Judy Best’s and Bea Lee’s optical illusion quilts inspired me to see what would happen with the Fibonaaci series.

The Fibonacci series is a sequence of numbers that goes 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, …, where each number is the sum of the previous two before it.  When I was in college studying math and computer science, my computer science professor was fascinated with the Fibonacci series.  I must have written twenty programs on the series!

I created a block with the series up to eight and then put four together and played with different rotations using the bowtie pattern.  It goes off into infinity from the center in four different directions.

The title comes from my favorite Ziggy cartoon.  Ziggy is looking up at the sky and saying, “Infinity, where will it all end?”

For you mathematicians out there, since I put a border on it, it is countable infinity.
