Sew your own 36" x 42" map of Ann Arbor, the home of the University of Michigan, with this easy and fun do-it-yourself quilting kit. The design makes a great keepsake or wall-hanging and is large enough to use as a crib quilt. Personalize your map with embroidered details that are most special to you: your old off-campus house, favorite local watering hole, or indicate the average length of the queue to get inside of Zingerman's.
The basic DIY kit includes a single-use map template of Ann Arbor and sewing instructions. Quilt fabric, batting and thread are not included, but this kit includes 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. The word haptic refers to the sense of touch, and everything they design is meant to inspire meaningful connections through that sense.
