Kim Diehl: Simple Appeal Review and Giveaway!


[This giveaway has ended.]

Kim Diehl is having a super busy year. Her beautiful new book Simple Appeal is available today and it is about her love for using beautiful color combinations in patchwork and appliqué scrappy quilts for everyday use. Scroll down to the bottom to find out how to enter to win a copy of Simple Appeal and a bundle of Kim's fabric.





The projects are designed with classic pieced blocks and adorned by Kim's signature floral appliqué designs. The beauty of her designs is how easy it is for any quilter to stitch one for herself! There is always a warmth and charm in all of Kim's designs. The projects in Simple Appeal are no different and are perfect to use in decorating your home. 





Martingale & Co. has done a fabulous job with the photography and the design of the book. The instructions are clear and there are plenty of great diagrams that accompany the written directions. Make sure that you head over to the Martingale & Co. website to order your copy of Simple Appeal. 

On the fabric front, Kim has been designing several new fabric collections for Henry Glass this year. The first line to debut will be Vintage Farmhouse in June. The fresh and pretty palette will be a great foundation for any of the quilts in Simple Appeal.



Henry Glass and Kim are excited to introduce you her new Simple Whatnots Club this year. All the details are on the Henry Glass website here.


Would you like to win a digital copy of Simple Appeal and a bundle of Kim's fabric? Tell us where you like to decorate your quilts with. Do you like to make small table toppers or perhaps you like to make large quilts for your beds? Let us know by midnight Sunday, April 13 and we'll select one lucky winner.

Lorene said...

After a 25 years, I just now have the time to quilt again. I am making a hand-quilted table runner, then I'll see what inspires me next. Probably a 'spring' wall-hanging. I am excited for the opportunity to win a book and fabric. Thank you!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I constantly change my wall decor of mini's that I've gotten thru exchanges. Just a throw on the couch and a couple of pillows - they change when the walls change.

Barb said...

I make all size quilts but especially like Kim's designs and her play with color!

Danette Roundy said...

I usually hang my quilts to show them. Each of my children has a different quilt on their bed and several decorating there room! They have special quilts that they want to keep, so they are put away! It's fun to see a quilt I've made on someone else's bed or wall when I go visit!

Hollerbear said...

Everywhere! From beds to walls, back of the couch to table runners, quilts belong all over the house.

Sandy George said...

My favorite place to decorate with quilts is right in my entryway. I have a wall quilt hanger and a table. I hang small quilts and put objects on the table for all seasons and reasons. I hope it is a warm welcome to my home.

Oh wow I have quilts in every room in my home, yes even the bathroom! Wall quilts, table runners, and every size from lap to king sized quilts on every bed!

Table toppers, wall quilts, and throws over my comfy chair are my favorite places for quilts in my house. All the rest seem to end up on other people's beds.

Nita said...

So far I have only made bed and lap quilts. I am planning on trying a mini quilt for a wall hanging, though, as I have a spot in my kitchen that is perfect for one.

Kay said...

I make all sizes of quilts, but have been making a lot of smaller ones lately using charm packs, so that I can buy some of the new fabrics. I decorate with wall hangings in just about every room, on the wall, over chairs, on tables.

Barb said...

I really do enjoy making small projects like table toppers, they keep my need for completed projects under control. One just can't hurry those large quilts :)

Karen said...

I have only been quilting about a year and have made mostly bed quilts, but I have made a few table toppers as well, and have my first wall quilt in the making.

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

I make all sizes of quilts but my favorite are miniatures and wall quilts. I hang them in every room of my house often along side of the paintings I own. I find they give the room a warm cozy feel.

Diane L. said...

I usually make bed quilts and usually use reproduction fabrics.

sillyewe said...

Everything! Walls, beds, tables. I would like to also make some small quilts for framing. I am dying to make some of Kim's quilts. I have always admired her designs. Thank you for the opportunity and the great review!

ytsmom said...

I like a combination of small and large. Small things get finished a lot faster than large!!

c said...

I make lap to bed quilts, mainly for charity. This is a beautiful set of fabrics, prize winning all their own. Thank you for the chance

aka kingcooper0001@aol.com

Jacqueline Gould said...

I think quilts belong on beds or on a quilt rack for display. I love the look of them on tables but am in fear of someone spilling food or candle wax on them so I resist the urge to make table quilts. I do like runners, though, because you can take them off before people make a mess on them. Too much work goes into a quilt to have them stained.

OhioLori said...

Make quilts for beds, throws & wallhangings...just startin' with Table Toppers now too! Love quilty things everywhere round the house! :)

Barbara said...

I mostly make lap size quilts because they are not overwhelming projects and I love nothing better than wrapping up in one when watching TV or doing hand sewing. They are the perfect size to drape across a chair or fold up on a foot stool to decorate with. I love the rich colors of the Kim Diehl fabric lines to use in my projects. Thank you for a chance to win.

Pam said...

I enjoy making quilts for folks. Usually they are lap quilts so people can just snuggle down and relax or take a nap.

QuiltsnBooks said...

I absolutely love all of Kim's quilts, patterns and fabrics. I am drawn more to the bigger quilts because they can be used in so many places.

Janelle Bucher said...

I absolutely love Kim Diehl's books. I own one (so far) and am anxious to make everything from her books. I also like to make table toppers, wall hangings, throws, and bed-sized quilts. Have been wanting to purchase this book; hopefully I can win it instead.

PatsPassion said...

I make all different sizes from table runners to quilts for beds.

Jodi Connors (Mountain Gurl Quilts) said...

First of all let me say, I love Kim's patterns, they are perfect for what I like to decorate with. I am still fairly new to quilting, but have made, several quilted pillows, and a few lap-sized quilts, and also a few table runners, but my favorite size to make is the lap-sized quilts, because you can really let the pattern shine! Thanks for the fabulous giveaway!

Jodi

JWhite said...

I make all sizes of quilts... It just depends on who I'm making them for or if it's just for a fun splash of color on a 12" frame in my entry. I love Kim's quilt books because she shows multiple sizes and uses!

Robin Woods said...

I make lots of different sizes, but my favorites are probably large lap quilts. I keep them folded and stacked in a book case (seasonally switching them out) and I love the pop of color and pattern they bring to the room. I've requested a quilt ladder from the hubby - but I'm still waiting....

Strlady said...

I love Kim's designs and have enjoyed all her fabric lines. This one appears to be just as delicious.
I love large quilts to put on the beds but also large lap quilts to drape over the sofa.

I love table runners/toppers because they can be made quickly, change a room quickly and try out new ideas. I also make lap quilts to throw over the couch and cuddle under when I am cold. I am quilting some of the large bed quilts I have made - to cross off those UFOs. I like Kim's use of warm welcoming colors & designs. Cindy at cwienstroer@amuniversal.com

I love making lap quilts. It's a manageable size for me, a new quilter, and very functional. Draping them over sofas, chairs, tables and beds creates such a cozy atmosphere in a room.

I love to create WALL ART QUILTS. I made 2 African ones that turned out fabulous. I am working on an ethnic Hungarian one that uses their embroidery designs but in fabrics as an art quilt.
I love your work Kim, bright, sassy, glorious eye-candy! Thank you for the opportunity!

tesuque said...

I make quilted items more for function than decor.
But when a dreary winter is dragging on, I might bring out a bright or pretty pastel quilt or table topper to chase away the gloom.

Oh, WOW! Those quilts are fabulous. Love the wonderful colors. I have only been quilting for 3 years and, so far, have only made bed quilts for my four daughters and their families. More recently I've made several lap quilts. I want to make some smaller ones for table toppers and for the backs of a couple of chairs.

Denise B said...

My walls are an ever-changing gallery of small quilts, but they show up on beds, tables and the sofa, too!

Kaboodle said...

Where wouldn't I like to use them? They are all so gorgeous, they go anywhere, but to be reasonable I would say a small table topper size has the best chance of getting finished!

Kathy Gruwell said...

I've considered decorating using UFO's, but everyone would expect that ;>. I decorate the walls of my office with wall hangings and smaller quilts.

Part of the joy of quilting is sharing so most of my quilts are decorating other people's homes.

In my home I have collections of fabric, books, notions, etc. Perhaps there is a decoration scheme that would work with UFO's.

quilter said...

I make bed quilts, lap quilts, table runners, wallhangings...all of them. Love the feel and look of fabric and a quilted item in a room. It is comforting. Looking forward to the new book and the fabric is wonderful!

If I had more quilts I would use them in more spaces. Most of my projects are small for tables and walls while my grandma's quilts hang on a quilt rack in my bedroom. Love Kim's country feel. Makes you want to cozy up wrapped in one of them.

I will be looking out for a copy of this. So would love to win this and the lovely `Vintage Farmhouse fabric pack.

Oh, how I would love to pet these fabrics...And Kim's quilt style is perfect for me. What fun I will have reducing these patterns down to doll quilt size. Love making doll quilts.

I have quilts all over my house, on beds, hanging on the walls, I have four quilt racks, and three wall racks, they are on the rungs of a ladder, draped over chairs, and rolled up on shelves. I purchased the curtain rods with the clips so I can hang them in the windows as well! Thanks for the giveaway!

I am no way near the quilter that Kim is, but I do love to make table runners and wall hangings to use around my home. They are easy to do and can change with the seasons. Thanks for the giveaway!

I cover my walls with wallhangings, my tables with table runners and toppers, and my beds with quilts. There cannot be too many quilted items in my home! :)

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I'm new to quilting, and haven't finished anything that turned out very well, so I can't say my quilts are "decorating" anywhere. But as I improve I hope to fill the house with beautiful projects. Thanks for the great giveaway.

I love to make quilted wall hangings and have made several using Kim's patterns.

Elizabeth Monahan said...

I've been making wallhangings because we have an open plan house with a long balcony rail. With a range of hangings I can keep changing with the seasons or my mood.

Darlene B said...

I used to prefer to make larger quilts, but I am finding that I really enjoy making a smaller project (for instant gratification) and love the little touches of color that can be spread throughout my home.

I love Kim's ideas, her patterns, books, fabrics, etc. I use them where ever I need some warmth and color. I even make her patterns up and use the quilts for raffles to help different organizations raise money.
