The Kenai River Quilt Tour is afoot in Soldotna with pieces of all sizes, shapes and colors at 16 different businesses.
Pat Reese, the owner of Robin Place Fabrics, has been spearheading the showcase for many years. She said the central peninsula has a talented group of women who make quality quilts.
“There’s a lot of talent and interest here,” she said.
The tour runs through July.
The Soldotna Visitor Center is distributing quilt passports for the event. Participants who view the pieces in at least 12 of the 16 businesses that host them can be entered to win a prize worth $100.
Last year, Reese said, she couldn’t host the tour because of the coronavirus pandemic. But this year it’s back in full swing.
For an additional entry in the prize pool, post a tour selfie on the Soldotna Chamber of Commerce Facebook page with the hashtag #kenairiverquilttour. All names must be entered for the drawing by 5 p.m. on July 31, but participants don’t need to be present to win.
