The BEST book on dyeing I've seen, and Kim lovingly wrapped it in one of her own creations! What a wonderful surprise, such a thoughtful person! A million thanks are not enough!!
Hand-dyed quilts for looking and loving
Kim E-M Quilts are made to be used and loved but also look great hung on a wall. Inspired by color theory, mixing, and gradations, I hand dye all of my own fabric. The method I use is scientific, based on a ratio of weight of dye to weight of fabric to produce accurate, reproducible colors with minimal dye waste. I use only the highest quality quilter’s cotton or Kona cotton for the tops, backs, and binding, cotton quilting thread, and cotton batting that is free of chemicals, glues and resins.
Each quilt is carefully and lovingly made one at a time. Custom orders are welcome!
Owner, Maker, Designer
I grew up in Iowa, an only child to parents who are hardworking, creative, and love the outdoors. My dad taught me to sew in 5th grade when we made a quilt out of old shirts. I had no idea then that I would later fall madly in love with quilting.

Colors can look vastly different from one computer to the next. I will do my best to photograph the quilts and describe the colors as accurately as possible. However, If your quilt is not at all what you expected please let me know.
Additional policies and FAQs
I use the highest quality quilter's cotton for my quilt tops, backs, and binding. The batting is Warm & Natural needled cotton, made with no chemicals, glues, or resins.
To dye the fabric I use a very precise method called "Percentage Dyeing" that allows for accurate color and minimal dye waste.
I welcome custom orders! If you see a quilt here you love, but would love more in a different size let me know. Most of my quilts can be made in any bed size.
