Map Quilts

Pondering the idea of making a small quilt of a map of our area.  Maybe a topo map, or road map, or or or...  Looking for ideas across the internet this morning, I found some wonderful things!

Scrappy maps in vivid color like "I Left My Heart in Africa" from WorldQuilter

Topographic Quilt of Julian, California.  One of Haptic Lab's fabulous Neighborhood Quilts

And the most stunning quilts by Leah Evans...wonderful interpretations of topographic maps and aerial views in fabric.
