After falling in love with a sampler quilt pattern in the late 1990s, Kim impulsively purchased it, taught herself the steps to make it, and then realized she was smitten with quiltmaking. As her newfound passion blossomed into a full-time career, Kim began publishing her original designs, traveling nationally to teach her approachable quiltmaking methods, and ultimately designing fabrics . . . a dream come true for a girl who once wondered if she had what it took to make a single quilt!
Using modern time-saving techniques such as the easy invisible machine-applique method she's known for, enables Kim to be prolific in her quiltmaking, and there's always something new in the works. Her very favorite quilts feature scrappy color schemes sewn from a mix of richly hued prints, and her designs often blend traditionally inspired patchwork with applique designs.
In addition to authoring numerous books, including her "Simple" series with Martingale, Kim continues to design quilting fabric collections and Simple Whatnots Club projects in her signature scrap-basket style for Henry Glass & Co.
After retiring from an extensive travel and teaching schedule in 2015, Kim now spends her days at home doing what she loves most: designing quilts and fabrics, baking, stitching, gardening, and being a nana to her grandbabies.
