I'm a third generation quilter who was taught to quilt by a very patient Grandma and I'm a two-time Machine Quilting Teacher of the Year. I teach nationally and internationally, appear on quilting TV and radio programs, and have my own line of products and DVDs in addition to teaching a class right here on Craftsy!

Kimmy's Craftsy Classes

Machine Quilting with Templates

You can achieve the quilting precision generally seen only in computerized quilting. With just three basic quilting template shapes and Kimmy Brunner's instruction, you can create perfectly geometric quilting designs too complex to be believed and too easy to pass up. Learn Kimmy's unique and innovative template techniques, including turning blocks into borders, merging traditional block designs, and her signature KimMotion filler design. Use templates directly on your quilt top with a longarm for a creative twist on this fun process or use marking techniques to prepare your quilt tops for domestic machine stitching.

announcement Follow my blog (scroll down the page a bit and you'll find a link) to watch as I create the 2015 Houston Raffle Quilt! This quilt, which will be an original design created with batik fabrics, will be raffled off at the 2015 International Quilt Festival in Houston to support the educational arm of the International Quilt Association. It is a honor and a privilege to be asked to do this and I am completely thrilled and so nervous that I am chewing my nails down to the quick!
