{Filled} : a finished quilt

My mom has been waiting - semi patiently - for me to post these pictures.


I finished my Women's Advent Tea quilt, for their raffel, just a few days before it was needed and about 12 hours before I started the stomach flu.

I chose to name the quilt {Filled} as that is how you feel when you're with such a great group of women.


 I used my Moda Figgy Pudding that I love.


And tried to go for a design that was fun, modern, and would also appeal to the more traditional women as well.


I saw somebody's "Jelly Filled" quilt online (pattern by Camille) and thought it would be a great solution.  Especially since I had a few Figgy Pudding Jelly rolls left that had been used as table decorations last year.


My favorite, cute winter Munki prints show up as little surpises.


The chocolate brown print was the perfect binding to frame the whole thing.


I had math fun with the back - I did fibonacci stripes.  Fibonacci really does give a nicely balanced/proportioned sequence of stripes.


At 58" x 58" it turned out to be a great lap quilt.  I hope it's enjoyed all winter long by the woman who won it at the raffle.

Thanks for the info on the Fibonacci numbers - I have a niece who's a math whiz, and I think I'll make her a pillow using the sequence.....
