Haptic Lab, the design studio known for creating intricately detailed "soft maps" -- quilted renderings of cities and neighborhoods -- has released a do-it-yourself quilt kit so that you can create the look yourself.
The $38 DIY kit includes a single-use template so experienced sewers can create their own 36-by-42-inch map of the United States. The kit also includes sewing instructions and a material list to bring to your local quilt shop or fabric store. Fabric, batting and thread are not included.
Haptic Lab's finished keepsakes normally range from $145 for a baby quilt to $450 for a larger size that the company says fits full to king-size beds; custom pieces are priced as high as $1,200.
