Author Betty AldermanAbout the Author

Betty Alderman has been designing and publishing her patterns under her own name since 1992. Designing and making quilts is the perfect fit for Betty as she has a background in fine arts and has had a passion for sewing and "making things" since she was a child.

Most of her designs are applique or embroidery or a combination of both. In addition to publishing her own patterns, she has two books published by AQS, Favorite Redwork Designs and Favorite Applique and Embroidery Quilts. When time permits she teaches and does trunk shows throughout the United States

Mother of three grown children and grandmother of six, Betty resides in Palmyra, New York, with her husband, Fred..
