Welcome to the Quilting Board!

OR

1. My DIL is a new math teacher and we were discussing how she could decorate her classroom. I made her a Sudoko quilt a few years ago but can anyone think of any other "math related" quilting patterns. I thought about triangles and geometric shapes. Any ideas would be appreciated.

2. I cannot think of one at this time but I usually can google.com and find some patterns. Have you tried to google yet?

3. I did google and found tessalations. There are quite a few quilt patterns that include tessalations and I have at least one of them.

4. Maybe applique or embroider various math symbols on blocks and make a quilt with them?

5. Would you be interested in doing a quilt with all the different symbols? Pi, angles, algebra, etc. Just have them floating all over the top of the quilt.

6. Math quilts are a passion of mine. Some excellent resources are:
The Club EQ Math Quilt challenge results

Elainne Ellison's quilts are amazing http://www.mathematicalquilts.com/
Two of the best tesellation sites are
http://library.thinkquest.org/16661/
and http://www.tessellations.org/
And the best of all..design your own tessellation here

Be sure to include Fibonacci.

7. I made a quilt using the Fibonaci number system ie 1-2-3-5-8-13 etc and it looks great

8. I have always liked the cubes shown in the one block wonder books! I hope to do an entire quilt (or maybe a wall hanging) with those 3D blocks.

9. Ghostrider, thanks for these links! Those are great ideas!

10. These are the result of a weeklong unit on tessellations & symmetry I did w/3 - 7th gr. math classes a couple months ago.

11. Soduko comes to mind.

12. Wow! Thank you to everyone for the great ideas. I will run all these by her and see if anything pops out. I kind of like the idea of the kids designing tessalation blocks for me to make up for them. My DIL is not a quilter and has limited sewing skills--she is good at math!

13. I bought a fabric with math facts on in a quilt shop in Park Rapids, MN. I think it is subtraction problems. maybe you can find it on the net

14. Since I am definitely NOT a math person, the only thing that came to my mind was a 'Pi are not square, Pi are round' quilt. Betcha can guess what kind of grades I got in Algebra.

15. I've seen a couple people mention suduko quilt patterns. What are those? I love suduko puzzls.

Those are Great !!!! Are the blocks hand colored by the Kids??
and could be raffled off, for math club or class trip.
What ever you choose to do Good Luck !!
