SueDee's is proud to present a show of just a small portion of the quilts Betty Whitman has produced over the years. She began quilting on her mother's quilts at the tender age of 5, began creating her own quilts around 1970, has been a member of small quilt groups since the early 1980's and was one of the earliest members of the Pajaro Valley Quilt Association.
