amazing map quilt inspiration!

So apparently I can't stop talking about quilts this week.

Recently I was searching for an image of all the Great Lakes (as opposed to just Michigan) that I could trace for something at work when I came across this magnificent quilt.

This same company – Haptic Lab – uses maps of cities to create quilts. The quilting itself represents the streets! Amazing, beautiful, subtle. I am seriously in awe!
