Best of 2016

It's time to reflect on the past year and celebrate some of our best quilts of 2016!  Here are my 5 favorite.

1. Rainbow Bargello - My favorite quilt of the year won Viewer's Choice at this fall's Blogger's Quilt Festival. I was so excited because it was my first time to win something! 

2. Charming Plus Quilt - I do love a scrappy quilt!  One of my favorites because it uses little fabric pieces from a lot of past quilts.  Lots of memories in this one.

3. Yellow and Gray Patchwork - Also a scrappy quilt, this one used yellow, gray and black quilts.  Yellow is probably my favorite color to mix with black and gray,  I made several yellow and gray quilts this year, but this was my favorite.

 4. Minecraft - This is on the list because we were blessed with provision with these quilts.  I made 19 minecraft quilts of different sizes this year and sold them in my etsy shop. It was a family project. The kids were laying out blocks and my husband helped with ironing. I am thankful the Lord provided this kind of work for me.

5. Country Floral -   Just so you don't think all I make is quilts with bold colors, I add this soft pink quilt to my favorites.  It was my favorite country floral quilt from this year.  I really do love working with all colors.

Honorable Mention

6. Postcard from Sweden - I couldn't just pick 5! I've made 2 of these quilts because I didn't have the bright colors I wanted the first time around.  So glad I did because this quilt is beautiful! Myra is hosting a quilt-a-long in this pattern in the coming new year. You can the quilt-a-long at Busy Hands Quilts. I hope you'll join in the fun.
