Tonya Alexander is a mom to two, a wife to one, and a quilter to many of her friends and family. She says that she is an accidental quilter by home-decorating necessity; her first quilt was meant to be her only quilt. But a love of fabric, scraps, and stash quickly overtook her. She follows in the footsteps of many talented women in her family, especially her grandmother, the real maker of all things wonderful; her mother, the best home economics teacher ever; and many more.
Tonya has had quilts featured in several magazines, and she is the author of Stash Lab. She lives and quilts in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where there are more good quilting days and shades of green than she ever imagined. Visit her at EyeCandyQuilts.blogspot.com.
