A while ago I read about Haptic Lab, a company that makes quilts using city maps, combining my love of sewing and cartography – what more could a girl want? They have full bed-sized quilts that are pretty expensive, but they also have “do it yourself” kits. What could I do but start my own Boston version?

      It definitely is! However, you can also buy pre-made quilts from Haptic Lab, if you really want one…

    This is so cool. How long did the hand embroidering take?

      Thanks! “Lucky” for me, we had a big snowstorm in Boston and I was able to make huge progress while binge-watching TV :D I think in total, it probably took about 40 hours – but bear in mind I didn’t do all the smaller roads, so the full thing could take even longer!
