Using your computer's editing software, crop the map to a square and adjust the size to 16" x 16" and the dpi to 150. Upload your cropped image to Spoonflower.com, who will print your customized design onto linen or cotton canvas and mail it to you. You can fit one 16" x 16" design on to one fat quarter.
