About the Author
Betty Alderman has been designing patterns for quilts since 1992. With a background in fine arts and a lifelong love of sewing, quilt designing seems to suit her perfectly. She markets her patterns under the name Betty Alderman Designs. In addition to teaching at guilds around the country, Betty is a quilt collector. She enjoys speaking about her antique quilts, imparting interseting facts and stories about her collection. When she is not busy with her quilt design business or traveling to a teaching engagement, Betty is at home with her husband, Fred. While they will testify that the New York summers are delightful, Betty and Fred try to enjoy a little sunshine during the winter months by traveling south in their motor home.
