An avid quilter, Kimberly began Fat Quarter Shop as a side business in 2003 while still working in a corporate position, cutting, packing and shipping right out of her house during evenings and weekends. From the very beginning she was committed to delivering top-notch service for every single order and customer, and though the company has grown that commitment to service and customer service has never wavered.
Attention to detail and caring deeply about the project at hand – whether it’s a small block or a large quilt – is what makes Kimberly such a wonderful quilter. A self-described type A, Kimberly is a big fan of careful cutting and stitching and uses a LOT of starch when making her blocks. She also loves thread, buttons, and Chick-fil-A. 🙂
The Inspiration for Kimberly’s Sew Splendid Block
Kimberly’s block is called Family Stars. She drew inspiration from her love for her four children. Kimberly is represented by the red star in the center, and the four stars in the corners – the anchors of her world – are each of her children. The pink star represents her daughter, Emma, and the three blue stars represent sons William, Peyton, and Christopher.
