DIY Map Quilt Pattern of New York
Sew your own map of New York City. These quilt projects make amazing quilts, great keepsakes and gorgeous wall-hangings. They are large enough to use as a cot quilt.
Sew your own 106cm x 92cm map of New York City. These quilt projects make amazing quilts, great keepsakes and gorgeous wall-hangings. They are large enough to use as a cot quilt.
Personalise your map with embroidered details that are special to you: a hotel or apartment you once lived in or stayed, favourite landmarks you visited, or places of pure sentimental value…
The basic DIY kit includes a single-use map template of New York City and sewing instructions. You will need to purchase your quilt fabric, batting and thread separately (the instructions include a material list to take to your local quilt or sewing shop). Some prior sewing experience is helpful, but not necessary.
Whole-cloth map quilting is very simple. Two pieces of cloth sandwich a fluffy inside layer of quilt batting and the design of the quilt is transferred by stitching a traced drawing through all layers of material.
The map transfer is then carefully torn off the top layer of the quilt to reveal the final design and special embroidery details can be sewn to personalise the project.
Be patient and give yourself lots of time: a typical quilting project will take about 60 hours to complete.
