The Quilt that launched, Kim’s career.
Kim entered this quilt in the Better Homes and Garden’s American Quilts and Patchwork magazines, contest. It won first prize and the pattern was published in the magazine. This was the fourth quilt that Kim had made. From there she submitted more quilt designs and patterns to be published in magazines. She also submitted patterns for a book, she has been publishing ever since. Kim said she fell into fabric designing when she submitted some ideas for fabric to Henry Glass Company. Basically Kim said, ” If you have an idea …. JUST GO FOR IT!”
At her editor’s behest, Kim made this quilt from pastel colors. She says she loves the pattern but she pastles are not her favorite colorway. What do you think?
This quilt was stunning especially with all those little berries. Better photographs can be seen in Kim’s books. You know how it is at a guild meeting. The ladies show off the quilts but their arms get tired holding them up.
Kim says she likes two color quilts because they are classics.
Kim says this is a simple all over quilt design that can be done on a domestic machine or long arm. She likes using it because she feel stippling is over done on many quilts. I think this pattern would look great on some of the baby quilts I make. I have been looking for new quilting patterns, I think I will give it a whirl
