    This is Chapter 4 of Figuring Fibers, edited by Carolyn Yackel and sarah-marie belcastro.

    This self-contained chapter contains directions for a complete project in a downloadable PDF file. You may also purchase the entire volume or see a list of all chapters available for individual purchase.

    Background for crafters:

    Two basic square quilt blocks involving quarter circles in the corners of the squares are used in various quilting patterns. Perhaps the more common is the square with a quarter circle in a contrasting color in one corner, commonly called a Drunkard's Path quilt block. This chapter focuses on the other pattern for a single square. It involves two quarter-circle strips in opposing corners that connect adjacent sides. Using a method involving simply laying out the quilt blocks and then rotating some of them, we solve the mystery of creating a quilt with a single path through the interior squares of a quilt. The folklore states that the method to create such a quilt is a secret passed from quiltmaker to quiltmaker; that secret is revealed in this chapter.

    About Figuring Fibers:

    Pick up this book and dive into one of eight chapters relating mathematics to fiber arts! Amazing exposition transports any interested person on a mathematical exploration that is rigorous enough to capture the hearts of mathematicians. The zenith of creativity is achieved as readers are led to knit, crochet, quilt, or sew a project specifically designed to illuminate the mathematics through its physical realization. The beautiful finished pieces provide a visual understanding of the mathematics that can be shared with those who view them. If you love mathematics or fiber arts, this book is for you!

    Readership

    Undergraduate and graduate students and researchers interested in mathematical themes in needlework and fiber arts (e.g. crocheting, knitting, quilting).
