Several local quilters started a project making a periodic table out of several quilts.  The artists have a website that shows the quilt pieces representing each element, along with an explanation.

The quilts will be on display at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead until November 13th.  Additionally, there will be a program about the quilt on Sunday from 2-5 p.m.

After looking through the project, I have to say that my favorites were Helium and Cesium.  Both were very pretty while conveying the idea.  (That, and Cesium had some major bling going on.)  I was also very amused by Arsenic, given how much I loved the movie Arsenic and Old Lace.

Which elements do you like?
