Sackets Harbor, NY – Seaway Trail, Inc. has announced the Viewers Choice winners of the 2013 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Beauty of the Byways Quilt Show endorsed by the National Scenic Byway Foundation.

Louise Furber of Phelps, NY, took top honors with her Quilts for Sale wallhanging based on photos taken by her husband, David, along the Lake Ontario stretch of the 518-mile Great Lakes Seaway Trail that parallels the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, Niagara River and Lake Erie in New York and Pennsylvania.

Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Show Manager Lynette Lundy-Beck said, “We are pleased our visitors selected the barn scene quilt by Louise Furber as their favorite entry as it is a fine example of our 2014 show theme of Vineyards, Fields, Farms and Food.”

“I am thrilled to be the Viewers Choice winner of the Great Lakes Seaway Trail Quilt Show. I redrew and resized two Joan’s Own patterns and experimented with different textures, threads, embroidery, and stitching techniques to create a tribute to all the quilts for sale thrown over fences and lined up in barns and country shops along the Great Lakes Seaway Trail and throughout America,” Furber said.

Runner-up honors went to Jan English of Lisbon, NY, for her 84-inch October Sky quilt based on a pattern by Cathy Wierzbicki and made with hand-dyed fabrics.

Carol Soucy of Mexico was voted 3rd Choice for her original landscape art design of the waterfront at Mexico Point Park on the Great Lakes Seaway Trail Route 104B in Oswego County.

She said, “This quilt was inspired by a photograph in the 2009 Oswego Emergency Calendar by Susan Altimonda. Mexico Point Park is a favorite location for fun times for my family and friends.”

The theme for the 2014 show is Vineyards, Fields, Farms and Food.
