Do you hate math? At the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, students are using their math skills and the art of sewing to create quilts. We wish they taught this when we were in school.

What a wonderful course. These young students are learning a lot more than applied mathematics. I am amazed how well they learned about color and its placement in a complex design; the use of a sewing machine; and their realization that they are learning an enjoyable life long skill. Their enthusiasm is heart warming. And this is only their first quilt! Hats off to their professor!

I wish they had taught this when I was in school. I may not have been so phobic about math. And I would have been a quilter a lot sooner.

Good for the girls that they’re learning and enjoying, but that seems like middle school math to me, not math that is college level! Just for reference, I took precalculus in 12th grade here in NY in the late 1960’s and my kids took a similar program when they were in HS. Glad to see how quilting is being promoted.
