United States Map Quilt

I was able to get this done just before my Kona Quilt as a surprise birthday gift for my 2 year old cousin. For the quilting I decided on a 2" wide crosshatch and tried to not have the quilting overlap with my label on the back (and was successful!).

I just love this United States map panel - I hope someday it can help him learn all of the states and capitals!

The color order of the outside Kona border was also put to a vote just like my Kona Rainbow Flower Quilt.  (As you can tell I Photoshop EVERYTHING first - right down to the measurements)  Photo 3 was the winner.

From the inside out its: Kona Ocean, Corn Yellow, Papaya, Orange, and a border of Ocean.


  1. I like it! I swear I had that panel of fabric when my kids were little...but I don't remember ever finishing it into a quilt. Hmmmm....??? Nice job with the borders!!!

  2. What a great idea! I love the border colors!

  3. Cola, you were in the favorites photos on! Seems everyone loves your Kona challenge quilt!
