Best quilting buds, back again: new from Kim and Jo (+ fabric giveaway!)

Gather your favorite fabrics—and your favorite quilting friends—because Kim Diehl and Jo Morton are back with Simple Friendships II!

Simple Friendships II

Kim and Jo have a fun idea for you: start with patchwork, add a few friends, and stitch it all together with gorgeous new patterns from their latest book. Their all-new, showstopping quilts reflect each designer’s signature style.

From Simple Friendships II

Every chapter showcases a classic quilt block; Kim and Jo each take the block and transform it into a spectacular quilt. Discover fresh spins on Churn Dash, Ohio Star, Flock of Geese, and more. Instructions make it easy to create blocks on your own or as part of a group—and the sampler quilts included are simply stunning!

We asked Kim and Jo some pressing questions about their latest book, and what other sewing adventures they’ve been on lately—read below for their answers!


Stitch This!: Your first book, Simple Friendships, was an instant best seller. What inspired you to team up again for Simple Friendships II

Kim DiehlKim: Jo and I live in different parts of the country and we’re used to working on our own during other book projects—we just bop along by ourselves and see where the wind blows us. Collaborating on our first Simple Friendships book was a real change of pace! When we began that book, we had a rare opportunity to get together face-to-face and brainstorm while sipping Starbucks (my kind of meeting!). It was really fun to stay connected throughout the process, compare notes and projects, and share the love. So of course I wanted to do it all again for Simple Friendships II! With a basic format already in place from our first book, we had an easy time falling into a creative rhythm for this new book (even without being able to suck down coffee together), and I feel that it’s even better than the first!

Jo MortonJo: Even though we don’t live close to each other, we keep in touch via the internet. We each do our own take on a block (not confined by block size). People seemed to enjoy the first book, so a second book was an exciting idea for both of us!

ST!: What’s your designing process like—do you draft a pattern first or gather fabrics first? Do you draw ideas on paper or use a computer?

Kim: I tried being spontaneous in the design of a project ONCE, and found myself lying awake each night wondering what my next “spontaneous” step would be. I couldn’t handle it! I have to admit that I’m totally into planning. I begin by exploring block and layout ideas using graph paper. When I have a basic blueprint, I use a computer program to plug in prints and colors so I have a jumping-off point for when I begin making the quilt. That said, once I begin stitching I never hesitate to trust my instincts and stray from the plan if I feel changes are needed.

Jo: I don’t use a computer to design quilts, I never have. I’m happy working the way I work. Old habits and all that jazz.

ST!: What’s inspiring your work right now?

Kim: Last year was my year of embracing simplicity, so I’m currently in the process of finishing a few in-progress projects inspired by that theme. I recently realized, though, that I’ve been so goal and deadline oriented that I somehow let evening handwork fall off my radar screen. I’m in the process of remedying this heinous oversight, and I’m currently working up blocks and appliqué designs for a long-term project that will let me enjoy hand stitching again.

Jo: Antique quilts, mid-to-late nineteenth century, have always inspired my work. My husband and I live in a 90-year-old bungalow, and we live with antique furniture (a 20-year collection process purchased during many road trips). Some pieces were acquired in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and we also own some great reproduction furniture from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia, and New England. These pieces suit my soul, and I need to make quilts that are also good for my soul. I’ve always said that I make quilts for me, and share them with you.

Courthouse Steps quilts

ST! What’s on your sewing table right now?

Kim: Lots of simple patchwork blocks and lots of wool-on-cotton appliqué designs!

Jo: Fabric! I’m currently finishing a couple of quilts made mostly with my Hickory Road line with Moda Fabrics, which begins shipping to quilt shops this month. I have a couple of block exchanges coming up and I need to get my blocks sewn.

Kim Diehl's sewing space
A peek at Kim’s sewing space: the wool appliqué is part of a just-for-fun project; the patchwork blocks are for an upcoming book.

ST! What’s your #1 tip for beginning quilters?

Kim: Strive for accurate seam allowances! Each time I begin a new project I take a quick moment to double-check my seam-allowance width. I cut three rectangles, 1½" x 3½", and stitch them together along the long edges. After pressing the seams away from the center rectangle, the patchwork should measure 1″ in width. If the size of my center rectangle is off, I make an adjustment when feeding my future pieces through the sewing machine. Once I’ve achieved accuracy, I know I’ll have smooth sailing.

Jo: Learn the basics (take a beginner class recommended by someone you admire). Acquire and work toward learning good skills. Math is involved in skills. I learned how to draft patterns from a book by Jinny Beyer in the early 1980s. Once you understand the math and can sew a consistent seam allowance, you’ll be able to make most any quilt.

Quirky Questions for Kim and Jo

 What’s your secret talent? 

Kim: I can’t carry a tune in a bucket when singing. I can’t bake a cake that doesn’t cave in at the middle to save my life. But I’m a fantastic disco dancer.

Jo: Answering questions . . . from my students.

 What movie have you seen again and again?

Kim: I have a handful of favorite movies that I never get tired of: A League of Their Own, Gone with the Wind, Forrest Gump, and Con Air, to name a few. (I have eclectic tastes!)

Jo: Miracle on 34th Street with Maureen O’Hara, Edmund Gwenn, and Natalie Wood—the black-and-white version, of course. I also love The Devil Wears Prada and Pretty Woman. Most evenings TV isn’t very good, so I watch/listen to Home Improvement and Last Man Standing or old reruns of Murder, She Wrote.

 If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?

Kim: Ellen DeGeneres for sure. She would make everything I do, including my goof-ups, sound down to earth and funny.

Jo: The American historian and novelist, Shelby Foote.

    —A bartus on January 9, 2019
  • None of my quilty friends live close enough to me to be able to spend the time together stitching that I would like to do. That’s what is great about the internet. I belong to several groups that I stitch along with, besides being in a few clubs in my local quilt shop. I love to swap fabrics and blocks so I can have a great scrappy quilt in the end and also have fabrics from friends included in my quilts.

    —Karen Schultz on January 9, 2019
  • My sister and I try to get together at least once a month for a minisewcation. We also have several quilt sisters that we sew with as often as we can. We do at least two quilt retreats each year with our "Empty Bobbins & Loose Threads" group of 10 of us. Very active in a special Nebraska and Iowa Quilt Friends group, as well. I think we have over 300 of us. We do a retreat each year (sadly due to space constraints not all can attend). We have done many block exchanges which is an awesome way to make scrappy quilts utilizing everyone’s fabrics. Our current exchange is 4″ pinwheel blocks made with 1930’s reproduction fabric. It is sew much fun to see how everyone sets their blocks in quilts.

    —Lori on January 9, 2019
  • I have regular meet ups with my quilting buds!!!

  • I don’t have any local quilting friends, but do have a fired 2 states away that I met in an online quilter group at the beginning times of internet, a usenet group when everything was DOS based, all text, no windows/graphical interface! LOL! We try to get together for a ‘retreat’ somewhere once a year, quilt show or quilt cruise, or rent a place somewhere for a week. In between we try to at least get together for a weekend now and again. It is very renewing!

I’ve noticed that, although we budget ourselves all of Monday afternoon for sewing, we spend at least the first 30 minutes chatting. What a warm and wonderful bond – I love these ladies!

    —Margaret on January 9, 2019
  • As often as I can, sometimes with my BFF (best fabric friend), mostly alone tho!

There are about six of us and we have several days each year where we meet up and make the same project. Could be bags, quilts, home dec projects. During the rest of the year we go to guild meetings and work independently but group text each other sharing progress pics and so many laughs.
    I’d love to win. Great book and dream fabrics

  • Since April 2018 I’ve been sewing every two weeks with a group of new friends at our LQS while my husband and I await our new house construction. These friends have been sanity savers while I live in a tiny apartment. As soon as I can move into my new sewing space, I want to have even more sewing days with them. Also, I can hardly wait for my LQS to start the “Simple Whatnots #8” in a couple of weeks!!

    —Judyk on January 9, 2019
  • I have been blessed with the most amazing ladies in my life through quilting. We try to gather once a month (some of us are still working, some of us are retired but live a distance from each other, and then life can get in the way as well) but knowing that we’re out there…..it’s enough. We share what and when we can and enjoy the wonders of fabric and quilting. Quilting is so much more than just the fabric.

    —Cathy on January 9, 2019
  • I belong to two small quilt groups and a group at church that meets twice a month. All are very inspiring. This book is a must have and the fabrics are amazing!

  • This is such a beautiful collection of quilts! I love the work of both of these designers and it is so fabulous to see them working together.
    I am most often sewing by myself though I have been blessed to attend a couple of retreats with wonderful quilters. I listen to recordings and have my 2 dogs and 2 cats to keep me company. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

    —Joyce Comfort on January 9, 2019
  • "I have regular meetups with my quilting buds" but I have to say there are some things that I need to do by myself. I think it is a balance between quilting with friends or alone.

    —Vicky on January 9, 2019
  • I am part of a group of friends that gets together weekly to sew. We have been doing this for more than 20 years. In the past we would do bi-annual weekend retreats also. Now once a month we gather at a friend’s home for a Friday/Saturday sleep in our own beds retreat. A very special group of friends for sure, and I am blessed to be part of it

    —kim on January 9, 2019
  • As often as I can, and today is one of those days!

    Chris on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt w/good friends once a month tho I’d enjoy it more often. However, I am able to get more done alone at home just bc everything I need is within reach. Sometimes it is hard to remember to take everything I need to a group sew in. However, friends do share! I LOVE Kim & Jo’s patterns & their fabrics!

    —Angeliasue on January 9, 2019
  • My back donor neighbor and I quilt and share tips and techniques with each other, hopefully before disaster strikes. We like to say we rip and sew together.

    —Andrea on January 9, 2019

  • I usually quilt by myself, but consult with several friends during the process.

    —Vickie on January 9, 2019
  • Used to have a foursome that met/sewed once a month but as aging occurs in life, one member moved away and two of us had ill husbands. Life has begun to settle done and it is hoped we can resurrect a little group once again. Sewing alone is great also but friends are such an inspiration. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    —Ellie Lively on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt at least once a week with my friend who I taught to quilt when she retired …She is motivated to make each of her 15 grand children a queen size quilt …so relaxing

    —Karen Blystone Gee on January 9, 2019
  • I am part of a church group that meets every week where we work on different types of quilts – nothing fancy but still have a good time. Twice a year I go on 4+ day retreats with a group of absolutely marvelous friends. I have another friend where we "quilt" by email. We share our projects, ideas and good conversation. The rest of the time I quilt on my own. I sometimes like just nice quiet time with my machines. Would absolutely love to be the lucky winner of this gift.

    —Kathy H on January 9, 2019

    —Susie Brown on January 9, 2019

    —Kerry Linklater on January 9, 2019

    —Darlene B on January 9, 2019
  • I started quilting after my back injury and one of the first projects I attempted was one of Kim’s old Simple Whatnot’s. She is my inspiration! I generally quilt alone due to my disability, but thanks to Instagram, Martingale and other internet blogs I never feel totally alone. Quilting has become my therapy and winning this wonderful giveaway would get top billing on my gratitude list for a pleasurable way to fill the days of winter! Thank you for the opportunity and the inspiration!

We have also been able to make projects for our community outreach team ie a t-shirt quilt for a mom who lost her son, a photo memory quilt for a cancer patient, shopping bags for local refugee groups and chair bags for some teachers! We encourage each other during the rest of the month and always share positive feedback!

    —Denise on January 9, 2019
  • I am in 4 different quilt groups, so I can spend a lot of time sewing with friends. We have made several of Kim’s and Jo’s patterns and we are always excited when a new pattern arrives. Many of the quilts we make are for care centers or people who need and extra "caring" friend. We learn from each other and have made many long lasting friends.

    —Cheryl Nesbit on January 9, 2019

    —DanyseF on January 9, 2019
  • I have a friend that I have been getting together to quilt with for over 20 years. She has moved to a different town, but we still try to get together 3 or 4 times a year to quilt. Even when we can’t be together, we talk on the phone to tell each other what we have been working on and to inspire each other.

    —Leslie B. on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt with the "second monthly stitchers" monthly. We have been doing this for over 10 years. We sew on a variety of projects from hand sewing to quilts for kids (which we all do on occasion)–with leftover scraps to kits that one of the members put together when we have finished what we brought that Monday. We also go to the local guild. We have no set group (although about 8 of us are a constant) and others are welcome. I have learned so much from these ladies. We also go out to lunch the last Thursday of the month to a different restaurant that we pick at random at the second monday stitchers. I have enjoyed your emails over the years and have many of your books and e-books. Thank you for your information and tips.

    —shannon miller on January 9, 2019

    —Dottie MACOMBER on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt with friends only when I’m taking a quilting class. Unfortunately none of my close friends quilt. I keep trying to get them interested but hasn’t worked so far.

    Paula Abay on January 9, 2019

    —Lill on January 9, 2019

    Alexandra on January 9, 2019
  • I am fortunate to have a group of six quilters who meet every month, rotating through each other’s homes. We usually do hand stitching, but we always share ideas, encouragement, new gadgets, books and lots of fun.
    Twice a year my quilter friend from another city, comes to my home for a four day ‘retreat’, full of non-stop sewing and endless chatter.
    In between, I retreat to my sewing room almost every day, for some stitching, organizing and dreaming.
    How blesses I am!
    Liz

    Liz on January 9, 2019

We each bring food and just stay in and eat, sleep and sew! PLUS, I live two miles from an amazing quilt shop…Tennessee Quilts! And they always have a wide variety of opportunities to sew! Can’t wait to start Kim and Jo’s new book!!

  • My dear quilting sister lives less than 1/2 mile from my house and we belong to the same quilting group. Although we don’t sew together as much as we would like as I am still working, we get together and "brain storm" choosing patterns to use up our voluminous stashes! We have periodic sister quilting retreats at our respective houses and cut and stitch and laugh and eat – it’s just the best!

    —Kathleen Gaffney on January 9, 2019
  • My answer would be: all 3! I quilt with friends whenever I can, but I also have regular (guild) meetings when we stitch together and a couple retreats I love. Yet, I also spend a lot of time sewing alone, and I like that too. I just love to quilt in whatever shape it takes.

    —Pam VanKleek on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt alone, but have just gifted my granddaughter with her first Bernina!I wish I had a small group to quilt with. I do belong to a guild, but getting time since I work makes it very difficult. I am so envious of those who have a small quilting group!

    —Judi on January 9, 2019
  • I sew a little every day. I get up early to sew before I go to work. I helps wake me up and puts me in a better mood. I have friends that quilt so we get together when we can. I keep an extra machine so they don’t have to carry one with them. I teach young people to sew because if we don’t, it will die out. They like to sew with me in case they need help.

    I could so be friends with Jo and Kim because we have the same taste in quilts. I love those fabrics so I would love to win.

    —kay on January 9, 2019
  • I have 2 different groups that I stitch with each month. One is a handwork group. I enjoy both of these groups. I must admit that I do enjoy sewing all by myself and I find I am much more productive. Wonderful giveaway.

    —Carol G on January 9, 2019
  • I am so lucky to have found friends with the same addiction to quilting. There are 5 – 7 of us that get together as often as we can for a couple of days retreat. The biggest problem now is husbands retiring and messing up the schedules of the wives.

    —Diane on January 9, 2019
  • I am member of three different groups, all with different aims, it’s great fun lots of advice and help on ongoing and new projects.

    —Fran Simpson on January 9, 2019
  • I would love to join a quilting group but the area I live in doesn’t have a large population base and the one quilting group that I know of only makes quilts to be donated for missionary groups. While that is a very worthwhile goal, I would like to collaborate on challenging quilts instead of the very plain and simple 12 inch squares to be sewn together and tied.

I would like to join a quilt guild but I live in a rural area and I’m sure there are some around here but I haven’t heard of any. One of my goals this year is to attend a quilt retreat.

    —Ann Doherty on January 9, 2019
  • As often as I can.

    —Sarah Mello on January 9, 2019
  • Because I work full time, quilting with friends is a challenge.
    A couple of years ago, a group of 8 quilters exchanged fabrics for a Friendship Quilt. Making that block was a lot of fun.
    We got together for dinner and wine at Christmastime – each one signed their blocks at that gathering. I then made more blocks out of scraps from previous quilts, and put it together as a memory and friendship quilt. It’s my favorite!

    —Laure T on January 9, 2019
  • We have a group of 10-12 women that get together twice a year for three days of quilting, laughing & eating. I have two good friends that come to my house for the day 3-4 days a year and we spend the day working on our projects. I meet with a hand-sewing group once a month. The rest of the time, when I can, I nest in my sewing room & quilt. I feel blessed to have these times since I am a full-time CPA, a full-time Mimi to a 4 year old and a full-time gardener in the summer. I love that Kim & Jo have formed this partnership–the best of both worlds. I have every book Kim has written & would love to have this one along with the fabrics. What a delight that would be!!

    —Debra Stebbins on January 9, 2019
  • About every 2 weeks I get together with a dear friend. We trade thrift store wool finds and work on projects. Right now it’s a lit of projects out of Kim Deihl’s Simple Whatnots book. Love it. I sew/quilt/assemble projects every day. My family is getting really good at eating on small spots at the table. I keep several grab and go projects to take with me. It adds more stitching time to my day and it also inspires others to try something new. I have quilted all my life, starting with both Grandma’s. I can remember being under the quilts playing and they would let me take a couple stitch’s if I asked. Best memories ever! I love quilting more now than ever. It’s good for my body and my soul. Love all your books and fabric!

    —Jo Lynn John on January 9, 2019
  • Since I moved away from my quilting group, I rarely have the opportunity to quilt with friends. I’ve tried to keep in touch through social media and share projects, special finds and stash acquisitions. My greatest joy is meeting at local quilt shows and fabric stores – days doubly well spent.

    —Linda W on January 9, 2019

    —Lorea on January 9, 2019

Last fall I was able to go to a quilt camp in Indiana with seven friends . It was a sixteen hour journey by plane,including stopovers. They have never had someone come from so far away. They treated me like royalty. It was an amazing time and something I will always treasure!

    —Lois on January 9, 2019
  • Usually quilt by myself. I love Kim and Jo.

    —Judy on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt with guild members at workshops, and with bee members at our monthly meetings… though lately mostly we just sit and talk! And once a year, 20-odd of us go on a 4 day retreat, where stitching happens from 6:30 am to 9:30 pm with meals in between. Otherwise I quilt alone.

    But I learned to quilt from a dear friend when we lived 8 hours apart. I’d bring my machine to her home and we’d spend 5 days or so making a quilt, sometimes together, sometimes each working on our own project. She introduced me to guild and bee as well.

    It was these experiences that led me to move those 8 hours to spend more time with my quilt friends.

    —Lisa K Hathaway on January 9, 2019

    —Linda Hulen on January 9, 2019

    —Pamela Barnes on January 9, 2019
  • I have two quilting buddies, one is retired like I am, so we sew together as much as we can. My other quilting buddy is still working, so we sew together occasionally, but are constantly bouncing ideas off each other and shop for fabric together whenever she has the time.

    —Nancy Adams on January 9, 2019
  • I travel to or host several retreats a year from one to five days each with a dozen to forty other quilters. I always find inspiration, warmth, and productivity at them all.

    Oh, what a wonderful giveaway…. Beautiful quilts and awesome book. Thank you for the opportunity to win…. (fingers crossed)

    —Shirley on January 9, 2019
  • I live very rural, so I quilt alone. I do have 3 friends across the country that we do quilt block exchanges a few times a year. We have a blast in our exchanges, constantly showing off fabrics we find and the blocks we make. I guess you could call this "Simple Friendships" too.

    —Vicki Bovee on January 9, 2019
  • As often as we can mesh our schedules

  • I have two friends I have quilted with for at least ten years. I am 66 yrs old. Meghan is 45 years old and Juanita is 55 years old or thereabouts. It began when we were working together and then Meghan moved 159 miles away and Juanita moved with her. Though we weren’t able to meet once a month we met every couple of months. Juanita moves closer recently and despite health problems, kids and life in general we get together at least 5 or 6 times a year to sew. They are my inspiration and life savers. I wish everyone at least one sewing buddy.

    —Rebeca Wells on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt by myself. I travel a lot and spend time designing on graph paper with colored pencils on airplanes. I prefer making tops and only rarely quilt them myself anymore. Arthritis in my hands has slowed me down but I still manage a quilt about every 18 months. I prefer full bed quilts, like bright colors and patterns and make all my quilts 2 sided. I made my first quilt by hand in 1972 in an Ohio star pattern. All my quilts are patchwork and usually modern renditions of simple older patterns and all for use on beds of family and friends.

    —Judi Freed on January 9, 2019

I quilt with a wonderful group of ladies on Tuesdays from 9 am to 8 pm, and we do most all for charity, and i also quilt at home with 2 neighbors. I love it so much wish I learned long ago

    —kathy duncan on January 9, 2019
  • I had been quilting mostly at home, but my retirement community recently opened a new building with, among other amenities, a large, well lit room for quilters and other fabric and fiber folks. We have several cutting tables, iron and ironing board, lockable cabinets where we can store equipment and materials, 4 design walls, and more. The quilters are now meeting at least once a week to work there, and it is loads of fun!

    —Jane on January 9, 2019
  • It is me again–I quilt every day by my self—that way no one can hear me when I make a mistake

    Bea Donald on January 9, 2019

    —Cheryl on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt by myself but quilting with friends sounds fun!

    Julie on January 9, 2019
  • I have never quilted with firends since I became an avid quilter. However, it was beasue of a sewing circle that I learned to quilt in the first place. I don’t many people locally who quilt, but I would love to join a group. I have wanted this book ever since it came out, I hope I win!!!

    —Cheryl L Buchanan on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt by myself–I lose focus if I’m chatting with friends and make lots of mistakes. I am, however, teaching my granddaughter about sewing.

    —Allison Evrard on January 9, 2019
  • I’m a lone ranger. I tend to get up in the middle of the night and work on hand sewing, as to not make noise. Assembling friends at odd hours like that would certainly make the friend list shrink…

    —Teri N on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt everyday. On Fridays I quilt with a group of friends. Some days there are 10 of us. We have even done mini weekend retreats.

    —Virginia Over on January 9, 2019
  • I used to have a weekly night of quilting with co-workers but one moved away, one retired, and life got in the way. I would love to resume that and need to try to get some friends together again.

    —Carol Vickers on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt with friends as much as possible- you can get as much or as little progress as the mood strikes. Love this new book by Jo and Kim!

    —carol mandel on January 9, 2019
  • I love to spend time sewing alone, but I chat often with my good quilting friend. We plan our quilts, discuss ideas, and challenge each other this way. My friend is a much better quilter, so I am always encouraged by her expertise.

    —Christine P on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt alone. I haven’t met anyone who quilts and at this time I haven’t joined any quilt groups.

  • Usually on my own

    —Maria H. Goetz on January 9, 2019
  • I sew by myself. I do belong to a guild but I live an hour away so I don’t make it to our workshops.

    —Janis T on January 9, 2019
  • I love sewing with friends but unfortunately due to life it doesn’t happen often. Because of this I enjoy a guild retreat in March for a whole week this year and ever since I retired. I also love sewing on our hotel/motel trips. Just last weekend I worked on a quilt for my sister while my husband was at a Cattleman’s convention. We were both doing something we loved. Of course he doesn’t like loading up all my sewing for just a few days. But you know happy wife is a happier life.

    —Denice Kilmer on January 9, 2019
  • Every Saturday, three of us get together and sew in my “sun room” which half is for sewing and half is a sitting area. Two of us sew on a machine and the other is hand sewing a queen size quilt. We take turns bringing a simple meal. We all have busy lives and setting aside a full day of sewing has been a blessing as we help each other out and catch up on the week. We all belong to a Quilt Guild and a weekly “Sit and Sew.” I have, forever it seems, been a follower of Kim and Jo’s and to have their patterns in one book is a dream come true.

    —Madeleine Walker on January 9, 2019
  • I am part of a small quilt group that meets once a month– wish it was more though! Most of my quilting time is done solo. What a fantastic giveaway!

    —Karen on January 9, 2019

    —Claudia Olson on January 9, 2019
  • I rarely have an opportunity to do quilting projects with another person, but look forward to the times I can get together with my sister-in-law, who is a fabulous quilter! It always motivates one to accomplish more when working together.

    —Beverly Kinney on January 9, 2019
  • We live in a very rural area of West Virginia. Nearest LQS is 40 miles away, and the local guild there meets in the evenings. I usually quilt on my own because my best quilting friend here lives far away for seven months of the year. We do support each other’s projects, though. Last year we did the Edyta Sitar Quiltalong long distance. We keep in touch with email and share photos of our works in process. Since I greatly admire the creativity of both Jo Morton and Kim Diehl, I would love to win. Also want you to know that subscribing the the "Stitch This" Martingale blog is a wonderful way for me to keep up-to-date on what is going on in the world of quilting!

    —Katherine K Morvay on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt with friends as often as I can! Working on plans for a late winter retreat!

    —Stephanie Pasch on January 9, 2019
  • I do often quilt by myself, but I have a friend with very similar taste to mine that I quilt with whenever we can work it out. Quilting s a passion I will likely never give up! You ladies do such beautiful quilts! It would be an honor to win this & share it with my quilting buddy!

    —Sharon Ernst on January 9, 2019
  • As often as I can for visiting, sewing and sharing but also need "alone" time for thinking, pondering and concentrating!

    —Judy V on January 9, 2019
  • I see with friends that I have had for over 20 years. I also go on a retreat with most of them at least 3 & sometimes 4 times a year. Love my AlphaBees & my Gwinnett girls I have followed Kim & Jo for years & most of my quilts have their fabrics in them. Can’t wait for the new book

    —Jean Wolfe on January 9, 2019

    —Lisa Henderson on January 9, 2019

    —Jane on January 9, 2019
  • Most of my quilting is at home. My husband works in Prudhoe Bay , Alaska and quilting occupies my time. Every Wednesday us quilters have the opportunity to quilt at our local quilt store. We either work on our own projects or work on comfort quilts for the community.

    —Glynis Scott on January 9, 2019
  • I am in to sewing groups each month plus 1 quilt guild. We have a lot of fun in those sewing groups. We have shared more than just quilting. We have had many joys, a few sorrows and many laughs. It is more than just sewing friends, these are the ladies we can always count on when we need an ear to listen, a shoulder to cry on, or just a hug to count
    on. I’m truly blessed with these ladies in my life.

    —Lori Thomas on January 9, 2019

    —Debi Wahl on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt by myself—but quilting with friends sounds like fun. Seldom a day goes by that I’m not in my sewing room, working on a quilt or table runner. Love your quilt patterns! I’ve put together a number of Kim’s little quilt kits. They are always challenging…always fun!

    Laura White on January 9, 2019

    —Nancy Bart on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt by myself, but occasionally I go to my friend’s house and we sew together.

    Becky on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt with friends at least 4 days every month. And I’m lucky enough every summer that I get to go away at least twice for a week at a time to quilt "camp". I love my "alone" time but am constantly inspired by my quilting friends and can not imagine not spending time with them.

    —Anne at Walden Woods on January 9, 2019
  • I’m usually stitching by myself. I’m a 24/7 caregiver for my disabled husband and stitching is a great way for me to do what I enjoy while still being available to tend to my husband’s needs. I meet up with stitching friends occasionally to enjoy coffee and good chat. I loved the first Simple Friendships book – how could you not! – am anxious to get the second one!

    —Sally Albright on January 9, 2019

    —Dorice Vidger on January 9, 2019
  • I have met monthly for 14 years with five friends where we have show and tell and do hand sewing and talk about our problems both quilting and personal. We also once and sometimes twice a year go on our own quilting retreat for three days. I also personally go to reatreats that a local church puts on four times a year just for Quilters. My sister and I sew together and my next door neighbor and I get together. I am much more motivated when I am sewing with someone. They inspire me

    —Barbara Lotthammer on January 9, 2019

    Sandy Waters on January 9, 2019
  • I go to my local senior center for a Home Arts class on a weekly basis. There is a wonderful woman who has 50 years of sewing, quilting, and crafting teaching experience who guides about 20+ of us through various projects including those of our own choosing. Each of us is able to shine in our own work and the variations in choice of fabrics or design is always interesting and inspiring. Working with this group of friends has helped me grow as a quilter and community member.

    —Judy on January 9, 2019
  • I have irregular meeting with my friends. We get together when we can. Of course a lot of talking and joking goes along with sewing together. I think I actually get more done alone.

    —Sharon A on January 9, 2019
  • I meet with my quilting buddies at least twice a month. The first Saturday of the month our guild has a UFO day for personal projects. Then on the third Tuesday of the month we meet to sew comfort quilts during the day and have our program and meeting in the evening. We hold a spring and a fall retreat and I attend one or two other retreats with quilting friends each year in other communities. In addition I facilitate a Sewing Circle Monday evenings from October to April at our local resource centre. I retired to pursue my love of quilting and that is just what I am doing. Simple Friendships II looks wonderful. Thank you for sharing the interviews with Jo and Kim, and for offering this giveaway.

    —Katherine Cronn on January 9, 2019
  • I sew with two groups of ladies. Monday mornings we gather at a home close by. The other ladies stay for the day, but I am there for the mornings. Wednesday evenings, a different group of ladies gather at a church basement or one of the member’s homes for a couple hours of sewing! We met on NY day for Merry Mayhem. I got 3/4 of a quilt as you go twin quilt done in just one day!

    —Judy Hunsberger on January 9, 2019
  • I don’t have many opportunities to quilt with friends but our guild meets a few times a year to work on service projects and to share skills. We try to do a challenge every year as well and the show and tell at the end of our guild’s year is not to be missed. I would love to add these fabrics to my stash, and until getting around to putting them into projects would surely enjoy thinking about a visit with their creators.

    —sharon butera on January 9, 2019
  • As often as I can! Gorgeous fabrics and book. I would really LOVE to win this. Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Barbara Reifsnider on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt alone. Quilting with friends makes me concentrate on conversations and not my seam allowances. But quilting with friends is enjoyable for the social time. The first book by Jo and Kim is delightful!

    —Susan Norrell on January 9, 2019
  • I typically quilt by myself. My niece and her daughter are slowly getting into it but they live about 1 hour away. My LQS has classes, but most of those ladies are retired and the classes are during the day so i can’t always take them. I go on 1 annual retreat and i love the company and love being inspired by all the wonderful quilters at the retreat. This year i am being ambitious at the retreat…taking fabric for 1 quilt, the finished blocks for another quilt, fabric and supplies for some zipper pouches and fabric for a curved log cabin that is on my list to make. Don’t think i will get everything done but i sure don’t want to run out of project.

    —Connie Maresh on January 9, 2019

    —Chris on January 9, 2019
  • This book looks wonderful! My quilt group has a retreat three times a year and we all enjoy sewing together. As they have retired and moved away from the big city I enjoy going to their new homes, visiting and sewing with them. If I am sewing alone in my messy sewing room, I am usually listening to a audio book.

    —Linda Ferguson on January 9, 2019
  • I sew with friends on retreats, but would love to gather more often. Now that some have retired like I am, we are going to carve out time to do just as much stitching together as we can.
    Our group at church meets once a week to sandwich and tie quilts for Lutheran Relief. I count that as quilting with friends.

    Dianne Gillin on January 9, 2019
  • I belong to a wonderful quilt guild that provides many opportunities to quilt with quilting friends. We have sit and sews, retreats, and small interest groups. There’s nothing better than spending time with other quilters! I’ve moved twice since learning to quilt 17 years ago and it’s the best way to make new, long lasting friendships. Thanks for the giveaway. I just love Kim and Jo’s work!

Love going to retreats and be with others for a few days. Used to bring grandson #3 with me to a Friday afternoon get-together. He’d sleep in his stroller or crawl around on the floor. The girls loved having him around. He’s turning 13 in about 2 weeks.

    —Roz Agulnik on January 9, 2019

I had my own spot on the quilt that had been put in a huge frame back in the 50’s. When they tacked wool comforters that was so fun and faster. I took quilting classes right before our 39 yr old daughter was born. Great therapy! I love all these books and fabrics..they are EYE CANDY! I’d be so pleased to win any part of this offer.

  • While I quilt alone, I have my quilty friends. 2 are from college days (not saying how long ago but it’s been awhile) and my mother-in-law has been a true inspiration. We don’t sew together but chat often about WIPs, what we would like to do next, problems, new ideas and gadgets, and inspiration. We all have different tastes in quilting but we can enjoy each others efforts and sometimes push each other out of our boxes. And when we see each other; we always have show & tell!

  • Not enough! I have friends that quilt, but we can’t get together near enough! Even if it’s a personal friend, or a quilty friend that I never have met in person, We post our finishes, we follow each others’ blogs and Facebook and instagram, etc.
    Even my best friend, who doesn’t know how to sew nor quilt, comes to quilt shows with me, classes, and is my sounding board when I need ideas and opinions or support or motivation! And sometimes, she does those things because she wants to spend time with me, and she knows I love to quilt, and she admires my skills and the skills of others.
    So even though I work well by myself, I need friends and company!

  • I recently retired from my job as a nurse case manager. A few of us at work love to quilt and so decided we would have aweekly sewing night. We continue to meet each Wednesday night to work on our quilting or stitchery projects. I am blessed to have a partner who loves to quilt too. He is a beginner and had made his first quilt. I’m so proud of him. We sew our quilts together. We also go together to my previous workplace to sew with our friends there. It is a great time together, enjoy each other’s company, and to bounce ideas off each other. Love quilting and doing so with my partner and my friends.

    Nita on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt alone. I work full time and time is precious. Packing things up and going somewhere is usually not relaxing for me and cleaning up for someone else to come to my house is not fun either. I have friends I go shopping with or just visit with now and then and talk about sewing. Maybe some day when I am retired….

They are the best group of ladies and one of the frills we enjoy is our Christmas luncheon at one of the members home where we exchange gifts. The best frill is that we all know we are there for each other for friendship, love and support.

  • Sadly, I only get to see my quilting friends once a year as I’ve moved out of state . To make matters worse I was unable to attend the fall retreat for the past two years! We encourage each other through emails and texts as well as sending each other little homemade kits, but it is so much nicer to see one another in person. I’ve learned so much from them over the years. Toes crossed I’ll see them in the fall! I’ve always admired these artists and appreciate the opportunity to win something!! Many thanks!

  • I have an awesome group of 9 friends in South Bend which is about 2 hours from me. We’ve been quilting for 17 years or so. I met Barb at the Indiana State Quilt Guild retreat in Shipshewana and she brought me into the group. They quilt every Thursday night. We gather 4x a year for a weekend at Kallie’s house which is Next Door (ND like the university) to her house – her husband bought it for her quilting and her knitting! We stay there. In the summer we go to Kristin’s lake cottage in Michigan. Kristin used to live in South Bend but now she’s in Pittsburgh but she still comes back to Quilt. It’s the best group of gals and we have an awesome time together sewing, eating, drinking (after we’re finished sewing) – watching movies and shopping if were so inclined!

  • For many years, I was able to share an informal quilting retreat with a few friends once or twice a year. Life has interfered with that over the last couple of years. I miss it, not so much for the quilting that gets done, but for the camaraderie we shared. Fortunately, I able still able to share projects, collaboration, motivation, and encouragement with my quilty friends via the Internet.

    —Constance Pentzer on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt by myself as it is my relaxing, disconnect time from all the busyness around me. The only time I have quilted with someone has been while visiting my mom a couple times a year. Such great memories. I do, though, appreciate input from others about my projects to get a different perspective and learn ways to improve.

    —Jeanne on January 9, 2019
  • I usually quilt by myself, not many people around here who quilt. I belong to a Project Linus group but we don’t sew together, most of the time we process blankets brought in. In the winter I join with another great lot of women including my daughter at a Quilt Retreat and I get so much done in that week-end and have so many laughs, I hate to stop and go home. The books look inviting to use all the scraps I have and have the great fabrics.

  • Our ‘guild’ meets on the 2nd and 4th Wed every month. Sometimes we’ll throw in an all-day quilting when we ‘workers’ have a stat holiday. And sometimes we go on a road trip to shop for more fabric. 🙂 Quilt shops are few-and-far-between in our neck of the woods! So it takes a days’ travel to get to a few!

    —Janet Gervin on January 9, 2019

There’s 6-8 of us that retreat together about 4 times a year and we also get together as often as we can at one of the girls homes. We have overnight accommodations at Carolyn’s nrw home in the woods of Dallas Co. Mo. Lots of food, laughter and fun. We encourage eachother to try different things.

  • Buongiorno,
    non cucio spesso con un’amica, ma spesso mi scambio idee e progetti,
    buon lavoro creativo

    I do not often sew with a friend, but I often exchange ideas and projects,
    good creative work

    —Sabrina on January 9, 2019
  • I quilt with my local friends every Thursday. We don’t always get lots of sewing done but do enjoy the companionship and seeing what we are all working on. I have some other Quilting friends who live much further away and we try to get together to quilt at any opportunity but it doesn’t happen very often.

    —Claire on January 10, 2019

    —Cindy Peters on January 10, 2019

    —Alison Green on January 10, 2019
  • I have regular meet ups with my quilting buds. We call our group Let’s Qulit Saturday. We quilt, we sew, We make things for charities. Bags, toys and clothes for the Christmas Shoebox appeal, Flanelette Hearts for the Neonatal Unit of the Mater Maternity Hospital, heat bags for eyes donated to the Brisbane Eye Hospital. It is amazing how many things you can be involved in when you use a sewing machine

Then she decided to find a new partner so I am back to quilting alone (the nearest group is 1 hour away and I don’t drive)

    grace thorne on January 10, 2019
  • I am new to quilting and have only completed 3 projects – unfortunately my disability makes quilting with friends really difficult. But it does not prevent me from following blogs and doing online classes. currently planning a landscape quilt "four seasons of a cherry tree" and in the middle of a quilt for my son and partner. love this new collection – it would fit in well for the autumn panel of my landscape project.

    —Tina Heron on January 10, 2019

I go "on retreat" with a larger group of sewing buddies twice a year. It’s amazing the things we learn from each other.

    —reniem on January 10, 2019

Many subsequent classes later, always on Wednesday afternoon (now a “Keep On Quilting” class), we’re still together. No class session, no problem! We meet at one another’s homes. We text each other all week long too. The friendship of these 7 women is one of the greatest blessings of my life!

    —Bette on January 10, 2019
  • I love the conversation and sharing that goes on when sewing with my BFF when we get together. I also enjoy sewing with gals in our charity group each month. You are never so good at sewing to not learn something from another sewer or quilter.

We meet monthly to sew and have a meeting once a quarter. If you did not complete one of your projects in a quarter you get you picture taken on the “wall of shame”. It is great fun and a wonderful way to encourage each other.

    —Debbie Przymus on January 10, 2019

Depending on personal schedules, anywhere from 5-10 regularly attend. We work on our own projects, some of which are from the same pattern but with our own style. There’s lots of help when you need it.

    —Marianne from TN on January 11, 2019
  • I quilt by myself. My friends don’t have an interest in sewing or quilting. My sister does excellent sewing, but she lives 5 hours away. It would be fun to sew with her…I’d probably learn something

  • Both but I prefer to quilt alone. I can concentrate better.

I try to quilt everyday …. I love it!!!

    —Brenda on January 11, 2019

    —Linda Smith on January 11, 2019
  • I quilt weekly with my patchwork friends and am lucky enough to attend 3 retreats a year. My sister and I try to catch up twice a month to sew as we live an hour apart. I think Jo and Kim are wonderful designers and their fabrics are to die for.

    —Alexia Jandourek on January 11, 2019
  • Where would we be without *excellent* designers such as Kim & Jo? They have both impacted my quilting journey with their fabulous books, awesome fabrics (gotta love those saturated colours) and detailed instructions. Thank you both for your hard work and thank you, Martingale, for publishing these amazing ladies.

    —Annette Johnston on January 11, 2019

I, by sheer chance, walked into a local quilt shop and was immediately welcomed in joining their Wednesday/Friday quilting group! I can’t even begin to tell how these ladies have changed my life! Now, I am learning so many different ways to quilt and have a social life again! I love being part of such thoughtful and caring quilting friends!

  • I usually sew by myself as I work a lot of hours at my job & live 4 hours away from family. I do try to get back to my parents, as my mom originally taught me how to sew! I would love to take a week vacation somewhere to just simply sew with a group of ladies!!

  • I quilt at home by myself after work when I have the chance. More so in the winter and hot of summer. I also quilt with my Mom about twice a month. Or we like to visit a couple of shops to purchase quilt goodies if we don’t have time to sit and sew to together.

  • I have regular meetups with my quilting buds. We quilt together regularly twice a month, and I attend some small, local retreats 5x/year. But I never turn down an offer to quilt with any friends who want me to join them!

  • Not often enough! We moved here a couple of years ago and I have been endeavouring to create connections. It’s one of my goals to make this quilting connection a lasting one this year!

  • I just love civil war quilts. I have several of Kim Diehl’s books and love them all. I have taken 3 What Knots classes too. Presently I am in the process of making Kim’s Warm Regards quilt, I love it so much. I usually quilt at night by myself but I do meet with quilters three times a month. I belong to 3 quilting guilds and we meet once a month each. I also attend 4 retreats a year so I guess you could call that as quilting together with friends.

  • Awesome giveaway. Love your website have had a ball reading it this morning.

  • I usually machine quilt alone but some days a sewer friend joins me. But right now we are busy sewing at our church Touch Quilts for our local Alzheimer clients. These are small Quilts 7sq. by 7 squares with as many touchy feel textures and small objects as possible( like beads, zippers, small spools, yarn, ribbons). We are enjoying the opportunity of working on a common project for such a need in our community. We would use this beautiful package to create more Quilts!

    —Janet Fletcher on January 14, 2019
  • I usually quilt by myself, but I do take occasional classes at a local quilt shop and that gives me a chance to meet other quilters. I don’t have a local quilt shop that offers Kim’s Simple Whatnots Club, but I’ve been able to participate as a "mail order member" in a club in the town where I was married. Love it!

    —Deborah on January 14, 2019
  • I quilt as often as I can with my friends, but the majority of my Quilting is done alone.

  • Snacks,Fabric stash and quilting friends
    is my idea of a happy day.
    Sometimes we eat more than we sew but
    it’s the time we share that makes it rewarding.

  • My Mom is my best friend and I leave a sewing machine at her house so nearly every time I visit, I have an ongoing project there to work on while she works on her own projects! (We live 5 minutes apart, which makes quilting together so easy!)

    —Claire KD on January 15, 2019

  • It is just myself and my Mom since we belong to our local chapter of Project Linus. When we do have a finished quilt, we do share with our fellow chapter members. It is easier for us to take a yarn project to our blanket days rather than a sewing machine. We all do have our fun sharing what we have made.

    —Judith Campo on January 15, 2019
  • I am fortunate to get together with two quilting friends twice a month. We try to schedule every other Monday, rotating to each others house. The rest of the time I try to sew/quilt a little bit everyday by myself.
