Throw-sized quilted map of the Great Lakes is made by hand from 100% natural cotton; the hand-appliqued lakes are made of poly-silk. Measures 54" x 72".
I'm so excited for this. I had to comment. I want. I want.
As a lifelong Michigander: want, want, WANT!
Love my great lakes but love my home, Detroit, even more!
I grew up in MI...in the middle of the hand. When I saw this it instantly reminded me of all the things I loved about back home. And yes, even though my home is technically in the NorthWEST (ugh for the rain!!) I will always think of MI as "back home"....I cannot wait to enter this giveaway. What an awesome quilt!!
I love ALL of the giveaways, but this is the one I feel passionately enough about to comment. Gorgeous.
This thing is beautiful; cash strapped as I am, I would much rather win this than any of the other, more expensive things in the running.
Love love LOVE love love. I wish I could find a way to add my hometown onto it... I can pinpoint it from here.
This quilt, or ANY of the quilts stitched by the Haptic Lab elves would be the coolest warm thing ever. I would be delighted to win this.
My home is on that quilt! Right on the end of that wolf's nose.
Please pick this Michigander!
I can see my house from this quilt!
perfect for my new Chicago apartment! crossing my fingers
This is awesome!
Really beautiful, I love the plan view of the Great Lakes.
LOVE it! So amazing. I have been looking for some thing for my new house to remind me of my time spent in the UP - spent several years in the UP of Michigan along Lake Superior. I've very fond memories of times spent at the lake and hiking in the mountains.
Ahhhhhh I need this in my life! Grew up in the lower left corner of the mitten. <3 Michigan.
I want this one!!! The city where I was born and my current city are both named on the map, too. Some of the Great Lakes beaches are better than the many ocean beaches I've visited...sorry, coastal people!
This is quite beautiful and I believe that it would make a perfect gift for my special lady who hails from the lakes
Lifetime resident of Wisconsin! Love this!
I could sew a star on the location of my mid-Michigan hometown. Win!
I have had my eye on this quilt for a while, but I just can't afford it. Crossing my fingers in hopes to win it.
Go Great Lakes!!
never been, but LOVE
I saw this down at Detroit Mercantile in Eastern Market and have been dreaming ever since. Please, santa, please! I have been good enough, comparatively speaking.....
Lake Erie ftw!
Love love love the Great Lakes! Big thumbs up with this giveaway!!
Oh, I love this! THanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway!

This would be awesome in my little bungalow in Bay City, Michigan!
I live in the mitten! Always wanted to show how smitten I am with it :)
I miss my Great Lakes, they're really great. This would help!
I love this, would go great with my photo of Cleveland's West Side Farmers Market!
Former Michigander who would be honored to have this on my wall to remind me of my roots. It's really very lovely!
First time I am entering. LOVE it!
Oh goodness. If I could afford this on my own, I'd take it in a heartbeat. It's gorgeous.
My brother went to boot camp in the great lakes. He's finally at the point when he can have nonregulation bedcovers! I hope I win, because it's the only way I could possibly afford it. What a beautiful and unique giveaway!
I'm from Chicago and my long-time boyfriend is from Cleveland. We love the Great Lakes! I would so love to own this lovely giveaway.
Chicago, land of growing up (not knowing about long underwear or wool socks), walking backwards into the 45 degree below wind chill factor freeze. Fingers and toes falling off, CTA buses sloshing black slush on to you. Bike messengering downtown Chicago in the winter, bike slips on ice. It's sooooo cold the steel frame just cracks in two. Waiting on Addison Avenue and Lake Shore Drive for the bus. Wind whipping around the corner hi-rise.COLD! SNOWSTORM BLIZZARD...trudge through the thigh high snow to an empty Montrose Beach. No other crazies are out there but me and my dog Gypsy. It is almost as if I am not in a city teeming with millions. The visibility and aloneness, the waves, the COLD...I could be in Alaska! But, I love it. And what better to come home to and wrap oneself up in, then a quilt of the most beautiful Great Lakes? The lake I ran to every morning of my 16th year, running to beat the sun coming up over the edge of it. The giant expanse of emptiness, a huge swath of nature abutting the buzzing concrete jungle I was born within. The lake which saves my soul over and over again. GREAT LAKES!
omg I want that quilt so i can embroider a little "X" where my hometown is.
This would be the perfect gift for my quilting mother from Michigan! She would love it!
Home is where the heart it! Love for the mitten<3
Yoop! Yoop! Yoop!
Born and raised in "the Cleve", living in G-Rap, MI now, with a lovely little cottage on the outside of the tip of your pinky- in Empire...great lakes love, great lakes pride!
We Michiganders have mad love for our state and lakes! Love this HOMES quilt!!!
I can't believe I'm seriously considering a $220 quilt, but as someone who has lived next to Lake Michigan in two different states over 22 years, I can't imagine a more perfect quilt to snuggle up with in the winter!

many summers spent on the shores of Lake Ontario, such great memories! I love quilts of any kind, but this one is gorgeous!

Hmmm....I thought it was Michigander...lol maybe only in my own head.
I love this quilt...beautiful craftsmanship!
I''m from the bottom of the lifeline on the palm of southern Michigan. Love this! Imma sew a button where my house is.
I was born and raised in the northern lower Michigan. Never been away from Michigan ...we have everything why would I leave =0) Best forests, dirt roads, clean freshwater lakes and beaches and in the UP we have the most beautiful rocky cliffs overlooking Lake Superior.If you have fresh water, miles of untouched beaches, green forests, rolling farmlands...what else could a northern girl want...well this beautiful warm quilt for certain!
Wow! What a lovely piece! Perfect for any modern Americana home -- but especially mine! lol
What a great piece of art!
My boyfriend and I saw this quilt on the Haptic Labs website the other day and we were talking about how insanely COOL it was! We couldn't believe that it featured my hometown (Traverse City), his hometown (Cleveland) and the town I went to college in! Then just a few days later I noticed that it was a giveaway on apartment therapy! It must have been fate! apartment therapy--please pick me to win--I would love to give this gift to my boyfriend this holiday season :)Thanks and Happy Holidays!
Milwaukee HERE! A great city on a great lake!!
