Story Quilt By MIMI DIETRICH
I couldn't wait to see how she approached story quilts and this week she sent me the finished image of her wonderful Baltimore story quilt complete with rouched breasts- loved the crab cake, the flamingo the beautiful flowers and touches of Baltimore...isn't this a delightful quilt and think about passing this along and who wouldn't want to be known for this in a hundred years? It is beautiful, whimsical and lovely all at the same time. Mimi inspires me each time I look at her books I own and this piece will always be my favorite...hope you enjoy it too!
