Lady of the Lake
Donors: Nancy and Chuck Carpenter
Painted by: LCQT Artistic Team
Lady of the Lake, a well known quilt pattern, is also the name of an historic pear label. The label was used at Mt Konocti Growers, an agricultural pear cooperative that was started in 1926. At the height of the production, there were 22,000 tons of pears processed per year. In 2004 a group of the coop-members began making and distributing a sparkling pear wine using the Lady of the Lake pear label. This quilt square honors the historic pear industry and the new wine industry of Lake County.
