— member of TQHF Selection Committee
Honors are not new to Mimi. The International Association of Professional Quilters named Mimi their 2013 Teacher of the Year!
Mimi has seventeen books to her name. The one that has probably touched the hearts of thousands of quilters and non-quilters alike is Pink Ribbon Quilts: A Book Because of Breast Cancer. That Patchwork Place has been the proud publisher of all of Mimi's 17 books. Here are a few of her book covers from her website.
Come back next month to read an in-depth interview of Mimi Dietrich, how quilting changed her life as well as the lives of those she has taught and the resurgence of the popularity of Baltimore Applique quilts.
Meanwhile, be sure to follow Mimi on her Facebook page here.
Until next month!
