This tutorial will hopefully show you how to make a fibonacci inspired rainbow quilt, with a finished size of 28x28 inches.
2 strips - 3 1/2 x 28 inches
6 strips - 2 1/2 x 28 inches
42 squares - 2 x 2 inches
for each colour (there are 7) cut
a - 7 x 2 inches
b - 4 1/2 x 2
c - 3 x 2
d - 2 x 2
e - 1 1/2 x 2
f - 1 x 2
g - 1 x 2
you will also need a 30 x 30 peice of wadding, a 30 x 30 piece of backing fabric, and fabric for the binding.
take each coloured strip, and to it sew one of the 42 white squares, using a 1/4 inch seam.
then lay out the pattern, this is the fun bit.
each line across has one of every size(letter) in that colour.
each line down has one of every size (letter), one of each colour.
think of a sudoko grid, there's only one of each in a line, and they run in sequence.
abcdefg - red
bcdefga - orange
cdefgab - yellow
defgabc - green
efgabcd - blue
fgabcde - indigo
gabcdef - violet
sew together all of the peices in each vertical strip
press the seams away from the white squares.
in between each strip insert one of the 2 1/2 x 28 white strips, and on the outer edges sew the wider 3 1/2 x 28 strips
presss seams away from the white strips, and then layer a square of wadding and a backing fabric (make both slightly larger 30x30), baste and quilt however you like. It would look very effective in vertical lines, or I'm going to stipple all the white areas, and leave the colours unquilted. Add a binding, I'm going to make a white binding. I'll show the finished quilt asap, in the meantime if you have any questions, ask me in the comments, or email me and I'll to help. I hope this makes sense to everyone, it's the first time I've written a tutorial.... If you make it I'd love to know!
