Nancy Mahoney
Lecture:  Scrap Quilts and Trunk Show

You won't want to miss Nancy's solution for all the scraps you've collected in bags, baskets, and boxes. Nancy will share more than 50 scraps quilts, including vintage quilts from her collection. Hear how her love of vintage quilts has influenced her approach to quiltmaking. Nancy will share tips for making stunning scrap quilts and expanding your thoughts about making scrap quilts.

Nancy has enjoyed making quilts for over 30 years, during which time an impressive range of her beautiful quilts have been featured in over 180 national and international quilt magazines. 

She has also created over 100 quilt patterns for a variety of fabric manufacturers.
Since 2001 Nancy, has authored 14 books and designed 15 fabric collections, including five 30's reproduction collections for P&B Textiles.  Nancy's newest book, Learn to Paper Piece, was published in 2016.

When she is not designing and making quilts, Nancy enjoys traveling around the country, sharing her quilts, teaching her piecing and machine applique techniques and visiting gardens.

Happy Autumn

The Flying Geese Quilters Guild general membership meetings, offer quilt related programs from an extraordinarily talented membership and other locally recognized fiber artists, as well as nationally and internationally recognized guest speakers. Our speakers are quilters, quilt designers, clothing designers, doll makers, and textile designers – in other words, experts who impact our love of quilting. Without fail each month our guild members present a spectacular Show and Tell and a hint of the quilt show we present every other year. Before the meeting and during break there is time to browse our extensive lending library, socialize, and enter opportunity drawings for small wall hangings and door prizes. Between meetings we offer a variety of activities, such as workshops, philanthropy sewing days, and small friendship quilt group meetings.

The Flying Geese Quilters Guild was founded in 1985 by a group of about 30 quilters.  In the past 29 years the guild has grown to approximately 300 members. The quilters guild was organized to promote and educate its members and the public in the techniques and methods of creative quilting and fiber arts, to preserve the heritage of quilt making, and to promote quilt related activities.  Regular meetings usually feature nationally known speakers. Members can also attend some speaker's workshops for a small fee.  Other benefits of membership include opportunities to join friendship groups, check books out from the Guild’s extensive library, and participate in quilt related philanthropic and community education projects. Other activities include a biennial quilt show, biennial quilt auction, and quilt retreats.
