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.
Imagine a sweet town where life moves at a slower pace, where inhabitants putter around their gardens and visit eat other on the porch, where friends play parlor games and dawdle on their way home. That's what Kimberly Kight envisioned with Tarry Town, not knowing when she designed it that it would be rather prophetic for out pace of life these days. Cute turtles, little cottages, teeny flowers, and more are all part of this idyllic fabric town.
