here in this post. ) Basically, members from my Quiltsy Team on Etsy, in honor of National Quilting Day in March, started making their own versions of a log cabin block, then sending it on to the next person in their assigned row. The blocks, then the rows will all be sewn together to make one quilt made by many! Well, the traveling quilt blocks are getting around, and I've received the North East Row in progress, and attached my block there to the bottom to complete it and she's ready to ship on to become a quilt!
The bridge was used to connect a spur to the Savage Cotton Mill which you can see across the river in the background in the photo (you can click on the photos to see a more close up view). Savage Mill is still open today, but not as a manufacturing plant making cotton duck any more, but as a really cool retail facility with unique shops, antiques and artists. The quilt shop where I worked, And Sew It Goes is located in the mill. If you ever get the chance to visit Maryland, check it out ~ it's very centrally located right off the Interstate 95 corridor, and makes for a great day trip!
here on my website has a better garden shot. Nothing says "Spring Water Designs" to me better than that :)
