Map quilts

Brooklyn-based Haptic Lab makes the most amazing map quilts of cities, like New York, Austin and Paris, and you can also order a custom map of a neighborhood or village you love. How sweet to cuddle up in your favorite place, even when you're miles away.

What city or neighborhood would you get? xoxo

So cute! I would of course pick NYC or Chicago! =)

hip hip gin gin said...

This is fantastic!! I would love to have a quilt of every city I've lived in. That would be quite a few quilts though, I would need to built another closet to house them all, but I think it would be worth it!

Life Abroad said...

Amsterdam!

Marie said...

I would pick Paris bien sur !! Lovely idea

Lillian Chang said...

Awww, that is so sweet - this would be such the perfect gift to someone who's homesick and miles away!! I'd get one of Taipei - because all my family's there and it's like a second home to me. But then, maybe when I'm in Taipei, I'd get a map of Southern California, because that's my primary home. It's like you can't win no matter where you are! My heart is cracked in two and split between two places...so the only solution would be, naturally, to get two blankets :)

chanstand said...

I would get Chicago... Logan Square.. and mark the court house where my husband and i got married!!!!
yah!!!!

ciupa said...

so original! my mom is a quilter and definitely will get a kick out of this. I would get her Copenhagen, her hometown.

Caroline, No. said...

That's my friend Cristina in the photo! This is her friend's business. They are beautiful quilts indeed. x

Jenna said...

LOVE!


I'd like to say Istanbul, but in reality I'd probably prefer the Twin Cities.

Signe said...

Such a great idea :)

Sarah said...

These are awesome! I would love to have one of my hometown or the town I went to university in.

Also, I have a question for you Joanna- I seem to recall you posting about necklaces in the shape of states once. I've tried searching your blog, but I can't find them. Was that you? Or am I mixing up my bloggers? :)

Lynn from For Love or Funny said...

My kids would love a quilt map!

Caddy said...

That's cool!

Arlie said...

this is a wonderful idea! I can think of several people something like this would make a great gift for...

Aura said...

How cute. I would go with Austin. That city has a little piece of my heart.

amy said...

How fabulous! I'd have to pick Austin, because we LOVE living here. But I think I'd also want a quilt of a lovely city I don't live in but have visited, like Paris or NYC.

abigail said...

I love these! I know so many people who have moved around their towns, it'd be fun to embroider an x or something every place they'd lived.

Sitting In A Tree Kissing said...

I think I would like to take a nap on the Paris one :)

Melissa Blake said...

oh, these are so awesome! I'd get the Swedish neighborhood of Chicago because I'm from the midwest and half Swedish! :)

Conny's Cottage said...

very lovly
greatings send you Conny

alex said...

how amazing would it be to plot your life in new york city on map as a future family heirloom. I've grown up in New York and hopefully will get to spend more time here, I'd love to be able to plot the apartment I took my first steps in and the other ones my family moved to throughout my childhood. So cool. Thanks for sharing.

Maria Ana said...

esdelope said...

I'd be all about Madrid - I think all the winding streets and neighborhoods would look stunning! Or Barcelona - how pretty to have the beach and Gaudi park!

amy said...

Ooh, speaking of Austin (how's that for a transition?) have you seen the new Austin street style blog I launched with a friend?
It's like our mini Sartorialist. :)

jamie said...

you are KIDDING ME. our own neigb, obv.

PoetessWug said...

I'd probably get Chicago. I've never been there, but I would love to!...New york (Manhattan area) might not be bad either!

Blue Is Bleu said...

I've been planning to do a map quilt of Manhattan... it's where my husband proposed to me and I'm trying to move us to NYC!

Meg said...

awww i would get vancouver, bc! i recently moved from vancouver to ontario, and i miss it so much! i would ask them to make the ocean extra blue :)

Lulu said...

Most definitely my hometown, Santa Barbara, if I could. What a fun quilt idea!

Ittny said...

These are awesome! I would go with my hometown of Portland :)

Lucy Calico said...

what an awesome idea! I'd choose Vancouver, BC, my hometown...far far away from Spain, where I live now. No complaints here, but I miss that town! I would love one of these! xo

dizzy_izzy said...

These are absolutely gorgeous, too bad they are soo pricey! I would choose the central park one, and another one of LA preferably Downtown and East LA.

Kristen said...

very neat! i'd have to have one of Dallas - my current city!

Katie Bright said...

Seriously precious.

Kelly said...

I would pick Florence Italy,...

I absolutely love these. I wish they weren't so pricey but can totally understand why they are!

I would do the Kenai Peninsula in AK for my parents and then a map of Cornell University's campus--my beloved alma mater!

Charly said...

I left NYC almost five years ago, and I regret it every day of my life. So no doubt, I would get the NYC map!!!! I LOVE NY!!!! NY is where my heart is...! NY is my home.

I have discovered Sharon Montrose a while ago and I really love her work. The pictures are so sweet and delicate. Especially that Piglet. I would even take him as pet :)

Laina said...

This is such an awesome idea! I would love to have one of London Barcelona and Ann Arbor, MI a town that will always have my heart and some of my best years!

Abigail said...

I'd love to have one of Colonial Williamsburg. That would be so awesome. Such a great, original idea.

Maps are a real trend right now! I'm really fascinated by them, and these quilts are lovely. I'd like Venice with it's canal grande and green waters...

okaycamille said...

This is amazing. I want one of my home on the other side of the hemsipher and another one of my village. Do you think they do African villages? That could be really fun.

Wow.. that was really neat way of putting it. Excellent!! My compliments. Always wondered as to how this would really be. You have really put across the point so well that you have made number of things quite clear. Of course will have to go through it properly a couple of times to actually gauge, but as of now I totally agree with your sentiment.
