Celtic StarBlock Number: 197
On March 12th, The McDowell Quilt Trail added a new block to the Lake James Quilt Trail. We have 9 quilt blocks that can only be viewed by boat. This trail makes the McDowell Quilt Trail unique. Diane Scheller is a master quilter and their home is filled with her beautiful quilts. This block, # 197, came from a block in one of her quilts. She, like any quilter, knew exactly what colors she wanted to use. “Celtic Star” is the name of this smart looking block and it graces their boat dock. Her husband, Michael, loves the lake and his sailboat is named “Celtic Storm”. The name of the block and boat help reflect his Irish heritage. What a relaxing place to spend a quiet afternoon and enjoy a quilt block.
