16 in 16

A few years ago I posted a 13 in 13 list and I finished quite a few of them.  Now I'm going for 16 in 16.  These are all in various stages of completion - hopefully I will get them all done and a picture posted here by Next Year.

  1. January Sunbonnet Sue  
    Sunbonnet Sue Hits the Slopes in January.
    Completed January 5, 2016 after sitting in the UFO pile for at least 3 years.
  2. February Sunbonnet Sue
    February SunBonnet Sue Completed on January 30, 2016 after sitting in the UFO pile for at least 3 years - possibly longer
  3. June Sunbonnet Sue 
    June SunBonnet Sue is part of the SunBonnet Sue Through the Year.  This is the final piece of my collection after sitting in the UFO pile for 3 years or more.  She is on her Honeymoon cruise.  It is all machine worked and was completed May 16, 2016
  4. Attic Window Nativity Scene
  5. Craftsy Block of the Month
  6. Maxine Patriotic quilt
    Maxine's America is made from a Panel showcasing Maxine's opinions of America and American society - very funny.  Anyway the quilt is machine pieced and quilted.  I completed it in June of 2016 and it will probably be gifted to a family member.
  7. Flower Garden Quilt 
    The Flower Garden Quilt was started about 2 years ago as a quick, easy fun project.  It was another one that got set aside in favor of a more urgent project and then more or less forgotten.  I pulled it out this year and finished it on September 27, 2016.  It is machine pieced and hand quilted and will probably be gifted to a family member at a later date.
  8. Women of the Bible Quilt
    Women of the Bible - the quilt is from a weekly online Bible Study and quilt group.  Each block represents a different Woman of the Bible who we studied for the week.  It took me nearly four years to totally complete the quilt.  The blocks are a combination of hand and machine piecing and Applique and it is hand quilted.  I completed it on June 3, 2016.
  9. Flying Swallows Wall Hanging 
    Flying Swallows was a class I took back in October 2015.  It gave me fits and when I got home I tossed it in a corner and tried to forget about it.  But it was in the way of other projects and I didn't want to toss it so I buckled down and finished  it on January 14, 2016.  It is Machine Pieced using a Studio 180 La Moine Star tool and Machine quilted - practicing a meander stitch with my walking foot.
  10. Row by Row Experience 2015
    I started this quilt last June when they started the Row x Row shop hopl  There are 18 rows on this quilt coming from 18 quilt ships in Illinois, Iowa and Missouri.  It was a fun shop hop and fun to design.  It is machine quilted, machine pieced/appliqued/embroidered.   I completed it on June 1st, 2016.  I may or may not collect some rows from the 2015 shop hop - if I do it will certainly be a lot less/
  11. Christmas Quilt
  12. Loyal Union Soldier Quilt
  13. Mission Quilt top for church
    This is on my 16 in 16 list because I have had these 5 1/2 blocks sitting on the shelf in my quilt studio for at least 4 years, maybe 5.  It was always intended as a Charity Quilt, but I never seemed to find the time to put the pieces together.  I finally finished in on February 2, 2016.  I will drop it off at the Church over the weekend for the ladies to tie it.
  14. Play Mat quilt 
I found this panel on one of my quilt shop hops several years ago and kept planning on making it up and just never got around to it.  Finally I decided it needed to be done and given to some little boy who would enjoy it.  The border is machine pieced and it is machine quilted.  I finished it in September 2016.

15. Welcome Sampler
This is a very special piece with a special history that has been 50 years in the making.  The center embroidery was made by my cousin Eileen Pugsley back in 1965 and given to me as a gift.  It hung in my house for many years and then somehow got misplaced.  I found it a while back and cleaned it up and decided to quilt it, but it got put on the back burner for more "important" projects.  This year I decided it needed to be finished and displayed.  I completed it on March 15, 2016 and it is hanging over the stairs in the entryway.
