Default US quilt

This is all from scraps. 40"x50". Will likely go to my nephew (7 months old) for christmas. My sister is a bit of a geography buff so I thought this would suit them well for his first geography lesson!

This is great! As kids, we had a map puzzle with large puzzle pieces. After we learned all the states, we would pick a piece of puzzle with our eyes closed & try to name the state by just feeling the shape of it. It was always a way to learn & have fun at the same time. Your nephew will love this quilt.

That is such a cool quilt! It will be a long term geography lesson for sure. I love maps so this is a quilt I would never tire of looking at. Well done :-)

That’s amazing 🤩 so for the geographically challenged how did you make the pattern? I know a few people that would love to have this and they really need it too!

I'm with Ariannaquilts, I think I'd like to try this for my niece that travels or did travel pre-Covid.

You have done an excellent job of the whole process!
