Having grown up surrounded by quilts made by both of her grandmothers, Nancy Allen of Bountiful, Utah, started her first quilt when she was about 12 years old. By her estimate, Nancy has a big enough stash of blocks of the month, quilt kits, and fabric that she could make more than 50 quilts without buying fabric except perhaps for backing. She hopes that her quilt designs inspire quilters to use up some fabric–or perhaps to buy some more.
