Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard

Date March  2019

Kim talks to us about her quilting life, and how she learned to quilt.  She also runs an Apple orchard with her family: Lepacek's Orchard. She is known for Project Quilting, which is in its tenth year.  We also talk about quilt alongs.  She is known for her Dresden Neighborhood quilts, which she has done as a quilt-along.  (You know that one -- it's everywhere).  She also did a fairytale sew along (which we didn't get to talk about!).
