Soft-Maps Quilts For Cartographers Looking To Stay Warm

Soft-Maps Quilts (Image courtesy Haptic Lab)
By Andrew Liszewski

Maybe it’s my unnatural fascination with Google Maps, but I really like these Soft-Maps quilts which are made just like regular quilts but feature stitching that recreates street maps of major U.S. cities and neighborhoods including Brooklyn, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and Washington D.C. Whether you buy one as a reminder of a place you’re particularly fond of, or as a way to teach your child about the city they live in, they’re all visually unique and will keep you warm too! The only downside is that a 50×70-inch Soft-Map runs $500, while the larger 88×96-inch version is $800.

    That's kind of neat. They should offer ones in color. quilting with color isn't hard.
