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.

Format: Paperback
A fresh approach to an old idea.
Betty Aldermans' designs are updated and fresh, not the dour old penny square designs of yesterday. Her book contains 80+ designs and clear, complete, and easy-to-follow instructions for making eight projects. But that is just the beginning. The botanical, gardening, and small bird and animal designs lend themselves easily to mixing and creating your own original. The teacups and teapots are terrific. Best of all, Sunbonnet Sue finally received the facelift she so desperately needed. Alphabet Sue is just perfect for child's quilt. Sue with a tennis racquet is precious. I never thought I'd see Sue at a Xerox machine--definitely not your grandma's Sue.
If you're looking for a fresh approach to redwork, this book is for you.
