BAD - Betty Alderman Designs - Betsy Alderman Lewis

Hello there!

I'm Betsy Alderman Lewis, owner of Betty Alderman Designs, originally founded by my mother, Betty. Mom was an author and prolific quilt pattern designer known for her sunbonnet quilt designs. She was also recognized as one of the “ladies of redwork”.

I worked for Betty Alderman Designs for many years, assisting with shipping, editing, proofing, and even co-writing the very successful booklet, “A Century of Sunbonnets” in 1997. Before she passed away in 2012, mom sold me the business, along with all of her designs.

But it wasn't until a year later that I decided to reboot Betty Alderman Designs. Currently, all of mom's patterns (over 70 commercially produced designs), sketchbooks, and other designs, are being reviewed for possible re-imagining and reprinting. Some are now complete, with more on the horizon. I'm also in the process of designing brand new patterns for Betty Alderman's a real blast!

I feel very fortunate to have in my possession a majority of the quilts (close to 150 total, mostly wall hangings) that Betty made. Following her death, I documented and photographed every one of the quilts...a bittersweet journey that taught me a great deal about color choices, layout, embroidery, design, etc. It's wonderful to be involved with the design process and associate with the many wonderful, talented people in the quilting world.

This modern era, filled with an extensive variety of beautiful fabrics and helpful tools, is a thrilling time for Betty Alderman Designs to share our patterns with a new generation of quilters. Visit our site often to see what's new. We promise you'll always find patterns that inspire your creativity and enhance your quilting experience.
