PI Quilt

Standard

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!
