LAKEPORT – The “Liberty Stars” is a beautiful traditional quilt. It was created by Lakeport’s Kerrie Hershey as her way of supporting the troops.


Hershey, owner of Kerrie’s Quilt Shop in Lakeport, was looking for a way to do something special for our troops. She decided to put her talent to work.


The quilt boasts striking red and blue stars on a white background. The reverse side is a deep dark blue with a golden eagle print.


The design is very traditional, appealing to men and women alike. The time-honored art of quilting is alive and well in Lake County and this is proof.


The Liberty Stars has been created on behalf of Operation Tango Mike, a group which sends monthly care packages to deployed troops.


Raffle tickets are available for chances to win the one of a kind treasure. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.


The quilt is currently on display at Kerrie’s Quilting, 1853 North High St., Lakeport, and tickets may be purchased there.


Watch for upcoming locations as the Liberty Stars will be displayed at various businesses until the winner is drawn on July 4.


If you are interested in hosting the quilt for display, please call Ginny Craven at 349-2838.
