Not quite the same as the real thing but it is close enough!
So now I'm thinking about my next block for my Cornish quilt The Meadery. Another important aspect of the Cornish economy was tin. The landscape is dotted with engine houses where the mines are located. Cornish tin mines are thought to be the oldest mines in western England and they date back to prehistoric times. My plan is to create the Greenburrow Shaft engine house at Ding Dong Mine. It was built in 1865 at at its peak employed 230 men and boys. By 1879 the mine was shut. You can see the engine house in the distance underneath Lanyon Quoit.
Until I post again happy sewing!
