Kim Schaefer began sewing at an early age and was quilting
seriously by the late 1980s. Her early quilting career included
designing and producing small quilts for craft shows and shops
across the country. In 1986, Kim founded Little Quilt Company, a
pattern company focused on designing a variety of small,
fun-to-make projects. In addition to designing quilt patterns, Kim
is a best-selling author for C&T Publishing. Kim also designs
fabric for Andover/Makower and works with Leo Licensing, which
licenses her designs for nonfabric products. Kim lives with her
family in southeastern Wisconsin, USA.
