Even though Seward Quilters have been slowing down on their stitching this summer, things are still ticking along. This last Sunday was the halfway mark through the yearlong UFO Contest. Becky Buchanan had the highest percentage completed at 60.9%. Diane Owens had the most projects completed at 6. Heather Johnston and Sharon Treece split the Voter’s Choice. There was food, visiting and laughter. Quite a number of quilters were in and out visiting.
The group has been making lap quilts for the residents at Mountain Haven here in Seward. They’ve gotten 17 tops done, with most of those being quilted. The goal is slightly upwards of 30, and for a dormant period in the quilting year, we’re doing very well! The pattern is one adapted by Heather Johnston, and the donated fabric had been kitted up for people to do. The red, white and black ones in the photo are stunning!
