Happy 3.141592653 [Pi] Day!

Today, 3.14.15, is Pi Day. Pi, the Greek letter Π, is the symbol for the mathematical ratio between a circle's circumference and its diameter, or 3.141592653… (carried out to a trillion+ digits past the decimal point). At 26 minutes and 53 seconds after 9 am (or pm), the date and time will represent the first 10 digits of Pi.

Let's celebrate Pi Day looking at the use of circles in quilting and the fiber arts.
