The first quilt that I am entering in Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival is my Pi Quilt in the lap quilt division.
Both my husband and myself are engineers so for his birthday I knew that wanted to make a special math type quilt for him, thus design for the Pi Quilt was born. I wanted to paper piece the numbers and could not find a pattern of numbers I liked so I set off to make my own.
The resultant quilt contains 49 digits of Pi (including the period) with the numbers formed from over 700 individual pieces of fabric (and yes, about half way through I realized how insane this was!) I sashed the numbers in Kona white and added some borders with the Architextures line from Carolyn Friedlander.
For the quilting, I added a swirled vine pattern to the sashing to make the numbers stand out and a sharp line meandering pattern to the borders.
For any other math lovers / nerds / engineers out there (or a quilter with one of those in their lives), I have the pattern for the Pi Quilt listed for free in craftsy. The pattern works with any 3" x 5" numbers, but I also have my paper pieced numbers pattern (including three different sizes of numbers) listed on craftsy and etsy.
Quilt Measurements: 51.5" x 61.5"
