Kim Kight shares her love for vintage fabrics by reproducing historical prints or taking elements from their designs to create something new. Her favorite fabrics come from the mid-century period - the 1940s through '60s. She loves their quirky little designs that can be recreated in such a timeless way.
Kimberly Kight helped shape and influence the modern fabric and quilting scene in the mid 2000s with her very successful, now-shuttered blog True Up, but at heart she is a traditional quilter. From the time she started sewing she has collected vintage fabrics, scouring Ebay, thrift stores, and flea markets for the best finds. As one of the founding designers of Cottton+Steel, she took elements from these vintage fabrics and reworked them in fresh new ways for the modern sewer.
Welsummer is inspired by Scandinvian folk design and retro kitchen imagery. The collection is printed on unbleached cotton, giving it a depth and warmth, and the whimsical egg prints are dedicated to Kim's real-life flock of backyard chickens. (Welsummer is a chicken breed!)
