This is a lap blanket I made my son for Christmas to keep him warm while watching TV and educational so when a country is mentioned, he can look down on the blanket and see where it is on the map.

It cost under $15 for all materials and took about 6 hrs because of the quilting.

I bought the world map fabric panel at Walmart for under $6 and the fleece at Hancock fabric (1 1/2 yds) at Hancock fabric for $4 a yd. then machine quilted where the latitude and longitude line were on the map.

What a fantastic idea for a quilt! This could be used as a wallhanging too, it's great!
I wish we had Walmart, and Joann's over here, you seem to get some great bargains!
