Bettina Havig

Bettina Havig

Since learning to quilt in 1970, Bettina has immersed herself in the quilt world. She wears many hats–quilt appraiser, quilt show judge, quilt historian, quiltmaker, and consultant. She shares her love for quilting with others by teaching, lecturing, and writing. Teaching has given her a chance to travel to Germany, Scotland, and England, where her love of traditional English medallion-style quilts was born. In her capacity as a quilt historian, Bettina has been an active member of the American Quilt Study Group since 1980 and served on the advisory board of the International Quilt Study Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. She has also been a board member for the Museum of the American Quilter's Society in Paducah, Kentucky. Bettina's study of historical patchwork and appliqued blocks resulted in her book "Carrie Hall Blocks," which features piecing diagrams for sewing and pattern templates for creating 200 of these blocks. Published works include: "Amish Kinder Komforts."
