SACKETS HARBOR — Jan English of Lisbon took runner-up honors in the 2013 Great Lakes Seaway Trail Beauty of the Byways Quilt Show “viewers choice” awards.

Ms. English won for her 84-inch quilt “October Sky,” based on a pattern by Cathy Wierzbicki and made with hand-dyed fabrics.

“This was my first attempt at quilting,” she said in a news release from the Great Lakes Seaway Trail. “I wanted to show the beautiful hues of fall along the Great Lakes Seaway Trail. At the end of a sunny fall day on the St. Lawrence River, the breathtaking sunsets showcase the departing Canadian geese as they head south for another winter.”

Visitors to the quilt show voted on their favorite entries, which showcased byway experiences along Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence.

More information about the show is online at www.seawaytrail.com .
