I am a member of a Facebook group Quilt Club Australia, one of the members posted about Fibonacci Grid. I have heard of the grid in the past but never fully understood it or the principal of using it in quilting. The Wikipedia definition the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.
Wow just thinking about this gave me a headache. In the end I Googled images of the fibonacci grid for quilt borders and was able to find a copy of the chart. The chart made it much easier to understand
The chart is designed for use when planning your quilts If you use the chart in the planning stages your quilt design will have a well balanced appearance. I decided I needed to test the theory out. I applied the recommended borders for an 8 inch block to one of my EQ7 designs.

My EQ7 Designs before I added the Fabonacci theory
This is the same quilt after I had applied the theory. What do you think is it more balanced?
