Wildly Careening Into Quilts (lecture and trunk show)

Kim Lapacek

Thursday May 16th, 2019

Kim comes to us this evening from Poynette, Wisconsin. Her artistic talents are manifested in jewelry, painting, paper crafts and quilting. She is a mother, wife, artist, apple orchardist, retired civil engineer, and entrepreneur. She enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for creativity through teaching, lecturing and blogging.

Kim is a huge fan of online quilt alongs. In 2010 she started Project QUILTING, and since then hundreds of quilts have been created and thousands of dollars worth of prizes have been awarded.

Take a wild ride as Kim recounts the journey from her first quilt to the present. Through the years, many of Kim’s quilts have been inspired by challenges, which helped tease out her true quilting style – an “oddly beautiful” display of color, motion, and texture. You’ll see traditional quilts created quite un-traditionally, sampler quilts with a twist, and a wide variety of art quilts.


Friday May 17, 2018 – “Dresden Neighborhood”

Pull out your fun scraps and turn them into a unique Dresden Neighborhood! We’ll put a whimsical ‘twist’ on the traditional Dresden Plate, cutting, piecing, applique and stitching to make an adorable wall hanging! Once you learn Kim’s techniques, you’ll never look at a traditional block the same way.

Pattern is included.

  • Cell phones should be silenced during class. If you need to make or take a call, please exit the classroom.
