Hello to all,
I was recently looking in one of those home decorating magazines and saw a room with a huge picture of an old world map of half the world. It took up half the wall.
I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find an embroidery pattern for something like that. Small ones are fine to start out with. It has so much detail to pay attention too, I know it would be a challenge and I want it.
Thanks A Bunch, Yvette Naef

|I haven't seen the old world map embroidery you are talking about, but I would love to be able to embroidery something like that on a quilt for my son. He just asked me a week or so ago to make one for him, and I've been trying to think of pattern ideas for it. Some ladies on the quilting forum suggested a star or long cabin pattern. I think I'm going with the star pattern, but I want to add in something nautical as well because his room is decorated that way. The wall paper in his room has old wold maps on it and I think if I could put that on the quilt I'm making, that would tie the whole room together. Please share a link or something if you find anything.||

I have not seen an embroidery pattern like that but why couldn't you get a picture of a map,enlarge on a copy machine and then trace onto your fabric?
Seems like that would work and you would have a unique design.
