Fibonacci and Springsteen inspire free-motion quilting

During Show and Tell at a recent guild meeting, my friend Janet showed us her finished quilt based on the Fibonacci series. Remember Fibonacci from high school math class?
Janet's Fibonacci Series quilt.
It was a quite a large quilt, as those numbers get big quickly... 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55!
She started free-motion quilting it, but because of the large size, she was running low on ideas for quilting motifs.

How about the Fibonacci sequence numbers? 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 ...

 and state abbreviations... KY, CO, GA, IL, IN, KS...

Take out the iPod and do some free-motion to music... yes! Why not quilt the song lyrics?
"Baby, we were born to run... "
