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, 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.
