Nancy McNally is passionate about every aspect of quilting -- designing, piecing, quilting and binding. For nearly 20 years, Nancy has been fascinated with the idea of taking whole pieces of fabric, cutting them up and then sewing them back together into a beautiful quilt. As she says, "I simply cannot imagine life without quilting!"
Nancy was not introduced to quilting by a family member like many quilters. Instead, she caught the bug one afternoon at a play date as she witnessed several other mothers pull out their quilts for a show-and-tell at the local park. She was hooked! Nancy was adopted, and after learning about her biological family, she discovered that her great-grandmother had been a quilter. Nancy now knows that quilting is in her blood! Throughout the years, Nancy has explored deep into the world of quilting and gives thanks to her husband, family, friends and shop owner and Quilter's World editor, Carolyn Vagts. She greatly appreciates their support and coaching to further her love of quilting. She could not have done it without them! Nancy's work has been published in various publications and magazines, including Annie's Quilter's World magazine.
Thank you for this class! Every step was explained so well, I easily understood the technique and was able to make a lot of projects right away! It is great to take a class and be able to apply everything you learned without a problem! I especially liked the fact that besides the piece stitching order, the stitch lines were also marked with letters. That helped me a lot to be successful, as I am a beginner!
This was a wonderful informative and easy to follow class for beginners like me. I stopped in the middle and actually went and made the pot holder, turned out fantastic. Heading into the room to start the star quilt. Thanks so much Nancy. You were a great instructor, loved the humor and friendliness and attitude. Keep it up.
Nancy does a great job teaching paper piecing and has inspired me to try it. Nancy's teaching style is clear and concise -- I will take her other available class and hope she does others soon. You will not be disappointed in her!
Hi everyone just like to sew if you are new to sewing give Nancy class go she makes sewing fun and you learn a lot too. I have just started to make my first pot holder and the way Nancy goes threw the stage bit-by-bit is just great. I'm having great fun with this online class, just hoping Nancy gets some more classes soon. Thank you I think I have find my new pastime.
After viewing this class, I was looking for a project to do with some fabric I had received in a Christmas exchange. I found a pattern for a table runner that uses the same technic as this class, only instead of paper, it utilizes another fabric base. GENIOUS! As a truly beginner in quilting, it is the most fun I had in a long time! I think I've found my retirement pastime! =;-D
