Anyone who has seen my library, or my quilts, knows I've been on a decade-long journey of learning about tilings, thanks to Jacob introducing me to aperiodic tilings and running away giggling as the results detonated in my brain. Along the way, it led to Chaos Theory, a quilt for Earl and Lynette, based on the tessellation origami that Andy, a friend of theirs, had given them as a wedding present:
Sea Shanty is the third in a series of (I think) four Pride-themed quilts I'm planning to execute. It won't be as brassy or bold as its cousins, Queer as Fuck and This Heart Fights The Good Fight, but it's for another friend who finds comfort and meaning in the idea of owning a Pride-themed quilt.
I had assumed my life would never again contain concepts like 'anniversaries' and to be wrong brings astonishment, even to this very Pi day. The improbability of it takes my breath away, if I pause to think about it.
