Inspired by the popular embroidered redwork quilts of the early part of the century, Betty Alderman, a well-known collector and designer, brings a fresh, updated look to this timeless favorite with garden-themed and other new designs. Illustrations and patterns guide you through making a quilt with designs inspired by botanical prints. The traceable patterns can be used for embroidery, applique, quilting, or wearable art projects. AUTHORBIO: Betty’s designs culminate from a background beginning with a fine arts education at Syracuse University, ownership of a yarn shop where she also designed needlepoint canvases, to the buying and selling of antique quilts while she was living in central Ohio. Her inspiration is derived from her past knowledge, her continued enthusiasm, and current research for her quilt pattern business, Betty Alderman Designs. REVIEW: Betty brings a fresh, garden-theme look to the current embroidered quilt revival! The traceable patterns can be used for embroidery, applique, or quilting. Illustrations help guide you in choosing a quilt: the Birds And The Bees quilt with a garden chair, birdhouse, birdbath, and bee skep; or Sunbonnet Sues growing flowers and winning a first prize, among others.
