A New Map

Quilting Arts has a new challenge called 'Map It Out'.  I thought it would be fun to enter and I already had a background to use.  

A while ago I had printed out map pages onto fabric and had some leftover pages that I decided to cut and sew and recut and stitch back up again.   After that was done, I added some bright 'streets' to my project.  


I wasn't quite sure what to do about binding.  I had considered turning it back, but then decided on a bright orange that was already in the quilt.   

My friend got me the coolest binding clips for Christmas and they were great to use.  I highly recommend them.  They went on fast and were easy to work with.   I wonder if it is rude to ask her for a bunch more for my birthday=)


I will show a picture of the finished quilt on my next post.

After all that work, I took a break and went back to making a couple dozen more 3D flowers!

Great Job on that map fabric! Its a great idea, have you thought about doing a lap sized version? YOu could get spoonflower to print larger blocks of your map fabric. Any who, way to go!
