Mill Girls

A beautiful quilt by a friend and client.  She also is a friend of the pattern designer.  This BOM called "Mill Girls" was created by  Nancy Rink and she also co-authored the book  "Away From Home" by Nancy and Oliver Rink.   The book tells the story taken from the diaries and letters of Lowell, Massachusetts, the Mill Girls and the history of the textile factories where they worked.  Interesting bit of history and a lovely quilt to use on your bed.

really cool - I know the town of Lowell. Many of the old mills are now renovated into beautiful architectural buildings.
