Maine Pine Tree State Block 20 - Maine is truly a scenic wonder. Picturesque lighthouses and quaint fishing villages add to the natural splendor of the coastline and forests. West Quoddy Head Light overlooks Quoddy Narrows, the strait between Canada and the United States. Since 1808, there has been a lighthouse to guide ships through the waterway. The current Light house, with its distinctive red-and-white stripes, was built in 1858. The pine cone and tassel was adopted as the official floral emblem of Maine since February 1, 1895. Other state symbols; Wild Blue Berry, Wintergreen with its reddish brown stems. The states seal & flag a farmer rests on his scythe, and a sailor leans on an anchor. And last not a state emblem but I when I think of Maine I think of Lobster!
Finished block size 15in. - Our love for Baltimore Album Quilts made during the 1800's was the inspiration for our American Album Blocks. Each realistic album style block is filled with flowers, birds and a little American History. Each pattern includes full size numbered pattern with detailed embroidery instructions and Pearl's Easy Applique Techniques. Join us as we travel across America block by block and state by state.
