The Fremont Bridge

I love bridge architecture. This bridge is no exception. Located in Portland, OR, it is used for crossing the Willamette River when on the north leg of the 405.

When my daughter was small and interested in quilting and quilt block names, we came to call this bridge the "Flying Geese" bridge. A closer image explains this. It came to signify home. When we arrived at the bridge, we always knew we were nearly home.

I made a quilt based on these images for a show called Portlandia. The quilt presented many challenges but I love everything about it.I offer it here.
