Sew your own 36" x 36" map of the Southern stars using this easy and fun do-it-yourself quilt kit. The design makes a great keepsake or wall-hanging. Personalize your map with embroidered details like a French knot Milky Way or the names of your favorite stars. Or use glow-in-the-dark embroidery thread for a quilt project that really shines.
The basic DIY kit includes a single-use map template of the stars and sewing instructions. Quilt fabric, batting and thread are not included, but this kit includes instructions and a material list to take to your local quilt shop. Some prior sewing experience is helpful, but not necessary.
Haptic Lab is a small design studio in Brooklyn, New York, known for their heirloom-quality quilted maps of cities and neighborhoods made in partnership with fair-labor partners in India, and handmade kites made in collaboration with Balinese artisans. The word haptic refers to the sense of touch, and everything they design is meant to inspire meaningful connections through that sense.
