Mickey Depre was introduced to the world of Fiber Arts by her own personal "grand masters" at the age of four. Grandmothers, great aunts, aunts and her mother filled her days with cloth, needles, yarn and such. In 1997 she found quilting on her own. She made a name for herself as an art quilter with a flair for the whimsical but always making traditional quilts for her husband Paul Sr. and children, Paul Jr. & Emily, to enjoy and keep warm under. English Paper Piecing has become a slight obsession and has led to the publication of her book Pieced Hexies. Now it is her goal to be known for her spin on traditional quilting via English Paper Piecing and beyond. And now in what she calls "a full circle in her quilting life" her latest book, Half Scrap Quilts is full of patterns for traditionally pieced bed quilts that show off her half-scrap choice of palette.
