Brain Pincushion From A Hilbert Curve

A friend of mine is obsessed with brains; if there was ever a zombie apocalypse, she would ask to be in their “special-interest group”. She also likes to sew, so for me the obvious thing to do was to make her a brain pincushion.

To me, the most evident way to construct a brain was to make a Hilbert Curve and wrap it around a ball of some kind. None of my Google searches for “hilbert curve brain” came up with any relevant results, so I’m forced to conclude that I’m the first person to use a Hilbert curve to approximate the wrinkled shape of a brain.
