Map It Out Challenge

Here is my finished art quilt for the 'Quilting Arts' challenge.


Here is the write up that goes along with it:  

I took an old out of circulation map and copied it onto fabric, then cut it up and stitched it back together a few times.  Added some colourful 'roads of life' to map my journey through life and quilted it with lines marking the roads I didn’t take.


I have linked up at Leah Day's Free Motion Quilting blog.

That is a terrific idea to print on fabric - maps - and roads not taken as the quilting! Definitely a winner.
