Sew your own 36" x 42" map of the City of Lights. Personalize your map with embroidered details that are most special to you: your favorite pâtisserie, tabac or picnic spot on the Seine...
These quilt projects make great keepsakes and wall-hangings. Personalize your map with embroidered details like French knot asteroids or the names of your favorite planets and moons. Planets are appliqued by hand; we recommend prior sewing experience for this project.

Sleep under the stars, explore the world or get lost exploring city streets with our DIY Quilt Patterns. Follow the instructions and make beautiful quilts of the Northern Star constellation or map of London, Paris or The World - perfect for those long nights by the fire.
Remarkably simple to make even for the novice stitcher, the pattern includes step-by-step instructions and recommended stitches.

These DIY Quilt Patterns make the perfect present, the choice of fabrics and thread colour is endless. Most start with a simple organic white soft cotton or indigo and play around with thread colour. Indigo makes a stunning backdrop for the Northern Stars design.
The quilt pattern paper is gently pulled away when the stitching is finished, revealing the final design...
A range of simple stitches in different colours can be used to delineate parks, lakes and rivers. The city maps can be personalised by appliqueing scraps of fabric to mark, for example: certain houses where favourite writers once lived, or perhaps where two soulmates met?
