Trunk Show by Bette Rogers

Bette Rogers is a quilt artist from Honeoye Falls who has been attracted to fiber since she was a small child learning to knit, crochet and embroider. She went on to study textiles in college and started to make functional quilts while living in Japan. Bette was also studying ikebana (the art of Japanese flower arranging) at that same time and decided to combine her interests by making ikebana quilts.
