Author Nancy Johnson-SrebroAbout the Author

Grandma Garrison was Nancy's mentor while she made her first quilt in 1972. Gram asked her to cut a 6-inch square template from paper and pin it on some fabric. Using regular scissors, quite dull, Nancy cut around the paper template. After cutting about two dozen squares, she noticed some of the squares were not the same size. Gram asked if she was cutting any of the paper template off when you she cut around it. Her response "No, only once in a while!" That was Nancy's first lesson in accuracy and it has stuck with her all these years. Today her hallmark is accuracy.

She has written several best-selling books, including Featherweight 22l: The Perfect Portable and Rotary Magic. Nancy also refined how to work with squares and rectangles in her other best-selling books Block Magic, Block Magic, Too! and Stars by Magic.

Recently she was granted a U.S. patent for her innovative technique used for making Eight-Point Stars from squares and rectangles.

Her hobbies include reading mysteries, traveling to see children and grandchildren, working in her flower garden and making baby quilts for charity. In recent years, she has donated more than 600 quilts to brighten the lives of needy children and parents. Nancy lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Frank.
