A fourth-generation educator (retired), Beckey Prior taught general music and singing in public and private schools for 32 years. She has worked in a stained glass studio in Plano, has been a Girl Scout leader, has taught karate (as a second-degree black belt) and is a certified Hatha yoga instructor. Recently resuming her quilt making after a 25-year hiatus, Beckey decided to design and make show quilts. Her first attempt won a blue ribbon at AQS QuiltWeek in Paducah in 2016 as well as 2016 Best of Show at the Northwest Quilting Expo in Portland, OR, and a spot in the Texas Quilt Museum exhibit, "Made in Texas" at the 2018 Houston International Quilt Festival. Now she spends her time experimenting with fabric, trying new techniques, and doing quilty things with friends.
