Here’s a treat for all you Midwesterners out there – Brooklyn’s Haptic Labs has a new hand-stitched map quilt depicting the Great Lakes in all their glory. Hooray!
The 54-in. x 72-in. quilt covers everything from Duluth, MN to Rochester, NY and includes cities like Buffalo, Toronto, Cleveland, Toledo, Detroit, Ann Arbor, Chicago, Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Iowa City, Pittsburgh, and Fort Wayne. They are available in limited quantities from the Haptic Labs website for $219.
If you’re more of the hands-on type, they also offer several DIY kit versions of their quilts. Now you can stitch your own version of their NYC, world, and USA map quilts.
And, of course, they still have their super popular baby map quilts. Pictured above is the Boston Baby Quilt, available for $145. If someone close is expecting a new baby, I can’t image a more perfect gift!
Update: Due to damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, Haptic Labs has informed us that orders will take longer than usual to fulfill until their waterfront studio in Brooklyn can be repaired. Our hearts are with you!
