Come quilt the SEASONS with me!

I’m thrilled to introduce my newest quilt, SEASONS, to you!

Designed and sewn by Kimberly Einmo. Machine quilted by Lisa Calle.

This cheery quilt has been in the making for almost two years! I spent a lot of time working on the design of this quilt and then actually sewing it; but I couldn’t share much of my progress with you except for occasional “sneak peeks.” To finally be able to unveil this quilt to you is something I’ve dreamed of for the longest time!

SEASONS will be featured as the 2021 series quilt in American Quilter Magazine, beginning with the January issue which arrives in mailboxes and newsstands around December 1st! If you are already a subscriber to American Quilter magazine, you’ll receive all five installments with each bi-monthly issue from January – September. If you aren’t yet a subscriber to American Quilter magazine, it’s easy and truly cost effective to subscribe! For just $25 a year, you’ll receive six issues jam-packed with tons of quilt patterns, feature articles and my regular column, Stray Threads. American Quilter magazine is also available to everyone internationally for just a bit more to cover shipping costs. You can sign up by simply CLICKING HERE.



I’m so incredibly proud of SEASONS. The engineering of the four season quadrants around the center sun/moon/stars block is pretty ingenious, mathematically so. Each quadrant is comprised of the same number and sizes of blocks and each quadrant has similar blocks including house blocks, wreath blocks, and flying geese units which add to the continuity and balance of the design.

There are over 45 block patterns in this quilt and these fun and festive motifs can be used on their own (think about making door panels of the quadrants for each season!) or you can create additional small, quilted projects with the patterns. Anyone with a little quilt-making experience can make this! I constructed the applique blocks by using fusible machine applique techniques but you can choose your favorite applique method to create the blocks. 



In addition to incorporating various fabrics from my stash, I used 30 colors from my own fabric line, Solid-ish by Timeless Treasures Fabrics, to make the blocks. You need to choose some of your own stash fabrics but if you’d like to include the Solid-ish colors I used, I have created a lovely fat quarter bundle for each of the four seasons plus an “essentials” pack. Each bundle contains six different fat quarters of Solid-ish and you can get them EXCLUSIVELY on my website by CLICKING HERE






Each bundle is just $24 but for a limited time, if you buy four bundles, you get the fifth bundle absolutely FREE! Go to: 

Buy 4 — get 1 FREE!

Let’s stay connected through the entire 2021 series and have fun in the process! I have created a new, FREE Facebook page for anyone interested in the SEASONS quilt. You can ask questions, post photos of your fabric choices, share your progress as you sew, or simply drop in and post each time your issue of American Quilter magazine arrives in your mailbox! To join this group, search Facebook for: SEASONS, American Quilter Magazine 2021 Series quilt or by CLICKING HERE. I also invite you to “LIKE” my Kimberly Einmo Designs Facebook page to be notified when I post short videos with tips and techniques about the blocks featured in each issue of the series. Bottom line? Let’s just have some FUN!

I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and I’m certain you’ll enjoy it, too. So, why not invite your friends to join you? If you plan to make this series quilt, simply leave a comment below and let me know you’re interested. (There’s no pressure and no formal commitment — really. I would just love to know if you like the quilt!) Then get your hands on the January 2021 issue of American Quilter magazine, start gathering your fabrics and get ready for quilting camaraderie while we quilt the SEASONS together.

I hope you’ll join me in this year-long trip celebrating the seasons and holidays of the year!

    • Meloney – I’m so thrilled you are going to join me! Thanks for joining the Facebook group, too! And it’s totally OK not to finish your other projects first. Throw caution to the wind and join me! 🙂

  8. So fun! Congratulations, Kimberly!

  9. Hello Kimberly
    I just thoroughly enjoyed your presentation on the Virtual Quilt Festival. You did an incredible program. You shared and cared. You had a great sense of humor and bubbly personality. You were a refreshing breeze in a sea of those who take themselves too seriously.
    I looked everywhere to contact you but there isn’t anything on your website etc with that information.
    Do you travel to teach? Do you speak at Quilt Guilds? I live in Santa Barbara County and I would love to have you come to our guilds. You can contact me at: moc.apcwolebrewnull@adnerB.

    • Hi Brenda — I have responded to you in an email. Thank you so much for your lovely comments about my presentation today!

  10. I LOVE this quilt!! Can’t wait to make it. Would LOVE to know the background fabric color for each season. Can I buy those from you?
    Thanks for doing this. It’s adorable!!!

    • Cathy — I’m THRILLED you’ll be joining me on this fun SEASONS quilt-making journey! As for the background fabric, I simply chose solid pastels for each quadrant. No specific brand. I used a light blue, light yellow, light green and lavender. And for the center sun/moon block, a royal blue. You can probably find them at your local quilt shop or at many online sources.

      • I bought all 5 of your bundles! I’m so excited to get them! And for the backgrounds, I nailed it except on the yellow/gold. Buying online is a little difficult sometimes getting the perfect color. But I’ll try again on the yellow/gold……

  11. Just found a issue and Seasons for fall is in it. How can I purchase the other patterns? Or is there a way to download them?
    Thank you for your help

    • Hi Jean!
      Contact American Quilters society. I would call their customer service number. You can get the back issues with ALL the printed pattern pieces. This quilt is a joy to make!
