Sew What?

Nerdy crafters really are the best. The best what? The best at living, obviously. This craft, which is nothing short of beautiful, is a full-sized quilt made by Kate Findlay and was inspired by the Large Hadron Collider. She’s created a series of quilts that all use the massive physics experiment as the aesthetic guide for the patterns and prints. They’re pretty and strange and so very geeky.

“I’ve been living and dreaming and sleeping and eating hadron colliders,” she told Symmetry Magazine.  Bet she’s read this book (I hope she’s read it. It’s so good! And so weird).

Anyway, I like it. Even if the LHC can’t actually make particles travel faster than the speed of light. Oh well, maybe it’s for the best…
