I love world maps. I had looked into buying a large roller map for above the couch, but couldn’t seem to find one that fit our home and budget. When I decided to make one of my own, I went through several different design ideas. Am I the only one who always has to draft my ideas over and over again before I feel ready to execute? Anyway, originally I wanted to applique the continents onto the quilt, then I came up with this insane, headache-inducing, overly complicated design to piece together a map of the world. I was ready to try it out when I saw this. Change of plan, hold my horses, back to the drawing board. This was going to be a pixelated quilt. And I’m SO happy that it is!
