LCQ - Little Quilt Company - Gary/Kim

LCQ Kim Kim has been interested in art and design for as long as she can remember. As a child a pack of crayons and a pile of blank paper would entertain her for hours (and it still does!). In high school Kim studied in a specialized art program and concentrated on weaving and batik design. Her college years were spent at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, where she studied fine art with an emphasis on fibers. In 1983 Kim took her first quilting class and that was it...she was hooked! She began selling her quilts in 1989 while exhibiting in juried folk art shows in Pennsylvania and Chicago. While Kim enjoyed designing her own quilts, she soon grew tired of making 20 and 30 of the same design. She once got an order for 400 of the same quilt for QVC, it took forever to make them and they sold in less than 3 minutes! Kim hopes she never has to do that again!

In 1996, Little Country Quilts (Now Little Quilt Company) made its debut at the Quilt Market in Minneapolis, with 8 patterns for small wall quilts.

Today Kim continues to design patterns for Little Quilt Company. She also designs fabric for Andover Fabrics and works with Leo Licensing, which licenses her designs for non-fabric products. Kim has partnered with C&T Publishing, which have published several quilt pattern books featuring her contemporary folk art designs.

In the future Kim hopes to be able to continue doing what she is doing now, bringing you her whimsical contemporary folk art.
