I always love seeing what other people are doing with the New York City Subway Map. From dresses to sunglasses, various iterations of the map serve as inspiration for the both the commercial and the artistic.

Today’s map draws its inspiration from the 1950s, and it is that map on a whole cloth quilt. Amusingly enough, it comes from a workshop in Toronto, and the stitcher even made sure to get the color coding as accurate as possible. For more on the map, check out Make Something’s post about it. With the subway map, an iconic image of New York City, anything is possible.
