About the Author
Grandma Garrison was Nancy's mentor while she made her first quilt in 1972. She asked her to cut a 6" 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. Nancy called Gram and said, "My blocks don't seem to be the same size." Gram replied, "Are you cutting any of the paper template off when you cut around it?" Nancy replied, " 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 and she stresses it with students and attributes the wide recognition of her work to this continued emphasis.
She has written several best-selling books including Featherweight 221: The Perfect Portable, Block Magic, Block Magic, Too! and Stars by Magic. Nancy has been a spokesperson of Onmigrid, a division of Prym Consumer USA, Inc. for over 16 years. Nancy lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Frank. They have three grown children and one granddaughter. She travels extensively to teach and lecture on the wonderful art of quiltmaking.
