paper piecing: Quilt For Your Inner Genius

Pi 5" paper pieced pattern!
5″ Pi pattern only on etsy

Living in a house full of incredibly smart people, it was only a matter of time until their interests started bleeding into my crafting.  There have been cross-overs before with all sorts of fandom paraphanelia, from Star Trek to X-Men.

Now, it’s math.

I mean really, who doesn’t need a paper pieced Pi?

Alright, alright, it was my 11 year old son’s idea!  Happy now?

And for the curious…

From Wikipedia:

Pi or π is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any circle‘s circumference to its diameter in Euclidean space; this is the same value as the ratio of a circle’s area to the square of its radius. The symbol π was first proposed by the Welsh mathematician William Jones in 1706. It is approximately equal to 3.14159 in the usual decimal notation

    Ohhhhh – love this and being the dorky English major that I was – I also love the alliteration one can draw here…. PIECED PI vs a PIECE OF PIE ~ too clever…

      Hehe, it was my 11 year old’s idea. He was obsessed with Pi last year and memorized it to 20+ digits. I’m planning on making something for him with the block. 😀
