Nancy Sterett Martin is a retired Interior Designer, but still an artist and a quilter from Owensboro, Kentucky. She first discovered quilting as an art form after attending a few quilt shows in the late nineties. With her 43 years in interior design, along with owning and managing her Interior Design Studio and Gift Shop and a custom drapery workroom, her resulting knowledge of fabrics gave her an edge to easily make the transition into the quilt world.
Using techniques such as fabric manipulation, beading, applique, airbrushing, silk screening, hand painting and many other types of embellishments, Nancy focused on creating contemporary art quilts. She enjoys the whole process, which includes sewing, drawing her designs, and dyeing and painting most of her fabrics.
When we asked about her favorite quilt or wallhanging, she claims it's always the "next one" she is going to create. According to Nancy, her journey is just beginning, and her goal is to live long enough to sew up all of her stash! (Frankly, that could be a very long time.)
