determine sizes for her quilt borders. I started wondering, what if Fibonacci numbers were used to determine block proportions? So today I am going to redesign a Shoo Fly block using Fibonacci proportions and see what turns up.
I am not going to explain Fibonacci numbers, you can find that elsewhere. I am only going to tell you that they are the numbers in this sequence: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, etc.
2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, etc.)?
I get a wonky looking Shoo Fly block.
The Shoo Fly block has taken on a totally new and exciting look.
