Maine Mills

This cool old mill was in Brunswick, Maine. Inside was a huge antique mall! 

I did see this yo-yo quilt. 

Is this the side you show? I've never made one and never really thought about it.

I love the fabric (including that army green blanket color!) in this log cabin. 

This was 3D with velvet clothing and lace! It was different, in a charming sort of way!

I love textiles and wish I would have purchased this patriotic little outfit. 

We are on a bridge over the Androscoggin River. I think I mentioned before we didn't get off the beaten path much because of the snow. 
Our view from the bridge. 

I love seeing these old mills revitalized!

I'm in Idaho mid week and I thought you'd like to see a little more of Maine.  It is such a pretty state with so much history. 

I hope your week is going great!


  1. I’ve always seen yo-yo quilts with the side with the gathers and center hole facing out. They’re usually stitched down to a backing fabric, so you know how they were meant to go.

    1. I've never seen them stitched down to a backing.

  2. I enjoyed the glimpses of Maine sites I haven't seen before.
    And I always enjoy seeing vintage textiles.
    What are you doing in Idaho? Teaching?

  3. Yes, the gathered side of the yo-yo is the right side. I haven't been to Brunswick in a long time. As a teen,, I used to walk across the river on that walking bridge. It used to sway and bounce. It was a little scary.

  4. Loved your Maine pictures. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Looks like a wonderful trip! Love that patriotic outfit!
