VANCOUVER WOULD BE COOLER IF #197: It Had Its Own Hand-Stitched CityScape Quilt

(via) We love these hand-stitched, 100% cotton city quilts by HapticLab. They do San Fran, LA, Chicago, Paris (above), London, New Orleans, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington DC, but not Vancouver. Get on it.

  1. Actually, I commissioned one for a friend’s wedding about 4 years ago. Probably one of the last ones that the artist did by hand before Haptic took off, Also, she happened to be coming to Vancouver from NYC so she even dropped it off to me in person. It’s a street of East Vancouver and it was beautiful!
