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!
The quilting on this is positively gorgeous down to the last Pi details throughout. I did give you credit, but just so you know, I used a photo of yours in one of my blog posts. It combined quilting and Pi so marvelously I could not pass it up. You can see it in context at http://wanderorponder.blogspot.com/2014/03/ponder-post-pi-day.html
I would like to link to your post in an article I’m writting for Pi day 2017. Would that be all right with you? I think your quilt is so fun, and I love that you quilted with the Pi symbol! Very cool!
