Remember this beauty?
While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the judges seemed to like my snowflakes/stars as well, because it was choosen to be displayed in the “Mathematical Quilts” exhibition. From 93 submitted quilts for this challenge, 24 were selected for exhibition. 🙂 So a couple of days ago, I carefully wrapped it up, put it in a parcel and sent it away to have some fun and travel for the next months together with 23 of its brethren. When I get it back, it certainly will be a well-travelled quilt!
The first stop will be at Erlangen at the German Mathematician’s Association’s conference from September 15 till September 19. There will be further places where the exhibition will be shown next spring, but the details are not completely clear yet. I’ll keep you updated as soon as I find things out!
