Update: Scrap Map of U.S.A.

I worked on the map again this weekend, so time to show off the progress.

While it looks like it's over halfway done, looks are deceptive.  The big states take up more space but total only about 20 states. 

My thumb got tired from all te cutting so I put the map aside again for a while.  I think I need a different pair of scissors.  I've been using my embroidery scissors (the storks) which KILL my thumb.  But I need tiny scissors to get all the little cuves cut so. . .

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to the Eastern seaboard.  Tons of tiny states over there.

(for the record, I'm not putting much if any thought into what scraps I use for what state.  I'm mostly going for best color coordination for the whole map--like not putting two fo the same color next to each other and things like that, so if you live in Kansas don't be offended that I used the hearse fabric for your lovely state)


  1. I love that! I think I will wait until you're done to see how much the small states make you cry before I try to tackle something like that ;)

    1. Well, I already had some practice with Hawaii. It wasn't too horrible.

  2. this looks awesome! i cant wait to see it when it's finished
