    Wildly Careening into Quilts: What I Learned By Not Knowing What I Didn’t Know

    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.


    1. Kim's journey as a quilter – including some of her very first quilts

    2. how challenges have shaped the quilter she's becoming

    3. Kim's addiction to quilt alongs and block-of-the-month programs

    You may know her Dresden Neighborhoods pattern:


    Kim Lapacek is a 30+ year old mother, wife, artist, apple orchardist, retired civil engineer, and entrepreneur.

    Kim is currently in a major quilting phase of her creative endeavors. In 2010, she came up with the concept for Project QUILTING and since starting the challenges, thousands of quilts have been created and hundreds of dollars worth of prizes have been given away.

    Kim is a HUGE fan of quilt alongs. It’s really https://www.facebook.com/PersimonDreams/helped Kim hone her piecing skills and try things she never thought she would try before. Also – they’ve been great for helping Kim use p her scrap stash! Whatever level of quilter you are, don’t rule out a quilt along just because you don’t need ‘another’ sampler quilt – there is so much to learn out there – you’ll surprise even yourself!
