From The Archives

Kimberly Einmo is my favorite teacher.  I use her flying geese and jelly roll ruler in a lot of my quilts.  She also writes an article for the AQS magazine.  Someday, I intend to make all of the blocks in Kimberly’s book.  The blocks are different sizes and use her rulers to make them.  I wonder how many quilts I can make when I make all the blocks.  It would use up a lot of scraps.  This would probably be my next long term quilt.

kimberley 2This quilt was made in a class at the Vermont Quilt Festival.  Dave LaValley from the Bittersweet Fabric Shop provides Janome machine for the class.  It is much easier to sew in a class with a machine that you are familiar with.  There is a lot of twisting and turning of the blocks in this quilt.  A design wall was definitely needed to arrange it.

kimberly 1Kimberly designed this row of the month wall hanging for AQS magazine.  I didn’t use her colors and it is a much different quilt than hers.  It was necessary to have an accurate 1/4″ seam as the block sizes were different.   If the measurement was off, the rows would not be the same length.

I do have another wall hanging from a class with Kimberly.  It is in my stash of UFOs and will be finished someday.

Happy quilting
