Superior Spotlight: Kim Lapacek

Congratulations to Kim, winner of Modern Quilts Unlimited’s Everything Old is New Again challenge.

Everything Old Is New Winner

Kim was inspired by a friend to use a panel as a normal piece of fabric. 

Kim said, “In every block I made I used pieces of the panel and mixed them with a variety of cotton couture solids.  You will also find flanges of fabrics incorporated into many of my blocks to add dimension.”

“Coming up with a method to blend all twelve blocks that didn't relate into a cohesive quilt top was quite a task. I loved how my Drunkard's Path block interpretation had come about, so I decided to use the same circle applique idea, but spread it out across the quilt.  Once the circles were on the top, I knew I had made the right decision. I also knew that I'd have to do a circle quilting design.  I used a walking foot to get the best results I could doing this type of quilting on my Bernina 750.”

Kim used Bottom Line in the bobbin, “I use Bottom Line whenever I can!  I love both Gray and Taupe colors, since it goes with everything.”

Thank you Kim for creating this beautiful quilt and letting us share it!  See more of Kim's creations on her Facebook page.
