More Stitched Maps

3 main streets

When I did my sketchbook project “Main Street”, I drew many more maps than actually fit in the sketchbook.  So I’ve been mounting and stitching the ones I didn’t use in the book.  Above are the first three I’ve finished.

How did I decide which cities to use?  It was really random.  I would go to google maps and type in “Main Street” and then the name of a state, and a few suggestions for cities would pop up.  Then I would randomly choose from that list, and fool around with the map until I had a layout that I liked.

This will be a project with no end, which is fine.  I love maps and I love embroidery.

    They are fantastic. I’d like to have a whole wall of them, framed in nice clean black frames. Excellent imagination.
