A few weeks ago my friend Ana brought a very special quilt to me for quilting. I loved this quilt because of all the thought — not just numerical — that she put into it. It was for a friend who is very special to her. She related to me that her friend had won a PI contest at IU. She was able to recite PI out to several decimals. Ana went to great pains on this quilt to be sure her numbers were accurate. I enjoyed working on this quilt because she told me the story behind it–and the purple didn’t hurt either!
I knew exactly how I was going to quilt this when I saw it but since Ana gave me complete artistic freedom I decided to surprise her. I meandered with small loops and strategically placed PI symbols throughout the quilt.
I love it when I can do something unique that finishes the quilt with a little pizazz. I’m told Ana’s friend loved it and spotted the symbols right away.
Also something to note: even with all of those pieced numbers, Ana’s quilt top laid perfectly flat! She does such good work. Thank you, Ana!
