Take a wild ride as Kim recounts the journey from her first quilt to the present. Through the years, many of her quilts have been inspired by challenges, which helped tease out her true quilting style – an “oddly beautiful” display of color, motion, and texture. You’ll see traditional quilts created quite untraditionally, sampler quilts with a twist, and a wide variety of art quilts.
