About Author Marci Baker:

Book Table of Contents

Recognized internationally for her expertise in quilting, Marci enjoys sharing ideas that simplify the process of quilting. A native of Dallas, Texas, Marci has loved sewing for years. She began teaching quilting in 1989 for her local quilting guild and shops. Marci graduated with a bachelors and master's degree in math. In 1993 she started Alicia's Attic with the concepts that combine her love of math with her love of quilting.

As an admirer of traditional quilts, Marci was inspired to author books on Not Your Grandmother's Quilts™. This series uses the traditional patterns people associate with their grandmother and simplifies the technique.

Marci spends much of the year traveling, teaching classes for quilting guilds and trade shows. Enthusiasm and inspiration for quilting can be seen throughout her lectures, workshops and books.

In 2006 she expanded Alicia's Attic by purchasing Clearview Triangle from Sara Nephew. They are collaborating on new designs and techniques and have co-authored Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin. These ideas and Marci's simplifying methods have come together as "The Clearview of Quilting", inspiring today's quilter.

Marci and her husband, Clint and their sons, Kevin and Marcus, currently live in Fort Collins, Colorado, near the mountains where they enjoy the beauty of nature's creation.
