Swoon: Soft Maps Quilts

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

If anyone wants to get me an extravagant gift, I'd be thrilled to own one of Emily Fischer's 'Soft Maps Quilts.' Fischer creates handmade quilts with maps of Brooklyn neighborhoods stitched onto the fabric. The line started out as custom orders only, but Fischer has partnered up with a quilter in Stamford, CT to do combination machine and hand-stitched quilts. Among the Brooklyn neighborhoods featured is the one and only Fort Greene (the quilt also features parts of nearby Boerum Hill and Prospect Heights).
