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 and works with Leo Licensing which licenses her designs for non-fabric products.
Kim’s fabric collections with Andover Fabrics feature her whimsical contemporary folk art designs.
Kim Schaefer lives in Southeastern Wisconsin with her husband Gary and their dog Boone.
