Mimi Shimp

Mimi is a teacher and the author of several books and patterns. The newest books “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and “Moonlit Flowers” were self-published by her company Quiltime. She was recently a contributing designer to the book “100 Best Full Size Quilt Blocks and Borders”, published by Publications International LLC, in the summer of 2005. After learning to quilt in 1981, Mimi taught classes from 1982 – 1986. She did not get serious about her quilting until after taking a “Teacher Training” seminar from Mary Ellen Hopkins in 1985. She then started her own quilting business in 1987 and managed Mary Ellen Hopkins’ quilting seminars from 1987 until 1991. In the spring of 1991 she introduced Triangle Paper™ to the quilting world. What began as a solution to many long sessions of drawing the half-square triangle grids has since expanded to 22 different sizes and package combinations, including half-square, quarter-square and several variety packages. Most recently Mimi developed a method for machine appliqué that gives the appearance of hand appliqué. Watch Mimi on Quilter’s Coffee as she shows you how to make her Pinwheels and Windmills quilt.
