FreakieGeekie, Cicero came out great, and I love all of the little details! And, the little clover is cute, too. I keep forgetting that St. Patricks's Day is tomorrow...

Battle/Challenge:  March Pi Day
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Pi quilt
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: My son told me a year ago about a quilt he wanted, with the number Pi written out across it, and of course there's no place I know to buy something like that.  So I was forced to make it for his bday. I'm ridiculously proud of this quilt, so please forgive my rambling and copious pics.  I made the top from a sheet I bought at Walmart, and the bottom was a larger sheet from Goodwill.  First I drew a grid of 5 inch squares across the top. (Five inches coz that's what the bag for the batting said the maximum quilting distance was.) Then I created stencils that were 5 inch squares, centering the number on the stencil so that it would just fit into a square on the quilt, no further centering required.  Then I drew all the numbers on and hand painted every one.  All 238 of 'em.  Who knew that painting would make me feel like I'd been doing squats all day?  Maybe I earned a nicer backside! LOL!  Once all the numbers were painted on and dry (took 4 or 5 days to paint 'em all, BTW), I put the quilt bottom, batting and top together and stitched along the grid on my sewing machine, then bound the edges with contrasting quilt binding. Voila!  New quilt for a very happy birthday boy!

Thanks guys!  He's 17 yr old Junior, so you never know, it may actually see the inside of a dorm room before too much longer.  Wink
