quilted maps!

Wow. I just came across this and thought it was a brilliant idea. I don't have a longarm machine, so I'm not sure how easy/hard this would be to do with one. Obviously you could print out some maps and trace them onto fabric, then sew them on your home sewing machine. I'm really intrigued by the idea of making the quilting be a map of an area special to you.

Alternately, I could do some tracing and use different colored scraps to make a quilt that looks like my neighborhood. i have seen a quilt like that before, and I adored it. I am so intrigued and excited about this! Who knows, you may see some works in progress soon...

I would share pictures but I want to respect her copyright--just check it out, really!
