Stitch Along with Kim Diehl for Simple Whatnots III

SCAVENGER HUNT

Bonus Eight-Part Mystery Stitch Along

From the Simple Whatnots III book by Kim Diehl

Finished quilt size:  18-1/2" x 24-1/2"

  

Welcome to the Simple Whatnots III Mystery Stitch Along!

Please visit this page every Monday and Friday from June 6 through July 1 to see the eight project installments.

To help you easily navigate your mystery project, I’ll include a photo with each post to share details from my quilt. You can use my choices as a guide, or create your own unique look—the only goal is to have fun! Cutting instructions will be provided in each installment; be sure to save any unused fabrics and scraps from each installment for use in future weeks.

Buy the Simple Whatnots III book at your local quilt shop, at ShopMartingale.com, or online wherever books are sold (you'll need the book to follow the block-making instructions).

Then gather fabrics from your stash or visit your local quilt shop for some new fabrics.
