Lil (a playful homage to Kim’s previous collection, Smol) is Kim’s long waited calico inspired collection. If you ask any of the other designers, she’s been talking about making this collection for years. Check out the big apple prints and Kim’s semi cheater print she calls “sunpatch”, as well as a ton of dainty small florals that we just can’t get enough of!
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 Cotton+Steel, she took elements from these vintage fabrics and reworked them in fresh new ways for the modern sewer.
