Dick Du Puis

I had a wonderful time walking down memory lane with Dick Du Puis.  I want to encourage you to go to Dick’s episode page on aquilterslife.com, if you haven’t already, to check out the pictures and links I’ve found for him.  What does a successful clothing designer do when they retire?  Evidently, part of that is making quilts!  At 91, Dick is still busy making quilts, isn’t that great?

He told me about a book that was done about his life, but I couldn’t find it.  Thanks to Cristina Perez for finding the book about Dick Du Puis!!  Here’s the link:  Devotional Embers – Dick Du Puis

Here are some of his quilts:

This picture is of his girls in the garden

Dick’s designs are amazing!  Here’s the link.

Found this great article that was written about Dick on August 8, 2011
