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.
