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.
Snap to Grid is an 80's inspired collection. The era of making a resurgence in art and design, and this is the first time it is being explored in a contemporary quilting collection. The entire collection is a mix of super fun and happy basics prints that have endless possibilities, with lots of black and white, electric blue, splashes of neon pink and neon yellow.
