    Kim Diehl is one of my favorite quilt authors. She uses earth tones but in a brighter shade than some of the other earth tone authors. This book is no exception to her wonderful color and pattern selections.

    The book has 13 patterns using applique and piecing techniques to create quilts with circles, squares and triangles. There are quilts, table runners and even a fun kitty pillow for your cat friends.

    The patterns begin with a color photo and a paragraph about the quilt. Materials and cutting lists are clearly written and easy to follow. The written instructions have enough graphics to keep you going in the right direction. Templates, if needed, are included at full size.

    Then comes another picture of the quilt which has the finished quilt and block size and who designed, pieced and quilted it. There are two special colored boxes – one called Pin Point which give you tips on how to use your materials wisely. The other box – called Quilting the Quilt, gives you the description of how the quilt you are looking at was quilted. I LOVE it when the author does this. It doesn’t mean I have to follow what the author did but it certainly makes it easier for me to decide how to quilt it.

    The book’s last section is 17 pages on the basics followed by a two paragraph bio on Kim Diehl. This book is one that I plan to keep in my library.

    Highly recommended

    This latest of Kim Diehl's books is as good a source for charming quilt patterns as her previous ones. Her combination of applique and piecework is particularly attractive. I appreciate her clear instructions for the cutting, piecing and applique; I particularly value the ironing instructions since it makes the finished product polished.
