Kellie Kutkey made Apple Pi in March 2001 to hang in her Portland, Oregon classroom. It is 22" by 22" (the quilt, not the classroom).
While similar to Mona Wilkerson's Traditional as Apple Pi (below), the two quilts were created independently. If the two quilts were set side by side, one might wonder what 2 pi are. (Humor flag: 2 pi r is 2 times pi times the circle radius, i.e., the circumference.)
Mona Wilkerson made Traditional as Apple Pi in response to a quilt challenge by National Online Quilters in the spring of 1998. It is 24" by 24" because, as she writes, "I just knew that pi had to be square."
Sharon Benton of Redmond, WA made Pi Are Square,
an original design inspired by Gayle Bryan's challenge class in March
1998. The theme for this challenge was Circles and Squares. Sharon says
she works as a Technical Editor, but plays as a quilter. She has been
quilting since about 1994 and enjoys creating original contemporary designs.
Pi Are Square is 32-1/2" by 18", and is machine pieced and quilted.
