Nancy’s Spectacular Quilts Are Based on Books!

Quilter’s Name: Nancy Bekofske from Detroit, Michigan

Type of Quilt: Quilts with Book Themes

Name of Pattern: Original Designs

Featured Date: 8-17-23

My name is Nancy Bekofske and I live in Metro Detroit. I made my first quilt in 1991. A few months later I saw an inspiring quilt show and set to develop the skills to make my own original quilts. I joined an old fashioned quilt group in 1991 and those ladies taught me everything. They made a quilt and sat around a quilt frame to quilt. It was sold and the proceeds went to charities.  I also make reproduction quilts and quilts using handkerchiefs and vintage fabrics.

I am also a lifelong reader and majored in English. I have had a blog about books and quilts since 2008 and began book reviewing as an influencer in 2014. I combine my two loves by making storybook quilts and quilts portraying writers. You can check out my blog at https://theliteratequilter.wordpress.com/
Thank you for the opportunity to share my quilts.
