November 29, 2017 .... A night with Nancy Mc Nally

.

.

Newest pattern in progress ... Sneak Peek

.
Over 20 years ago Nancy  was introduced into the world of quilting by accident.  She was attending a “back to school” picnic with several moms. These moms were quilters and brought show and tell…like she learned all quilters love to do! They pulled their quilts out of their bags and she was hooked! Who knew you buy fabric, cut apart, and sew it all back together? And why would anyone do this? To make these beautiful quilts!

She began sewing by learning how to piece garments, she  learned quickly… she did not like it. She then decided it was time to try quilting, after all she loved what I saw from the other moms.  There was no turning back…
Advance about 15 years later, 2 longarm machines, lots of fabric purchases, tools, notions, she took the plunge and decided to start designing quilts. Nancy was already teaching how to piece a quilt, so why not try the next step of designing
and getting published in a magazine.... and she did just that…and the rest is history!  
.
Nancy McNally is a professional long arm quilter, designer, author and quilt teacher.  She has taught at many local quilt shop, at retreats and quilting events, on line classes in Annie's Crafts and has a CRAFTSY Block of the Month class.   ( links below.)   She will be at the guild to show her own quilts for our trunk show.  Nancy has been a guild member for several years so she has a lot to show us.
