I was invited to present my Trunk Show and teach my class 'Scrap Strategies' for the Ladies of The Lake Quilt Guild up in Lake County, CA. What a great group! Excuse the '60's terminology; but, they really have a nice vibe! Everyone was really friendly and helpful and I'd like to give a special shout out to Valerie and Linda for making me feel so welcome!
After my presentation on Sat. morning I had time to do a little sightseeing. First stop was Kerrie's Quilting. Check out Kerrie's website http://www.kerriesquilting.com . Kerrie has a nice array of fabrics and a lot of cute samples. You can also pick-up this brochure at Kerrie's.
Lake County has the first ever Quilt Trail in California. I'd heard of Barn Quilts but I'd never heard of a Quilt Trail! The brochure comes with a little history, pictures of all the Barn Quilts and a map so you can locate and visit the various locations. I had planned on doing a drive around the lake but this just made it that much more interesting!
I drove North East up around the top of the Lake and down around the East shore. There weren't many Barn Quilts here but the lakeside park in Lucerne was really nice with great views of the lake.

If you're ever in Northern California, perhaps visiting the Wine Country I highly recommend taking a side trip to Lake county. It's beautiful and full of interesting sites not least of which is the Barn Quilt Trail!
