Meet the Author

With just the third quilt she'd ever made, self-taught quiltmaker Kim Diehl became the winner of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine's "Pieces of the Past" quilt challenge in 1998, turning her life down a whole new and unexpected path. Her work has been featured in numerous national and international quilting magazines. In addition to her best-selling "Simple" series of quilting books for Martingale, Kim has designed several fabric collections for Henry Glass & Co., enabling her to be involved in the full circle of quiltmaking from start to finish.

    Cover quilt

    The photo's of the quilts are GREAT! I began with making the cover quilt "Colonial Cocks Comb" The quanity of fabric needed for the project was incorrect. Too much for one color not enough for another. The block measurements were too small for the template shape offered. At best this block should have been cut at 18½" sq.

    Although, the quilt instructions appear clear and consise if they are not accurate they become a waste of time. If you want a nice "picture" book buy this one if you want to make a project in it DO Not or be prepared to redesign them for accuracy.

    Great Book

    Beautiful quilt patterns - great pictures. The instructions are well written and clear. The patterns for the applique are done well and easy to copy or scan into embroidery software.
