Marci Baker About the Author:

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, making her first quilt at age 9 and sewing her own clothes in high school and college. 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. Quilting became a great way to share her knowledge with others

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. She has invented several tools to help make quilting easier for all. Her Know Before You Sew™ solution cards take common problems quilters encounter and provide-easy-to-understand solutions.

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, their sons Kevin and Marcus and the family pet snake Scooby, currently live in Fort Collins, Colorado, near the mountains where they enjoy the beauty of life brought by nature's creation.
