Nancy Halvorsen has been designing quilt patterns and project books since 1992. “I’ve always been interested in creating, drawing and sewing since I was a little girl”. Soon after she learned to quilt, she started designing her own patterns for herself and her home. After receiving lots of positive feedback, she started publishing her own patterns. As another outlet for her creativity, and to add an exciting new aspect to her quilt designing, she started designing fabrics for Benartex in 1997. Nancy’s innovative and appealing Art to Heart designs and fabrics are recognized and loved around the world. She has published 54 books and 67 patterns with more on the way! She is always working on new patterns, fabric collections and project designs, finding inspiration everywhere. Many of her designs have positive, uplifting messages and images. “I design projects that I want my family to see. I always love to include quilt and project designs for quilters of all experience levels, a little something for everyone.”
Besides her love of sewing and quilting, Nancy loves chocolate and being out in nature. The highlights of her life are spending time with her husband, Rick, her four children and their spouses, and nine grandchildren! See her designs at arttoheart.com.
