2 First Place Ribbons won by Ninety-nine year young woman

One of the pages I follow is the Sister’s Outdoor Quilt Show Facebook page. Showing up on my feed today was an article from the Lake County Examiner, Lake View, Oregon on a woman who won 2 first place ribbons for a quilt she entered in the Lake County Fair.

Please take a moment to click on the link – you won’t be disappointed. Fernette Weaver is priceless and the quilt a masterpiece and oh yes she is a hand piecer and quilter.

    Well, she’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! And that’s an amazing quilt–really hard to piece accurately, I would think. May we all be stitching at 99!

      I hadn’t even stretched my imagination to 99 and still hand quilting…a new goal is possible!
