2016 Quilt Projects

CAMEO Quilt Guild Challange: Favorite Michigan Season
by Nancy Bekofske
It seemed like I have not made many quilts in 2016 because so many are still in process. But I did finish some a few projects and tops.

I made two small quilts for my sister-in-law using her heirloom lace.

Every month new blocks for the 1857 Album Quilt are released by Sentimental Stitches. The project will continue into 2017.

I also completed a quilt top that used my father-in-law's shirts.

My very favorite quilt of 2016 is William Shakespeare. The idea came to me in the morning, I was at the quilt shop buying fabric before noon, and had the design worked out and cutting started before day's end.

I made this in a hexies class with Mary Clark.

Another top I finished was Kit Fox, a pattern  from Sew Fresh Quilts.

After Will I made Edgar Allan Poe.

My John Quincy Adams quilt spent the year traveling across the country with Sue Reich's President Quilts exhibit.

John Q and my Redwork quilt Remember the Ladies appeared in Sue's book Quilts Presidential & Patriotic.

I have not finished Hazel or Love Entwinned from Esther Aliu. Or the Tigers quilt. Or finished quilting the Austen Family Album! I have three Gatsby blocks done.

Plus I am working on Icicle Days from Bunny Hill, an applique quilt of ice skates!

I really need to work on those UFOS!
