The Bourn Cottage.......

Believe it or not this is a quilt of the Bourn Cottage here in Nevada City, California
This beautiful quilt won Best of Show at our local quilt show and may I say this picture does not do it justice ! This is truly a piece of art. It took this quilter 1 year and 2 days to complete this quilt. She took 20 different pictures of the cottage for her reference in making this amazing quilt

Here are just a few pictures of the Bourn Cottage. It is located a the " Empire Mine Historic Park " here in Nevada City , California. I am fortunate to live only 15 minutes from this wonderful historic park. 800 acre State Park including the Empire Mine.

  1. Funny that I have never seen this having lived half of my life in that area. A must see the next time we come out that way. The quilt artist certainly captured the essence of it.

  2. The quilt is so representative of the real thing. A well done piece. Thank you for sharing.

  3. Beautiful work on thid quilt! Love the this beautiful cottage. I would like to visit there someday. You captured wonderful and beautiful pictures --- thanks for sharing. Carolyn :)
