Quilting the Planet

The Ocean currents for the quilt

Quilting the planet

Well, not really quilting the planet but it;s the kind of daft idea I’m famed for. I’m quilting a map of the world. I have had this fabric for about 10 years. I started doing it by hand (Oh Canada! Why are you so wiggly?) but got distracted by small children and life. I have recently decided to have another go at it.

I have a lovely sewing machine now, a Pfaff Ambition 1.0 and it makes quilting a great deal easier. This time I have decided to quilt the ocean currents as well as going round the continents.

I’m still not sure about Canada though.  Very wiggly.

I’d better get on with it before all the boundaries change again.

  1. I did a map of Minnesota once, but I haven’t taken on the world yet! I think it’s a cool idea.
