Series 3 based on a longer block.

Design 9: A new Fibonacci block, photocopied with darkest ends placed together.

Design 10: The above block cut into equal width strips and reassembled with alternate strips slightly higher to form a fractured design.

The cushion design above was based on a postcard of Amsterdam.  The image showed a bridge with the buildings along the canal reflected in the water.  I used ideas from a book on bargello patchwork to create the design.  As I worked on Design 10 I was reminded of this cushion, although the width of the fabric strips do not conform to the Fibonicci Sequence but try to follow the colour proportions in the image.  The position of the fabric strips is also adjusted much more than in the paper sample.

Design 11: Creating a log cabin design using strips from Design 10.  I wove some of the strips through each other which disguises the strip's pattern.
