Designer Profile

Scott Hansen of Blue Nickel Studios

www.bluenickelstudios.com

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 any time soon. Mostly self-taught, Scott has found his bliss in the needle and cloth and the glorious combinations of color in this medium. He has designed and created quilts for many fabric manufacturing companies and has had many other quilt designs featured in many leading quilt magazines. He speaks and teaches locally and regionally, sharing his designs and color philosophies. He graduated from Washington State University with honors in English, but quilting and textiles have become his passion.

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 is thrilled to have taught at Quilters’ Affair program that is part of the world famous Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in Sisters, Oregon for five summers now. He is game to keep teaching there every summer that he is able. You can follow him on Instagram and Facebook

We are delighted to have Scott designing his debut fabric collection "Tie One On" for Banyan Batiks. It's inspired by vintage ties from the 1950's and brings an urban flare to the world of batiks!
