Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day seventy-five of that project.
Mimi Chagnon is a beautiful petite woman.
She made a name for herself as a couture designer and dressmaker in Paris when she was a young woman. She made a big splash designing for a pop star that she went to elementary school with. The celebrity wore it to some premier and BAM she was a hot property!
She was commissioned to make more pieces for her friend and then other stars started calling.
Mimi had a really busy decade, working tirelessly and making a fortune. She was smart and socked it all away. She had plans for a second career.
She had no desire to stay in the limelight and work so hard forever. She had developed a modest collection of clothing and sold it to a well-known manufacturer with the agreement to submit a limited line twice a year for 5 years.
This gave her a little time to figure out where she wanted to go and what she wanted to do. She came into town having heard it was cute and friendly. She stayed and shopped and talked to people.
Mimi discovered people in That Town sewed! They found her exotic and funny. They also loved beautiful fabrics, and wanted to learn more about fashion and construction.
She had found her home.
Then she found a crazy architect that made this amazing building possible!
