Kim Schaefer began sewing at an early age and was quilting seriously by the late 1980s. Her early quilting career included designing and producing small quilts for craft shows and shops across the country. In 1986, Kim founded Little Quilt Company, a pattern company focused on designing a variety of small, fun-to-make projects. In addition to designing quilt patterns, Kim is a best-selling author for C&T Publishing. Kim also designs fabric for Andover/Makower and works with Leo Licensing, which licenses her designs for nonfabric products. Kim lives with her family in southeastern Wisconsin. For more information on Little Quilt Company, please visit www.littlequiltcompany.com, which offers Kim's entire collection of patterns, books, and fabrics. Little Quilt Company's Facebook page has posts about new patterns, books, and fabrics and an occasional peek at Kim's latest work.
April 12 What's a gal to do when all the beds (and most of the walls) have been covered in quilts, when every friend and relative has a quilt - but she still wants to keep stitching? Kim Schaeffer has published a book of 15 quilt designs in an unusual shape: long and skinny. We're talking 22x86in, 30x90in and the like. These quilts have been designed as decorative pieces for stairwells and doors and practical items for use as table runners, a throw on the back of a sofa, or a bed runner to keep your toes warm. They're fast and fun to make, allowing you the opportunity to experiment with colours and techniques, and, of course, they make fabulous gifts, without the need to invest the time and effort required of a full bed-size quilt. Kim's projects include simple patchwork and, in some cases, fun and funky applique. * Australian Homespun * March 12 Subtitled 15 bed runners, table toppers and wall hangings, this book is for all those who want to make smaller quilts - quicker to make and just as lovely as full-size quilts. Kim shows her great sense of design and colour for the contemporary home. As always with CT Publishing, great layout, great book design with easy to use instructions and super photos. It makes the quilt construction very easy to follow. Chunky Monkey is my favourite design, but I liked them all. * Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts *
