Alex Anderson’s love of quilting all began in 1978 when she completed her Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt as a part of her work towards her degree in art from San Francisco State University. Over the years her central focus has been to understand fabric relationships and an intense appreciation of traditional quilts and beautiful quilting surface design.

Alex is the author of 30 books in four languages selling over 1 million copies worldwide. She is a designer of fabrics with RJR Fabrics, and Co- Creater with RNK Distributing (Floriani) of the Quilters Select brand.

Alex is a founding partner of The Quilt and The Quilt Life magazine (publisher AQS) with Ricky Tims. The Quilt Show is the world’s first full-service interactive online video/web TV created just for quilters worldwide. With over 140,000+ registered members in over 100 countries, The Quilt’s mission is to educate, inspire, entertain, connect and grow the world quilting community in a fun, positive and interactive environment. The Quilt Life Magazine (2009 – 2014) celebrated the lifestyle of today’s quiltmaker in a fresh and beautiful format. In 2010 it was awarded one of the The Library Journal’s top ten new magazines.

Alex was chosen as the 2008 Silver Star Award winner given annually by the International Quilt Festival to a “whose work and influence has made — and continues to make — a sizable and positive impact on the quilting industry and community.” She was also chosen by the readers of Quilter’s Newsletter magazine (Feb 2009) as “The Most Influential Person in The Quilting Industry” (in a three-way tie with Ricky Tims and Karey Bresenhan of Quilts, Inc)

Alex’s personal mission is not only to share her love of quilting with anyone who will listen, but to educate and encourage those interested in quilting as clearly and simply as possible, so quilting can continue to be handed down from generation to generation. or
