What makes Nancy's Quilts Special?
Thread painting is a unique way to embellishing your quilts by using the quilt top or a printed design on stabilizer as your canvas and the thread as your paint. It is fun and addictive!!
Thread sketching gives the essentials of a design without all the detail – in other words an idea of the design.
Derwent Inktense Pencils
Creating with Derwent Inktense pencils is as easy as coloring – pencil the design on fabric and transform the colors with Nancy’s special fabric medium to create dramatic works of art.
Declaration of Independence - The Painting
Voices of Freedom - The Quilt
Nancy's Latest Competitive Quilt
While standing in the rotunda of the United States of American Capitol building, I was in awe of John Trumbull’s painting depicting the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Recreating the painting as a quilt was the challenge I was looking for to push the limits of thread painting.
Nancy's Quilt Gallery
Thread painting is the prominent denominator throughout all of Nancy’s award-winning quilts. Her objective being a detailed oriented artist is that all thread painting figures or elements are entirely realistic and represent in all aspects what the design would look like in nature.

Quilt Guilds and Shows
Students in my workshops do amazing work. The Student Showcase is to let those that wish to exhibit their work from either workshops they have taken from me or projects resulting from their own imagination. A huge thank you to all that participate!!
