Sunday Quilt Inspiration: MATH SHAPES

As I was looking at quilts in the Monroe quilt show yesterday, I realized that some of my favorites would require lots of math. This is because they use typical math shapes. Since I'm always looking for ideas for quilt inspiration, I added math shapes to the list. In desperate times, I can go right to the list.

I'm not really desperate tonight, but I want to pursue the idea of using math shapes in quilting. So let's start by taking a look at how they're used in everyday items.
