Welcome to the wonderful world of Kim Diehl--on a splendidly small scale! Kim's little quilts have three big benefits: they're scrap friendly, they're quick to finish . . . and they're as cute as can be. Now you can create a wonderful variety of pint-sized quilts in Kim's signature style.

Enjoy 18 projects from Kim's Simple Whatnots Club, previously available only in individual patterns. You'll learn streamlined techniques for petite patchwork, invisible machine applique, and cozy wool applique. Use completed projects as wall quilts and table toppers, or follow Kim's lead and display projects in other creative ways. As always, Kim shares her "Extra Snippet" sewing tips throughout so that YOU can become a better quilter.

In her book Simple Whatnots, Kim Diehl's quilts showcase reproduction fabrics in fun, creative, and colorful designs. Of course, my stash of reproduction fabrics is not as large as hers so I will use batiks and other fabrics to make quick gifts for my family and friends. Another reason why I like her projects: they are manageable to free motion quilt on my Bernina as my wrists can no longer handle larger ones.

I have many of Kim Diehl's books and am always rewarded with inspiring designs, great tips, and flawless instructions. Simple Whatnots - A Batch of Satisfyingly Scrappy Little Quilts is a terrific addition to my library and will actually be kept in my scraps drawer so I do not have to spend time figuring out on my own how to use them. I just have to choose one of her designs and have a project done in one day. Love it!

Kim Diehl

After falling in love with a sampler quilt pattern in the late 1990s, Kim impulsively purchased it, taught herself the steps to make it, and then realized she was smitten with quiltmaking. As her newfound passion blossomed into a full-time career, Kim began publishing her original designs, traveling nationally to teach her approachable quiltmaking methods, and ultimately designing fabrics . . . a dream come true for a girl who once wondered if she had what it took to make a single quilt!

Using modern time-saving techniques such as the easy invisible machine-applique method she's known for, enables Kim to be prolific in her quiltmaking, and there's always something new in the works. Her very favorite quilts feature scrappy color schemes sewn from a mix of richly hued prints, and her designs often blend traditionally inspired patchwork with applique designs.

In addition to authoring numerous books, including her "Simple" series with Martingale, Kim continues to design quilting fabric collections and Simple Whatnots Club projects in her signature scrap-basket style for Henry Glass & Co.

After retiring from an extensive travel and teaching schedule in 2015, Kim now spends her days at home doing what she loves most: designing quilts and fabrics, baking, stitching, gardening, and being a nana to her grandbabies.
