Patty Martin, Math Checker
Patty Martin, who lives in Fair Oaks, California, is the math checker for patterns published in AQ (yes, there IS such a job!). Patty's background includes a bachelor of science degree in math and computer science from the University of Texas at Arlington and work experience as a programmer and analyst for over 20 years. She now works part-time in a quilt shop and teaches quilting. In addition to math, Patty is skilled in piecing, appliqué, machine quilting, garment construction, pattern design, Electric Quilt software, and proofreading. Patty checks yardages, makes sure diagrams are correct, and goes over every pattern and many of the math-oriented technique articles with a fine-toothed comb to check for clarity, accuracy, and ease of construction.
