  91. Jackie,
    Like others, I think that Helix is a wonderful quilt design. How very fun- it would be a great quilt design for my husband who loves mathematical concepts- I have often thought about doing one that has the Golden Ratio or Fibonnaci number sequences. The Helix reminds me of those concepts.
