Finding a piece of fabric with interesting mathematical designs (like the logarithmic spiral) was challenging. My very first mathematical quilt was based on the Golden Rectangle with the embedded Fibonacci spiral.
Celebrating Waclaw Sierpinski's amazing fractal design was fun for me. My students thought the design was very pleasing also. One could teach a number of fractal lessons using this jumper. I know because I did!
My classes also studied the Koch Curve and its properties. Of course, I wore the jumper as a springboard for the fractal lessons.
According to Herbert Wills III, Leonardo was fascinated with dissections. This curvilinear pattern actually is a hinged dissection. The shape can be cut and moved to make a rectangle. This shape has been used in one of my mathematical shapes as a tribute to Leonardo daVinci.
