To quilty engineers and scientists and Pi lovers everywhere,
Happy Pi Day!
During college, Pi day was always celebrated (I went to Carnegie Mellon University, a super nerdy engineering school). People spent most of the night writing out the thousands of digits of pi on the sidewalks all through the campus. I always try to celebrate pi day now with a celebration including some pie.
This year is especially exciting being the year 2015. The date 3/14/15 contains the first 5 digits of pi, 3.1415. At 9:26 am or pm, the date will be 3/14/15 9:26, 7 digits of pi, 3.1415926! That alone is worth an extra piece of pie!
Two years ago, I made a Pi quilt for my husband containing 49 paper pieced digits of Pi and I thought that I would post it again for the occasion.
Go have a piece of pie today to celebrate Pi Day :)
