Author for That Patchwork Place/Martingale

Donna has been sewing since the age of four and quilting since 1975. She began teaching in 1981, and since 1988 she has been a National Quilting Association certified teacher for basic quiltmaking (NQACT). While an army wife, she lived in Germany for four years and taught at a German shop and various guilds throughout the country. Long out of the Army, the Thomases have settled in Kansas for good, although Donna's teaching still takes her around the country. The author of many previous quilting titles with Martingale, she has also contributed articles on various quilt-related subjects to numerous publications over the years.

Her greatest joy is her husband, Terry; their two sons, Joe and Pete; and lovely daughters-in-law, Katie and Nikki. Life just keeps getting better since Joe and Katie added little Miss Charlotte to the family. This absolutely perfect-in-every-way granddaughter (no doting there!) lives minutes away, and loves playing in her grandmother's fabric.

Donna and her husband provide accommodations and staff assistance to their three cats, Max, Jack, and Skittles, and a kiddie pool and ear scratches to one sunny golden retriever, Brandy. All the quilts in her house are lovingly "pre-furred."
