KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – Over the tops of the steep hillside St. Olof vineyard and through the plush foliage of trees, hangs another Lake County Quilt Trail gem, titled “Twisted Star.”
Cindi and Eric Olof, 5615 Highland Springs Road, Lakeport, own the Olof Cellars and the barn holding the quilt block.
From a distance there is a slight view from Highland Springs Road. GPS location: N 38° 58´36¨ W 122° 53´40.¨ For a closer look-see, the owners prefer visitors call for an appointment at 707-391-7947.
Cindi Olof’s great-grandmother was of Norwegian ancestry and introduced her to the art of quilting.
Searching for a pattern that embraced Scandinavian appliquéd knot designs, she chose an enter-twined star and filled the block with very bright colors.
Olof said, “This is a wonderful community project. It makes people smile.”
Day to day information about the Lake County Quilt Trail can be found on Facebook. Pictures of the artists and projects in progress are posted frequently.
Information, history, and application forms to join this on-going project are found at www.lakecountyquilttrail.com .
