USA Map Wall Quilt

When I asked my sister-in-law what she would like for her birthday, I thought she might like a new blouse or magazine subscription renewal, but she said she would really like a USA map wall quilt. She and my brother take hiking trips to state and national parks, and she wants to write the dates they visit each state on the map.

A quick search on equilter.com revealed a brightly colored map of all 50 states. Even though it is a tad juvenile, Margaret loves the cheerful colors. I trimmed the map panel to 24 1/2″ x 30 1/2,” and raided my stash of scrap 3 1/2″ squares for a coordinating border. With a gel roller pen she can write names of the parks and dates on the lighter squares.

This was a fun quilt to make! Perhaps you know some travel buffs who would appreciate a similar gift.
