A few years ago I became acquainted with Nancy Mahoney when I became a Martingale & Co. author. She was the editor on my first book, Fresh and Fabulous Quilts! I will admit I was a little taken aback at first at the editing process, but I’ve become a firm believer in the importance of a good editor! I’m very grateful for the work she did on my book, and I’m a better writer because of her skills.
In addition to being an editor, Nancy has authored 13 of her own titles with Martingale & Co., as well as having been published in over 175 quilt magazines! I noticed from her blog that she has been part of the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks series, which I’ve been published in also. She is a talented woman, who also has designed 15 fabric collections for P&B Textiles and Clothworks. She teaches workshops across the nation and at many quilt conferences.
I was thrilled when I contacted her about this post that she actually remembered me! (Maybe my manuscript was so bad it left an impression?) Anyway, without further ado, here are some beautiful quilts by Nancy.
These first two are from her most recent book, Simple Circles and Quick Curves – Machine Appliqué the Easy Way. I just love the bright, fun colors, and I especially love the appliquéd one.
Here is a beautiful quilt from Nancy’s book, Kaleidoscope Paper Piecing. I love the movement in this quilt, not to mention the fabulous border!
Here are some free downloadable patterns from Nancy’s website. The first one is a lovely pastel quilt, and, again, the border is so great.
This next one is so fun and different! It looks like she’s used batiks, which are my favorite.
I love how fun and bright the next one is! It looks like it would be so much fun to make.
To change gears a little bit, Nancy has authored several books about the ’30’s style quilts. Here are a couple of quilts from those.
Here are just a few more of Nancy’s beautiful quilts.
I hope you enjoyed this SMALL sampling of Nancy’s wonderful talent and her quilts! Check out all the more designs at her website, and at Martingale & Co., website, and look for her books at your local quilt store.
