Timna Tarr created her quilt, Mississippi Meander, based on a map showing the ancient meanders of the Mississippi River. Each color represents a different time period in the river's life. She put the key to the map in the quilt's binding. 
This small abstract quilt was exhibited at the Houston International Quilt Festival 2018.

I'm so inspired by this quilt! Besides a love of map making and quilting, I've loved river meanders, and the key in the binding just makes me giddy!

This quilt is amazing! Since I'm a former earth science teacher, it combines two things that Iove - science & quilting. The color choices are very calming.

How cool is this quilt? Who would have thought to use a map as inspiration. This is a true art piece.

Amazing. It’s interesting that the current path seems to be the one most closely following the original pathway.
