Locavore: Quilt is based on the beauty of Puget Sound

By Bree Coven Brown / Special to Sunday Market

quilt_600_0412Snuggle up and learn your geography with the Haptic Lab Puget Sound Quilt.

The intricate, tactile quilt is hand-embroidered with gold polysilk stitched onto light-blue cotton backing. It displays the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands all the way down to the Budd Inlet. The Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges, Seattle, Tacoma, and Bremerton, Whidbey and Bainbridge islands are all labeled, and the topography is accurately represented.

You’d never know it was made in Brooklyn by craft artisans who preserve iconic coastal regions in fabric. Each quilt measures 60 by 70 inches.

$290 at Fini (Pike Place Market) and hapticlab.com
