A Quarter Century of Quilting
In 2000 when my oldest son turned 25, I realized I had been quilting for 25 years! For this lecture, I've gathered together my first quilt, my latest quilt, and many more in between. Reminisce with me as you see quilts that were pictured in Quilter's Newsletter 20 years ago. You will be amazed at the variety of styles, colors, and patterns that I have quilted in this time! The one theme that seems constant is applique! This lecture is a trunk show with real quilts - no slides- and a few fun surprises - Mimi's latest projects!


Pink Ribbon Quilts
Mimi's book, Pink Ribbon QuiltsPink Ribbon Quilts, contains 12 projects made with a pink ribbon theme for breast cancer awareness. During this lecture, Mimi will bring the quilts and talk about her experiences as a breast cancer survivor. Themes of awareness, hope, friendship, family, love, and care are stitched together in these inspiring quilts. $100 from each lecture will be donated to breast cancer research.


Happy Endings
Based on Mimi's first book, Happy EndingsHappy Endings, this lecture-demonstration explores many choices for finishing the edges of your quilts. Learn how to finish quilts without binding, how to use the quilt backing to finish the edges, how to make and apply binding, and how to create special effects with cording, ruffles, and prairie points.
