Scott Hansen says  “I could say. .. when 15 prints aren’t enough, add 23 more. And my sign off line Keep Sewing, Keep Happy”

Scott is the Mad Color Scientist at Blue Nickel Studios which he runs from his rural home in the Pacific Northwest, smack dab between the Cascade Mountains and the suburbs of Seattle. He has been quilting for more than half of his life now and doesn’t see fit to change that anytime soon.

Throughout the years, Scott’s aesthetic has continued to evolve from very country, traditional roots into a more modern contemporary design into what he has dubbed under the Blue Nickel Label as “Urban Folk — Modern Design.”

Scott also served on the staff of Generation Q Magazine as Community Editor from 2011 to 2015. Now w he does occasional design work with them. Generation Q is a quilting lifestyle magazine that it full of content and modern projects….and not very many ads! And it is a small compact size which is perfect for throwing in a bag for on-the-go reading!

In his spare time, he tries to maintain his sanity along with the house he built and acreage he thinks can still be the park he envisioned 20+ years ago. He is married to his wife of 25+ years, Linda, a talented mixed-media/doll-loving artist herself, and they have three young adult children, who give them all sorts of joy and challenges as they are stretching their wings to leave the nest. He loves God, his family, trees, architecture, gardens, color, cats, vintage and modern textiles, art, pattern, meeting new people, design, Christmas, books, the color red, fashion history, his curly mustache (when it’s in season), and a great many other marvelous people, ideas, and things.
