Haptic Lab is now offering DIY map quilt templates of New York City! We love spending time in New York, so this is going to be a gift to myself, personalized with some of our favorite NYC places.
It looks detailed, but the method itself is simple: make a quilt sandwich (backing/batting/top) and secure the template on top. Stitching is done directly through the template. When you’re done, tear away the template, bind and enjoy your quilt! It’s sized to use with a yard cut of fabric, which will make a nice wall quilt or baby quilt.
It’s a little difficult to see the detail because the top is a somewhat sheer, and in my photos the template is laying on the dark wood of our dining room table.
The coastal boundaries are thick, dark lines. The main streets solid black, with secondary streets in a lighter gray that are harder to see here. Thankfully it’s easier to see in person, as I’m going to be spending a lot of time with this!
You can buy your own template or quilt kit here or purchase a finished quilt here. (There are other cities available!)
