About Author Marci Baker:

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.
