1998. Machine pieced and hand quilted. 28 inches by 28 inches.

I made this as a retirement gift for my office partner, who chose the colors.

The design, called the husan-thu, is an ancient Chinese "proof without words" of the Pythagorean Theorem.

In January 2010, the quilt was featured on the cover of The College Mathematics Journal.
