Olivia Newton-John & daughter Chloe: ‘WE SAVED EACH OTHER'S LIVES'
Woman's Day Australia|February 15, 2021
After enduring decades of health ups and downs, the famous mother and daughter find solace in one another
They’ve always shared a close bond, but it took a global pandemic to bring Olivia Newton-John and her daughter Chloe Lattanzi back into one another’s lives.

“Chloe lives in Portland, Oregon, so I don’t see her very often,” says Olivia. “But one of the gifts of this pandemic has been being able to spend time with Chloe because neither of us have been able to go anywhere or do anything.

“She came here [to Olivia's ranch in Santa Ynez, California] for a couple of months and is back now for some time.”

The road to their reunion has been a rocky one, and the famous mother-daughter duo have weathered their share of tough times, including health battles for them both.

For Olivia, it’s been a three-decade-long fight against breast cancer – diagnosed in 1992, doctors discovered her cancer had metastasised in 2013 and by 2017, it had progressed to stage four cancer that had spread to her spine.

Cut from the Same Cloth

“Turkey Tracks” is a 19th-century quiltmaking pattern that has the appearance of little wandering feet. Patterns like the tracks, and their traditions and myths, have been passed down through the generations, from their frontier beginnings to today, where a generation of makers has embraced the material as a means of creating something new. Olivia Jondle is one such designer. Here, she’s taken an early turkey track-pattern quilt, cut it into various shapes, and stitched the pieces together, adding calico and other fabric remnants as needed. The result is a trench coat she calls the Pale Calico Coat. Her designs are for sale at The Rusty Bolt, Jondle’s small-batch fashion company based in St. Louis. —SAMANTHA STEVENSON
