About the Author
Nancy Scott grew up on a farm in northeastern Indiana. When not busy with livestock chores, she spent most of her time with her Grandma Scott, who was an avid hand quilter. On a daily basis, it wasn’t unusual to walk into Grandma Scott’s house and find the kitchen table covered with cardboard templates, fabrics and quilt blocks in progress. By the time Nancy went to kindergarten, she was already helping layer the quilt back, batting and top to get it ready for the frame. It was from these beginnings that Nancy developed her love of quilts. Twenty years later, while Nancy was contemplating a career change, a friend invited her over to “play” on her longarm quilting machine. While it may not have been “love at first stitch,” Nancy definitely saw the possibilities. Within a few months she purchased a longarm quilting machine and started Masterpiece Quilting LLC in 2006. Since then her business as evolved to include longarm quilting services using both computerized and free motion patterns, along with custom made quilts, show quilts and pattern design. Nancy has also authored the Annie’s book T-Shirts, Memories & More and is the class instructor for Learn to Make T-Shirt Quilts.
