My first quilt (that I finished) was to buy 1.25 yard of purple (That’s a square of 45” wide material), and a half-yard each of red, blue, yellow, and green batik prints, and did four fibonacci quarters for the front: Cut a 1” square with 1/4” seam allowance, sew on another square, add a 2” square, a 3” square, a 5” square, an 8” square, a 13” square, and 22” by what little was needed to make the quarter square. Alternate colors, keep spiraling them the same direction... sewed those four squares together, sandwiched with the solid purple back... pin basted, and erk: Dropped feed dogs on the machine to draw in each section! I used Color with color thread on the front, and a nice gold in the bobbin thread for the back purple side. It worked! And is loved & much used these six years on...
