A native of Delaware, Mimi Ayars, Ph.D., calls herself a 'hardy Texas transplant.' She caught the spirit of quilting in the 1976 revival while living in the Chicago area, once belonging to five guilds concurrently. Her first quilt, Stars and Stripes, was selected for a show of bicentennial quilts at the Museum of the American Quilter's Society in 1991. Dr. Ayars taught sociology at nine universities in six states and retired in 1991 to pursue two hobbies: writing and quilting. Her articles on quiltmaking have been published in the 'National Quilting Association's Quilting Quarterly' (formerly 'Patchwork Patter'), and 'Quilt World.' Published works include: 'Jacobean Applique: Book I, Exotica' and 'Jacobean Applique: Book II, Romantica.'
