HARFORD TOWNSHIP -- Newswatch 16 stopped at the Harford Fair in Susquehanna County Wednesday night and found an amazing woman and her amazing first-place quilt.

Anna Salmon, from Moosic, turns 93 in September.

It took her six months to make the ribbon-winning quilt.

Meg Swantek, also of Moosic, helped her do it.

"It was sheer determination. We couldn't just leave it unfinished, so together I would make many trips back and forth to her house and she would use a magnifying glass to tell me what I was doing wrong, and then I would come back and it was a journey of love though. We finally got it finished and we're just happy to be here," said Swantek.

Anna says due to health reasons this is the last quilt she will ever do.
