Bittersweet Briar quilt from Simple GracesIn her ninth book, Simple Appliqué, Kim shares her best techniques—developed over years of teaching thousands of appliqué students—for six different ways to appliqué. (Did you even know there were six ways to appliqué?) From traditional needle-turn appliqué to her signature invisible machine method, Simple Appliqué is a class, a show-and-tell, a guidebook, and a reference all in one—and it’s a book you’ll rely on for as long as you love needle and thread.

DID YOU KNOW? After teaching herself the steps needed to make a quilt in the late 1990s, Kim entered and won American Patchwork & Quilting magazine’s “Pieces of the Past” quilt challenge with the third quilt she’d ever made.

Oh, and don’t forget—Simple Appliqué is a project book too! Once you experiment with all six techniques, you can choose your favorite to create Kim’s stunning “Scrap Basket Blossoms” quilt. The complete pattern is included.

Kim DiehlGreetings from Idaho! I’ve been so blessed to be a quiltmaker for more than 15 years, and while I’ve loved making each and every one of my quilts, my very favorite projects have always been those that include appliqué. I’m really passionate about appliqué and I love the magic that even simple designs can bring to a quilt—so much so, that I’ve spent more than 10 years traveling around the country teaching my techniques.

During my travels I’ve had the opportunity to meet lots of quiltmakers who enjoy appliqué, but in all honesty, I’ve also met others who consider it to be the “A-word” and find it more than a little bit intimidating. My goal in writing Simple Appliqué is to show that when appliqué is broken down into small, simple steps, it’s very approachable and SO not scary!

In Simple Appliqué, six of my favorite appliqué techniques are explained in down-to-earth, easy-to-understand language, with each section featuring tons of how-to photos and illustrations.

For an added dollop of inspiration, and to give you the itch to stitch, I’ve included scads of my favorite quilt photos from my previous books.

The icing on the appliqué cake is the dozens of “Pin Point” tips shared throughout Simple Appliqué—little tips, tricks, and hints that I’ve learned through many years of trial and error while I honed my appliqué skills. Here’s just one great tip from the book:

Pin Point tip from Simple Applique

With a few quick swipes of your pencil, the “Fit Your Skill Level” tip will make any appliqué project doable as you learn, until one day you realize that this step is no longer necessary and you can stitch any shape with confidence!

It’s my hope that as you read through the steps for each of the six appliqué methods, you’ll feel like we’ve tackled them together. I hope you enjoy Simple Appliqué!

  • I haven’t tried wool applique. Saw a trunk show recently and this was the demonstrators new love.

    —NancyR on April 16, 2015
  • The only applique method I’ve used of the ones mentioned is fusible and I didn’t have the best results. I am super interested in trying trapunto and I love the puffed look and the dimensions it gives. What a beautiful bundle of fabric to one lucky reader!!

    —Kathy E. on April 16, 2015
  • I have only done fusible applique, and would really like to try the other techniques. LOVE Kim’s books and thanks for the "sew" wonderful give-away.

    —Cecelia on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried machine trapunto or wool applique yet. i need alot more practice at needle turn applique, because I tend to use my fingernails more than the needle. 🙂

    —Tia M.M. Hegstad on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried needle turn applique. I would like to find a small project to give it a try. Kim Diehl’s books and fabric are my absolute FAVORITE!!!!

    —Shannon Wicker on April 16, 2015
  • I have never tried Trapunto. Love that Scrap Basket Blossoms. The colors are so pretty.

    —Robyn B on April 16, 2015
  • Anytime I have to appliqué something, needle turned or the freezer paper method are my go to methods.

    —Katherine Grimsdale on April 16, 2015
  • Love, love, love Kim’s work. Have yet to try wool appliqué.

    —Barbara on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried fusion or trapunto. To be honest I am not sure what fusion applique consists of. I am familiar with all the other forms of applique. I do a lot of work with wool and I love fusible cotton applique. I have a needle turn quilt in progress using Baltimore designs. I really love it all and would be delighted to win Kim’s fabric and book. I have done her design and have much success. Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Patricia D. Roberts on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto applique and frankly, I get frustrated whenever I do needle-turn applique (points on leaves, especially). I love to learn ways to improve my applique.

    —Bonnie Hernandez on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto or fusion. I do like the other applique techniques and am a big fan of anything Kim Diehl makes!!!

    Diane Hinton on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried needle turned, machine, fusible, and wool. But not very good at any of them so I need help! Not even sure what fusion or trapunto methods are so have not done them. Thanks for the chance to win Kim’s helpful book and lovely fabric.

    —Cindy Wienstroer on April 16, 2015
  • I’m interested and what the image of the little dot of glue are used for. I take it they would hold down the fabric but does that not stiffen up the edges? Is this done on the whole applique piece before stitching it down or just sections. I think this would be fabulous for making sure your applique piece looks perfect before starting to stitch it down.

    I have so much to learn about applique and I would love a chance to win this book so I can learn from the start on the different ways this can be done.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Eva McCormack on April 16, 2015
  • I have never tried trapunto !!! Yes that scares me and intimidates me tremendously. I am hoping to get a copy of Kim Diehl’s book and try this method.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    Brenda Travis

    —Brenda Travis on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t done the following techniques for applique:needle turn, trapunto, fusion, and wool. I am in a BOM that has a lot of applique and I am excited to learn more about it. I believe Kim’s book would help me learn and grow out of my comfort zone about applique.

    —Linda on April 16, 2015
  • I did a little applique when I was a teenager and assume it was needle turned but lately I would love to try the new methods. The book and the fabric look terrific. Hope I win!

    —Debbie Holley on April 16, 2015
  • I have never tried trapunto. Looks like another winner for Kim Diehl.

    —Pat Rudolph on April 16, 2015
  • I have all of the books Kim has wrote so far and would love to make each and everyone of her quilts . I love them all so am having a hard time making up my mind which one to make. Her fabric line is to die for too the colors are great. I just need more hours in a day. Will be getting her newest books as soon as possible . Thanks Kim keep up the great work.

    —Monica Schwartz on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve not been completely successful in applique work, but want to master it! Don’t know what the fusion method is, so I’ll have to try that!!

    —Casey Devine on April 16, 2015
  • I just started quilting last year so haven’t learned applique yet. This looks like a great way to get started on a new technique for me!

    —Bunny Wilson on April 16, 2015
  • I have several Kim Diehl books and love the pictures of the new book. I have not tried wool applique or trapunto and would love to incorporate those techniques into a quilt. Kim is so creative and I would love to have her new book and the fabrics to try some of the patterns.

    —Donna Olson on April 16, 2015
  • I have done only needle turn, fusible, and wool applique, so I need to put machine, fusion, and trapunto applique on my quilty bucket list!

    —Karen Seitz on April 16, 2015
  • I have used all of these methods and love to appliqué. One of the hardest for me starting out was learning the differences in fusiblables. I haven’t done any for a while now and I bet you have lots of tips, as yours is beautiful.

    —Kimberly P on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto applique and I am not sure what fusion applique is so I don’t think I have ever tried it before. I am a kim Diehl junkie and I think that everything is better with a little applique. I use applique like other people use fancy quilting. Got a little blank space, fill it up with a little applique.

    —Lewcrese on April 16, 2015
  • I love Kim Diehl’s quilts and am looking forward to learning more about her appliqué methods. I have not tried trapunto.

    —Patty Stober on April 16, 2015
  • Although I love and admire Kim’s work I have never gotten up the nerve to try applique. It looks so complicated! I should just give it a try and maybe I’ll become hooked?! Thanks for the chance to win a prize 🙂

    —Katie Harland on April 16, 2015
  • I would LOVE to learn to applique…but I’m a very visual learner and have not found someone to teach me (I live far from ANY quilt/fabric stores) and do not know any quilters nearby…therefore I am entirely self-taught. Sounds like this book is just what I NEED!!!! Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy along with some gorgeous fabrics (as my quilting budget) is very limited.

    —Diane D on April 16, 2015
  • Applique quilts are beautiful. I have tried needle turn and fusible applique. It would be very interesting to try additional techniques.

    —Robin on April 16, 2015
  • I love wool applique and also love hand invisible applique using freezer paper, starch, and glue. Love Kim – I have her books, patterns, and always try to get at least a fat quarter bundle of her lines of fabrics. Kim is my hero – I would love this book as I would love to try the invisible machine applique.

    —Dee on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto, fusion, wool, and fusible.

    —Vicky on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried all applique way except the fusion. I will love seeing Kim’s 6 ways so I can improve my way. My most favorite applique is needle turn.

    —Judy Streetman on April 16, 2015
  • So far, I’ve tried everything except the wool applique. The book looks interesting and the fabrics look yummy!

    —Marilyn on April 16, 2015
  • Kim’s quilts are inspiring. I love that mulberry color that pops up so often. I haven’t tried wool applique or trapunto-maybe if I win this book? Fingers crossed!

    —Tammy in NC on April 16, 2015
  • LOVE Kim Diehl! Haven’t quite mastered all appliqué techniques but try my best!!

    —Jill Drouillard on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried needle turn or trapunto. I have done several projects, but I know I could learn a lot from Kim’s hints.

    —Janice Mc Laren on April 16, 2015

    —Becky Lomasney on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried the needle-turn method of applique as yet. Looking forward to Kim’s new book outlining her method. I love her fabric line and would love to win the FQs. Thanks.

    —Bev Hoek on April 16, 2015

    —Rynetta Coetzee on April 16, 2015
  • Wow! This looks great. I’d love to learn how to do needle turn and trapunto. My youngest kids are now old enough that I can spend time in the sewing room again. This is going on my Mother’s Day wish list.

    —Michele on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried wool applique. It is pretty but I don’t intend to try either. Since a child any wool would cause me to itch the whole day. I am afraid to try it.

    —Betty on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve never done trapunto or wool- I’m allergic to wool! I love to applique by hand. I usually use starch to turn edges.

    —Barbara Ostrander on April 16, 2015
  • Would love to learn more about machine applique and needle turn applique. What a delight it would be to win Kim’s latest line of fabric from Henry Glass with her book on applique!

    —Barbara Niekerk on April 16, 2015
  • I had no idea there were 6 different ways to applique. I have needle turned, fused and machine appliqued. I am curious about the other 3 techniques. Would love to learn them!

    —Sherry Glidden on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried needle turn applique. I’d love some help.

    —Shirley Williams on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve taken an applique class from Kim in the past–love her, her fabrics and her books! I’ve never done trapunto–seems a little scary!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto. I would love to learn some new tips for needle turn and fusion. Thanks for the opportunity

    —Linda on April 16, 2015
  • I want to try them all…

    —Susan Kinard on April 16, 2015
  • I have never used fusible for applique i love to needle turn .

    Barbara VanBurger on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried just about all of the techniques, except for trapunto. I would like to find a pattern to use that method.

    —Maggie on April 16, 2015
  • I have done a few quilts but only 2 with appliques, very simple appliques, I zig zagged some snowflakes on a frozen quilt and a Olaf quilt, but I am hooked I NEED to plan some more projects and this book could give me instructions I could really use.
    Thanks for the chance!!

    —Cheryl on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried machine trapunto yet and I love the look of the 3D effect. I also haven’t tried needle turn appliqué but am interested in learning how. Your book looks like a valuable teaching tool.

    —Judy Anderson on April 16, 2015
  • Wow this looks like a wonderful book. I have one of her books and love it. I have a problem with my hand so I would love to learn to do machine applique. Thanks for the offer

    —Lynda Morrissette on April 16, 2015

    —Judith Beach on April 16, 2015
  • Wow! Great give away! I love appliqué but have ONLY done fusible. Would love to learn new methods.

    —Connie on April 16, 2015

  • I have not tried fusion or trapunto applique. I have tried all of the other methods and I like fusible machine applique the best so far. I love Kim’s designs & colors. Thanks for a chance to win her book & fabric!!

    —Linda Thomas on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried all of the methods mentioned over a period of years, but the one that really works for me, and which has finally allowed me to create pieces I am proud of, is the starch method (3 layers of freezer paper, design traced on the first layer in reverse, two more layers ironed on, then cut out, ironed onto the wrong side of the fabric, edges painted with starch, edges ironed inwards, and then paper removed).

    —Jenny Kolbusz on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto yet and I have never even heard of fusion before, at least by that name. I’m doing all my applique with fusibles these days.

    —Suzanne on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried needle turned or trapunto style appliqué.

    —Lee Dueck on April 16, 2015
  • Trapunto, wool, and fusion.

    —Sherry on April 16, 2015
  • I have not yet tried Trapunto or wool applique, but wool applique will be next. I have learned many methods of applique, but my favorite is fusible and I like to design my own patterns as well as using existing patterns. I LOVE APPLIQUE. I also love Kim Diel’s applique and her color choices. They are so warm and appealing.

    Barbara Theriault on April 16, 2015

    —Judi B on April 16, 2015

    —Mary Cunningham on April 16, 2015
  • Would love to learn the six of the appliqué techniques that will be explained in down-to-earth, easy-to-understand language.

    Doris Cardno on April 16, 2015

    —Margaret Lawrence on April 16, 2015
  • This looks like an awesome book! I have done some applique, needle turn, machine, fusible and wool but I never feel my applique looks real good. Would like to learn some new tips. Beautiful fabric also. THANKs!!

    —Donna H. on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried all the applique methods but think needleturn using freezer paper is the best. Our local quilt guild had Kim Diehl here as a guest speaker and I was able to take her class. If she is ever in your area, I highly recommend her class as I learned so much and she is such a great speaker.

    —Judi Rizzo on April 16, 2015
  • Oh please oh please oh please!! I would love to win this book and fabric bundle! I am a HUGE fan of Kim Diehl and her designs, and I have 3 of her books. I’ve only tried fusible so far and am such an applique-phobe! But seeing the different types of applique makes me want to really dive in because I’d love to make a bunch of her quilts! Thank you!

  • Would love to become more proficient at applique.

    —Joan on April 16, 2015
  • I have done machine applique & fusible applique, but haven’t done any of the other methods.

    —Debra Reber on April 16, 2015
  • I have completed appliques with machine and fusible techniques. I have looked at Kim’s method but haven’t tried it. I love her patterns however and would love to try the other four ways (needle turn,trapunto, fusion, wool) because I like the way they look, for sure! And her fabric line is wonderful.

    —Janey on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tryed trapunto, wool. My aunt made beautiful applique using flour sacks and i hope to be close to her work
    Mary

    —Mary Abbott on April 16, 2015
  • I love the look of handwork, but my hands cannot take it, so I have been working on learning machine applique techniques. I have not done needle turn, trapunto or worked with wool yet.

    I am inspired by Kim’s quilts all the time. Thanks!

    —Jean on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto.

    —Cheryl Strayer on April 16, 2015
  • This would be a great book for me to learn applique. I’ve only done fusible, and I’d love to learn needle turn. thanks for the chance to win the book and the fabric.

    Deb on April 16, 2015
  • I love Kim’s quilts. I already have 3 of her books. I mostly use the fusible method although I have tried all the other methods except for fusion. I would really like to learn more about that (fusion).

    —Liz dicrescenzo on April 16, 2015
  • Since I don’t know what fusion is, I guess I’ll say that I haven’t tried that method. Just pulled one of Kim’s older books off my shelf to study her applique methods. I’m doing a machine applique piece. I prefer her methods to the one in the pattern. Thanks!

    —Becky in Georgia on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried needle turn applique or trapunto. I have several of Kim’s books and enjoy them very much.

    —Louise Warren on April 16, 2015
  • I LOVE appliqué and am always up for learning something new. What is "fusion" appliqué? I will have to get Kim’s book just to find out. Plus the fabric pack looks luscious!

    —Nygal on April 16, 2015
  • I mostly do wool applique, although I have used some other methods such as machine applique and needleturn. I would love to learn Kim’s methods and try to make some of her beautiful projects.

    —Zane Jacks on April 16, 2015
  • The only applique I have done is fusible. I have a wool project ready to start but not sure how to do the blanket stitch. I love the look of applique and need to improve my skill level. The book looks great.

    —Barbara D on April 16, 2015
  • I have never tried trapunto applique or wool applique. Both are on my "to do" list! Thank you for all the inspiration.

    —Sharon Jobin on April 16, 2015
  • I`ve never tried needle turn, trapunto, nor fusion, but would like to learn. Love the fabric and the book looks wonderful.

    Thank you so much for the chance to win. I learn so much better with visuals.

    —Sharon Harmon on April 16, 2015
  • To be perfectly honest, I’m not that good at applique, at least not at getting the shapes to be smooth and rounded where they are supposed to be. I’ve haven’t don needle turn, trapunto, or wool applique. I like the look of applique a lot and would like to do more and incorporate it into all of my quilting projects. What I’ve done in the past is machine applique and fusible applique. Right now I am working on a table topper with hand applique and hand stitching most of it, but as I stated an the opening, I’m not that good at it. I just love doing it and I love Kim’s book, Simple Appeal!

    —Barbara Bobbitt on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried needle turned, wool, fusible and back basting applique. I love Kim’s patterns and her use of color is superb! I hope today is my lucky day and I win her newest book and the fabric bundle…

    —Doris on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried wool applique but have tried the rest at one point or another over the years.

    —Peggy on April 16, 2015
  • I do fusible with the lite Heat n bond. Then I machine applique around the applique. I don’ t like needle turn and I haven’t tried the others.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Sharon B on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried machine appliqué yet because I love to needle turn appliqué so much! Love all of Kim Diehl’s books and projects. Her color selections are amazing, and always make me feel happy to see them.

    —Dixie on April 16, 2015
  • I started with fusible raw edge appliqué. I tried needle turn but it was a bit slow for me. Now I am doing a Bunny Hill Christmas quilt using invisible machine appliqué. I think I have found my technique!

    Nancy Parrott on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto or fusion but am anxious to acquire this book and read about these two methods along with the others and give these two a try. I love Kim’s patterns. It’s wonderful that there’s always new things to learn.

    —Jane Hallingstad on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried machine applique, but it didn’t look very good, so I try to stay away from it. I love the looks of applique, but stick to piecing.

    —Judy D on April 16, 2015
  • I absolutely love Kim Diehl’s designs. I haven’t done any wool appliqué yet, but I do have a kit to try it soon and several of Kim’s patterns on my "to do" list. Thanks for the give-away. It would be awesome to win!

    —Debby on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto, fusion or wool applique. This looks like a wonderful book. Thanks for a chance to win.

    —Mary on April 16, 2015
  • I don’t care what time of the year it is I always love what we call fall/Autumn colors and appliqued quilts with these colors always gives my home that warm feeling. Not to say that I don’t love pastels, I do as well. With this fabric I will make a small lap quilt to be set out for someone to win it at the fall Tea Cups for Cancer that I do in the spring and fall and this year will do this summer. Tea cups are donated and sold with the proceeds going to the Eagles Cancer Telethon in Rochester and in turn that give the funds to Cancer Research, Rochester Mayo Clinic.

I would love to learn how to do them.

    —Joan Sauger on April 16, 2015

    —Karen Conway on April 16, 2015

Kim Diehl’s ‘Simple Applique’ and fabric line have my interest peaked once again! Just beautiful! I’ve always wanted to try needle turn, and I have to tell you that Henry Glass is my favorite fabric company. I just love the hand of their fabric and the ease of use. What a wonderful giveaway!

    —Tara Starzomski on April 16, 2015

    —Barbara S on April 16, 2015
  • I love the look of appliquéd quilts and have so many I’d like to make. I’ve tried a stain glass window which was sticky, and completed one quilt with some raw edge appliqué which I find I am dissatisfied with. I’d like those edges neatly finished and secured so that no ravelling can possibly occur. All my other appliqué projects are on hold until I can find the best way solve that problem, while still doing the work by machine. Oh I hope I win this book!

    —Kathleen on April 16, 2015

    —Barb Skinner on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried the wool applique method yet, and really don’t know anything about it. So far machine applique is my favorite method, its fast and so easy. P.S. I’m from Idaho too.

    —Karen on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve tried needle turn, machine, and fusible. I love applique quilting. My mother was an avid quilter but I never thought I could until my baby sister gave me some basic pointers. I love the fabric in the Heritage Hollow collection and the appliances are beautiful. Can’t wait to try these.

    —Susie on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve tried all except wool, which is on the short list of what’s next. It’s great to have options, and it never hurts to have a good how-to reference close at hand. Beautiful colors in the fat eighths pack. Thanks for the continued inspirations!

    —Jane on April 16, 2015
  • WOW this Book sounds like a great way to learn how to appliqué. Yes I am one of those that use the "A Word is like not for me". It scares me. I’ve tried classes at a local quilt shop where the owner is the same way as I Am. I’ve seen trapunto and would love to learn! Also, I ve had BOM where there has been appliqué and I would skip that block or tried and would get so frustrated I ve just stop making it. I am not sure if I can do it but Iam open to try something that will work. I do love Kim’s work. As so as I can afford your book I will buy it. Love all her quilts. Thank you also do a chance to win this beauitful at quarter, love them.

    —Cathy on April 16, 2015
  • I have done a little needle-turn and machine appliqued fusible–no trapunto or wool as yet. The wool looks like it would be fun to work with and gives a nice soft look.

    Barb on April 16, 2015

    Joyce willcox on April 16, 2015

    —Jill Ellis on April 16, 2015

    —Sylvia Lutz on April 16, 2015
  • I first learned needle turning with my grandmother (I was probably 12, I’m 54 now). Until just a year ago, I’d never ventured to try any other way. I didn’t really know there were so many other options for applique. Since then I have tried fusible and machine quilting. I’ve worked with wool felt but never in quilts. And I’ve never seen trapunto and I’m not sure what fusion is! I’ve had Kim’s new book on my wish list for a couple months now. I’m so happy it’s time to buy it!!

    —Terri B on April 16, 2015
  • Trapunto

    —Christy trevino on April 16, 2015

    —Carline Anthony on April 16, 2015

    —Sylvia Lutz on April 16, 2015
  • I still haven’t tried Trapunto or fusion. There are so many ways to do applique but Kim’s method is my favorite. The look of hand stitched when it is machine sewn makes me happy!!!

    Diane Nagle on April 16, 2015
  • I love applique and most often use needle-turn, but have done fusible, English paper piecing, and wool applique. I would like to try freezer paper applique and would love to win Kim’s book, Simple Applique.

    —Margie Jones on April 16, 2015

    —Virginia Over on April 16, 2015

    Would love your book but being on disability limits what I can buy.

    —Debbie Alegria on April 16, 2015
  • While I have done simple, and very visible, hand and machine appliqué on clothes and accessories for my children and grandchildren, I have only recently started appliqué on quilts – hand-stitched. I would really love to have this book as I am a visual learner when it comes to crafts, and this seems an ideal way for me to increase my skills and take the scary step of invisible machine appliqué. The fabrics look wonderful, too and would be a fantastic addition to my stash!!

    —Vanessa Cato on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried Trapunto, needle turn or wool applique, but want to try trapunto and working with wool. Thank

    —Lisa D on April 16, 2015
  • I have several of Kim’s books and took a class from her a couple of years ago I have made several of her projects and know I would enjoy her new book and fabric pack. Can’t wait to see her latest projects.

    —Carol Kozelka on April 16, 2015

I have just completed my first mini applique piece with freezer paper/starch method and was pleased with the results. I would love to win your book as I would like to try all the different methods to see if I like one better. Love your fabrics also.

  • I really want to learn to do needle turn applique…….

    —virginia dale on April 16, 2015
  • Applique is something I love to look at and do like to do. After reading about Kim’s new book I find there are many techniques I have not done. Such as trapunto, fusion and using glue. I am probably on the far side of a traditional quilter and love the feel of needle and thread in my hand as I create a project for a friends or family member. I do like doing applique on my sewing machine also.

    —robin koenig on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried needle turn appliqué yet but I would like to learn. I don’t know how much I would actually use it because other methods are so much quicker but it would be nice to know how to do it. Thanks for the giveaway. I just love Kim’s fabrics!

    —Susan Griffith on April 16, 2015
  • I am a beginner. I only did machine and needle turn applique but Kim’s applique and use of colour is always so b e a u t i f u l. Thanks Kim for sharing your talents with our beginners

    —Vicki on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried machine, trapunto, fusion, wool, or fusible applique.

    —Susan on April 16, 2015
  • I’ll be honest, I haven’t done much applique at all. In fact the only thing I have done remotely applique was to blanket stitch solid double sided circles onto a background. I’d love to learn more techniques tho!

    —Susan Burney on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t had the nerves to try appliqué. I think they are beautiful, but without instruction, scary. Thank you so much for the chance to win the tools needed to start. 🙂

    —Jennifer Alexander on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried needle turn – but, though I love the look of it, handwork is not my best friend. I have done some machine applique and love it. Ah, the joyful pictures you can create with applique! I’d love to try a few other forms and I adore everything Kim does. It looks like I’m going to need to get this book!

    —Sherryl W on April 16, 2015
  • I love,love Kim Diehl’s work,and have for years. Can’t believe it since needle turn applique is absolutely my favorite, that I don’t even know what fusion applique is! How did that happen? Did someone sneak that in while I was sleeping one night? Well I guess I’m going to have to get myself educated, and Kim Diehl is sure the one to do it.Thanks Kim for your beautiful work.

    —jan marshall on April 16, 2015
  • I have only done needle turn applique but this book is so inspiring. It has that country feel – fits so well into my house decor

    —lavonne on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto yet. I have tried needle turn but I find it slow going. I like wool the best because you don’t have to turn the edges under. However, not matter which method I use I love the look of applique!!

  • I have not tried trapunto or fusion yet. This book looks amazing!

    I’m sure that I would be inspired to try new methods. Thank you for the chance to win.

    —Brenda on April 16, 2015
  • I did not realize there were 6 different methods of applique. I have done wool and fusible. Needle turn really scares me so I have never tried it. I have never heard of fusion!! Is machine the same as fusible?? I guess I have a lot to learn!!

    —Phyllis Beneditz on April 16, 2015
  • Have yet to try trapunto, but would love to learn all the steps in Kim’s new book.

    —Sharon on April 16, 2015

    —Lynda Johnson on April 16, 2015
  • I have not yet tried wool applique, although I’d really like to. I have done machine trapunto, but never the traditional method where you stuff the shapes through a slit from the back. I’d love the set of fat quarters to use in an upcoming Kim Diehl quilt!

    —Lynn Miller on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto, yet. I just reintroduced myself to applique and it’s on my "to do" list.

  • Needle turn and trapunto I have not yet tried, but they’re definitely on my list. My very first quilt was an applique quilt from the book Quilt Pink. I gave it to my granddaughter for Christmas when she was four.

    —Karen Smith on April 16, 2015
  • My friend has put me to task at applique’ because she knows I am so reluctant. I now have a couple of blocks pinned on and ironed on in a project box awaiting more reading and research. This book looks like just what I need so whether I win or not, this will become a part of my library. I hope it will be gentle on my slow, stubborn mind. Thank you for the opportunity.

Learning here that she uses so many different techniques though makes me want to break through that barrier and enjoy it. I haven’t tried trapunto or fusion yet and would love to learn more of her techniques. Thank you for the chance to win her book!

    Loris Mills on April 16, 2015

    —pauline on April 16, 2015
  • I am looking for the perfect pattern to make a large wall hanging for my newly remodeled kitchen. The designs I love best all have applique so I need to learn this amazing art form. I have tried needle turn and fusible applique and many years ago did a small trapunto project. I am all about learning from a master quilter/artist and who wouldn’t love a huge bundle of fat quarters. I learned to hand quilt from my mother many years ago but consider myself a newbie to some of today’s techniques. Bring on the challenge. Pick me! Pick me:)

    —Kristine on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto, and am not sure what "fusion" applique is! I love Kim’s method of invisible machine applique – it’s a wonderful technique! I also love her fabric lines – I don’t have any yet because I’m trying to "use what I have" – (two daughters’ weddings in less than a year will do that to you!)….thanks for the opportunity to win this great fabric bundle.

    —Darlene B on April 16, 2015

    —Barbara on April 16, 2015
  • I love Kim Diehl’s books and her excellent instructions that she gives in them. I still have not tried trapunto- looks difficult to me. I have done a couple of her applique projects in the past, but would love to try more. Love her choice of colors in her projects – hope to win her latest book and fat quarters.

    carol on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto. I love the dimension it gives so would love to try it. Kim’s quilts are so beautiful. I have appliqued Her pinapple pattern using freezer paper technique from an earlier book. It was so much fun. Winning this prize would be amazing!

    —Angela Little on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried most of the applique methods except Trapunto. I belong to a applique group and we meet once a month. I am always inspired by all the talented women around me. I haven’t done a lot of applique but the small amount that I have done, I have enjoyed and found it very relaxing. I love Kim’s books and would love to receive her new one. I would like to start a project as we have a quilt show this coming year (2016) and I would like to have something to show. Maybe Kim and this new book can inspire me.
    Keep up the great work Kim!!!!

    —Polly M on April 16, 2015
  • I would like to finish a real appliqued quilt …I start out great then really not happy with my results..never looks like the pictures…encouraging comments on modifying the patter…anyway this sounds like something that would give me the push to get it done!

    —Karol on April 16, 2015
  • I guess the real question is which one haven’t I tried!! the only one I’m not familiar with is "fusion" so might have to read the book to learn about that.

    I love Kim Diehl’s work and have many of her designs on the "To Do" list. I’m always open to finding out about the better mousetrap from the experts so this book will have to go on the wish list!

  • I have loved Kim’s work since I started quilting and doing applique. I’ve tried just about all the methods of applique and keep coming back to needle turn. The only method I have never, ever tried is trapunto only because I’ve never come across a pattern for it that really grabbed me. Maybe if I have her new book it will encourage me to finally give it a try!

    —Beth on April 16, 2015
  • I made an applique quilt for my grandson Paxton using the machine applique method. I have since added fusible webbing to my technique and that is the extent of my experience. Applique is a bit intimidating yet beautiful. I have some Sunbonnet Sue that I inherited from a dear aunt and I really need to get busy and at least make a wall hanging. Thank you

    —Denise Cabral on April 16, 2015
  • I have been wanting to learn needle turn applique. I have done fusible and machine. It’s just that I love the look of hand done applique. I love Kim’s work so maybe this is just what I need to get me to take the next step.

    —Cindy on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried needle turn applique nor trapunto and this book is a "Must have" on my list. Am so excited about the patterns and also learning your techniques.

    Jeanne on April 16, 2015
  • I love the quilts shown in your book – absolutely stunning! My sewing machine produces a really nice applique stitch and this is the method I go to whenever I have an applique piece. I would like to try hand applique – I think what is missing is that bit of patience. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Lynn on April 16, 2015
  • I would love to win Kim’s book and fabric so please pick me! 🙂
    I have made several quilts with needleturn applique and one small project with fusible. So I have not done trapunto, machine, wool or fusion. See why I really want to win – I would love to learn these technique’s from Kim’s new book.

    —Sheila Fernkopf on April 16, 2015
  • I discovered Kim when first learning to quilt. Applique if by far my favorite quilt design. I love Kim’s choice of fabrics and colors. I did the applique in the 80’s and put fabric pictures in hoops. At that time I did the zig-zag method. Today I use fusable methods. The rest I haven’t tried but would love to learn!

    —Karen Green on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried fusion applique or wool. I’ve been looking for a simple wool project to try, but fusion? I’ve never even heard of fusion applique! I need to learn it because I LOVE applique!

    —Judy F on April 16, 2015
  • Appliqué was on my bucket list of things to learn this year. I’m trying different techniques and I love the look of trapunto and want to try that method too. Can’t wait to get the book. Sounds like just what I need

    —Stella on April 16, 2015

    —Diane Hicks on April 16, 2015
  • Don’t know if I have the patience for applique as there are so many quilts to make and so little time. But I lust after an applique quilt and it looks like Kim Diehl offers various (faster) ways to applique in this book other than the needle turn method.

    —Anne Wawrzyniak on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto. The feature quilt in Kim’s new book looks like a great opportunity to try trapunto. I have tried a lot of different appliqué methods and I’m really looking forward to Kim’s new book!

I frequently add applique to my projects, but I have not tried trapunto. Always something new to learn. Many thanks, Kim, for a new publication to teach us and inspire us!

    —Hattie Van Dyk on April 16, 2015
  • I have purchased Kim’s books and am currently in the process of try to learn to applique’ the boarder design. Her quilts and designs give me such a peaceful feeling and comfort. Would really enjoy learning more from her latest book. How exciting!

    —Barb Johnson on April 16, 2015
  • I had the pleasure of taking a class with Kim and fell in love with her wool applique method. For cotton and quick quilts I will do fusible with a machine blanket stitch.
    Either way, I’m a fan and can’t wait to get the new book!

  • I have mostly done Fusion applique, but also needle turn… I am just about ready to sew around the appliques on a new quilt using machine applique. I am excited to see how it turns out. Kim does fabulous applique and her new book looks great. I like doing applique when I am sitting and watching TV so I feel like I am accomplishing something. : )

    —Sharilyn on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto applique & it’s been awhile for the others. I used to love needle turn (took on train to work) but was always hesitant about fusible so can’t wait to get your latest book

    —Debbie on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried wool applique yet-have taken courses with Kim and she is a great instructor- looking forward to her new book !!!

    —Karen on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve done fusible appliqué. I once tried needle turned but became too frustrated. I probably didn’t have a good tutorial.

    —Nancy D on April 16, 2015
  • I love the invisible applique I learned from Kim Diehl herself. I would love to learn her other applique methods too. Anything Kim Diehl is great!!! Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Gloria Galiana on April 16, 2015
  • I’m afraid to try needle turn and wool. But Kim’s book sounds like it will take some of the fear out of the process.

    —Kim Brownell on April 16, 2015
  • I have not yet tried wool applique. LOVE the Heritage Hollow collection!!!

    —MARCIA RICHARDSON on April 16, 2015
  • I love Kim’s designs! I have attempted many forms of appliqué even machine but invisible….no! That I have got to learn how to do.

    —Pat Limburg on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried Trupunto yet. I usually do needle turn applique. It is so relaxing! I think that working with wool is my new favorite though.

    —Sally on April 16, 2015
  • There is a lot I haven’t tried! I haven’t done trapunto or wool, I did try needle turn but failed miserably. Thanks for the chance.

    —Sunnybec on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto or wool. I enjoy the other methods but would like to try new ones. I hope I will find a class to teach me those methods.

    —Nicole on April 16, 2015
  • I have done all of the methods listed except MACHINE applique. I love to stitch anything by hand. I am a former cross stitcher (National award) that expanded her world by learning to quilt. My passions have never been the same since. Kim Diehl has been one of my favorite all time designers and her teachings will last me a lifetime.

    —Betty Rhoads on April 16, 2015
  • I agree with Kim that applique brings a certain magic to a quilt. The best method I learned was to use freezer paper with the shiny side up, so the fabric adheres when the seam allowance is pressed over. Thanks to Kim for the inspirational patterns and beautiful fabric.

    —Stella on April 16, 2015
  • I have been quilting over 50 years and have never done applique….these look wonderful…I have always done embroidery and utility quilts to give to family and friends…maybe I could do this for myself..as my 70 birthday approches….

    —connie hagler on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto yet. Still working on my first needleturn applique quilt, started a long, long time ago!

    —Diane on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto, fusion, or wool yet. Obviously I have a lot to learn. Maybe with Kim’s book, applique won’t be so scary.

    Kathy on April 16, 2015
  • I love love love everything Kim Diehl! However, my applique leaves something to be desired… I think this book is just what I need! I have done wool, needle turn, and fusible. Her fabrics are also fabulous!
    Thanks, Susan

    —Susan White on April 16, 2015
  • I would love to win this beautiful fabric. I love to appliqué and work with wool so this book would be wonderful to work thru. I am retired so have the time to do this. Thank you

    —Judy McMaster on April 16, 2015
  • I have never done trapunto, but I love needle-turn. I have many of Kim’s books and love her designs. I’m working on one right now!

    —Judy M on April 16, 2015
  • The form of applique I have never tried is trapunto–I am totally unfamiliar with the technique. Althouh I am generally hot and cold on applique, when I see projects as lovely as the ones in this book, I am ready to try again! I have not been satisfied with outcomes using fusible applique and much prefer the look of needle turn and also working with wool–and I love to have hand work ready to travel in a tote with me. How exciting it would be to start a new applique project with these lovely fabrics!!

    —Marcia Sanders on April 16, 2015
  • I guess I have tried all of the techniques except trapunto. It has always intrigued me but also has scared me. I am certainly not an expert in the other methods and it would be wonderful to have a book that shows great pictures and information on all the methods. The fabrics look beautiful. Thanks for giving us a chance to win both the book and the fabrics.

    —Marge P on April 16, 2015
  • The only method of appliqué that I have not tried is trapunto. And, so far, I haven’t met an appliqué method that I haven’t liked! Kim’s patterns are wonderful Nd I have always liked her choices of fabric. I’m looking forward to seeing her new book!

    —Jan Harris on April 16, 2015
  • Would love to try machine trapunto. Kim’s work is so lovely!

    —Christine P. on April 16, 2015
  • I’m a scardy cat to try any applique other than the fusible and then do machine blanket stitch. I would love to learn some easy techniques. These quilts are spectacular. To will this fabric and the book would be such a lovely addition to my quilt book collection and my stash.

    Thank you for always offering a chance to win a nice gift of fabrics and books.

    —Barbara Dolan on April 16, 2015
  • I have not done much applique at all. I have done some fusible and some machine. That’s it.

    —Regina on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried wool applique as yet, but adding to my things to have a go at.

    —Jenny on April 16, 2015
  • Love applique and Kim Diehl’s colors and patterns. I haven’t tried trapunto, fusion, or wool applique. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Elaine on April 16, 2015

    Carol on April 16, 2015
  • Like many, I love the look of applique, but it seems intimidating. I have done a little bit of some of the methods, but have never tried needle-turn, trapunto, or wool applique.

    —Michele on April 16, 2015
  • The only method I have tried is wool applique and despite my misgivings, I really enjoyed it. I would love to learn more and try all the methods.

    —Beth on April 16, 2015
  • Hi Kim

    I haven’t tried any of your applique methods because I am not confident enough to try. I love the look of applique and have been working up to actually doing a fusible applique on one of my little granddaughters dresses. I would love to win your book and the fat quarters because it would kick start me.

    Regards

    —LaVerne on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried every applique method except trapunto. I really like them all. It depends on the project what applique method I choose.

    —Connie Cameron on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t as yet tried trapunto, I must admit it is one I’d like to try, Applique is my favourite type of quilting.

    —Evie Osborne on April 16, 2015
  • J’adore pratiquer l ‘appliqué traditionnel. J ‘aime particulièrement les patchwork de KimDelh. Carole.

    —Carole on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried any! I’m new to quilting and prefer hand work, too. My sister says I’m crazy!

    —Cynthia Wilbanks on April 16, 2015
  • I have only ever used the needle turn method, and once taught myself machine applique with invisible thread -it actually worked quite well. In the early days, I avoided fusing fabrics as I was not sure what the glue would do over time, and the fused fabric was so solid. Now I know that there are other ways of fusing, so I guess it is time to learn the new ways of applying fabric to fabric.

    Gail G on April 16, 2015
  • Mostly needleturn, old-fashioned! I’ve used some fusible, but I still do my blanket stitch by hand with embroidery floss. I put a hexie lamb on one this year, after it was professionally quilted, and another I did a frog on a lily pad, that I machine quilted myself. The frog was partially fused, so the edge of the lily pad will eventually do a bit of fray, but the rest was needleturned.

    I love the look with the new wools, I have some wool flannel scraps that were given to me I shall have to play with!

    thanks so much

  • Trapunto scares the fire out of me

    —Tina Burlew on April 16, 2015
  • I dearly love anything applique, especially Kim’s country look, and would love to have her book. I have tried the needle turn method but with less than satisfactory results. Have never tried the trapunto method.

    —Dolores on April 16, 2015
  • I have used all the methods listed except perhaps fusion. Without it explained in the post, am not sure what you’re referring to. If it’s using the glue dots, then I’ve used them all. But one can never have too many books or reference guides yo help along the quilting journey.

    —Cindy on April 16, 2015
  • I have several of Kim’s books but I am that INTIMIDATED quilter that longs to Applique. I enjoy browsing the books and always say one day soon I will make a small applique quilt but I never do. So as I read Kim’s article about her recent book I am so excited as it appears this is what I need to jump into the world of Applique. Thank you Kim for this opportunity to win the book along with the fabric.

    —Juanita Williams on April 16, 2015
  • Pretty much all methods of applique are foreign to me. I never thought I had the needle skills to attempt the process, but after several years of trial and error, the machine applique blanket stitch seems to work for me. I have several pieces (orange peel/football) shapes waiting for me to get to it.

    —debra lee on April 16, 2015
  • OMG,THIS NEW BOOK LOOKS GREAT AND THOSE FABRICS ARE ONE IN A MILLION.I REALLY LOVE YOUR THINGS AND HAVE MOST OF YOUR BOOKS. PLEASE KEEP GOING NEVER STOP! YOUR WORK IS JUST WONDERFUL.THANK YOU SO MUCH,FOR BEING YOU.

    susan Bass on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried fusion. I find I love traditional needlepoint applique.

    —Kathy on April 16, 2015
  • I love your style Kim. Kind of coutry, and kind of french. Just beautiful designs. I can’t brag on your style more than I do. I just want to make a quilt as striking as yours!

    —Debby on April 16, 2015
  • Trapunto. I have several of Kim’s books and love the stuff she does. I love the look of appliqué but I need lots of help.The fabric is beautiful.

    Mayme on April 16, 2015
  • i have not tried wool applique. i love applique and add it to every quilt i make. it adds great dimension.

    —JaniceCarole Allen on April 16, 2015
  • I LOVE Kim’s quilt designs! I’ve tried needle-turn, blanket-stitch by hand, fusible, and machine applique. I find applique very relaxing.

    —Mary Douglass on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried Trapunto. I’ve done fused and invisible machine applique and am relatively happy using these methods. Would love to win the book and fabric. Just love Kim’s patterns.

    —Janelle Bucher on April 16, 2015
  • I love applique, but have not tried the wool method because I’m allergic to wool. I prefer cotton and would really appreciate winning these lovely fabrics.

    —Dixie Bell on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried Wool applique or Needle Turn, but I would love to learn. I love the look of Applique Quilts especially Kim’s. The colors and designs are so beautiful.

    —Michelle D on April 16, 2015
  • I have never tried machine applique or fusible. I love wool applique and have used it a lot recently and also I am a big fan of hand applique after basting to paper shapes. An extra step but always great results. I love everything Kim does and have all her books up to this one-can’t wait to get it! Thanks for the chance at the giveaway of the gorgeous Henry Glass fabrics and e-book!

    —Debbie Miller on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto or fusible. I particularly love to applique with wool, and love to see the combination wool and cotton creations. Thanks! Patti

    —Patti Stephens on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried any applique because I am afraid it is too much work. If I win this book and fabric, I would probably be able to do some applique on my quilting projects.

    —beth daniels on April 16, 2015
  • I currently do hand freezer paper applique. I have tried machine applique but as of yet have not got the hang of it so I am looking forward to buying Kim’s new book and learning this method.

    —Shirley Harrison on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried wool applique yet.

    —DebrafromMD on April 16, 2015
  • I didn’t know there were 6 applique methods…I’ve only seen 3!!!! I think I need this book to round out my application education. Love Kim’s work…I’ve got all her other books.

    —Cheryl W on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried Trapunto yet.

    —Lauretta6 on April 16, 2015
  • I have not yet tried trapunto. I do love applique, and Kim is the absolute queen of applique!

    —Barb on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried wool applique yet, but it is on my "to-do" list. Thank you for the giveaway!

    —Vicki Sprain on April 16, 2015
  • i would love to see what all six techniques are. I have done quite a bit of applique but have not yet tried trapunto or wool.

    —Deb C on April 16, 2015
  • As a quilter of about two years, applique is definitely on my list of things to try, but I have been slow to get there as I must admit to being intimidated by the whole process. But, I would love to learn, and I think Kim’s creations are just beautiful!
    Pat

    —Pat Shirani on April 16, 2015
  • I love the look of applique with the scenes and pictures you can create with it. So far I’ve just used machine applique and now I need the challenge of new techniques. This is just the book to fill my need.

    —Loretta D on April 16, 2015
  • I have done a bit of hand applique, but it’s not my favorite! Although the extra time I took to make my stitches nearly invisible was well worth it. Machine applique is so much faster, but I think the invisible hand stitching looks so much nicer. Maybe I need to learn better methods!

    —Yvonne J on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried wool applique yet. Thanks!

    —Delaine on April 16, 2015
  • I have yet to try needle turn, trapunto, fusion, wool. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Marilyn S on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve tried them all, at one time or another. Needleturn gives me the best results, but the speed of the machine is appealing. I need to improve in that area. Love Kim’s designs.

    —Mona on April 16, 2015
  • I would love to try the freezer paper & glue techniques. I enjoy applique very much.

    Barb Beason on April 16, 2015
  • Kim is my favorite applique artist. I love her work and can’t get enough of her books and patterns. I have tried all the applique techniques that you have listed and it’s hard to pick a favorite, it all depends on the project itself. My newest passion is working with wool applique. Having a pieced cotton background and placing vines of rick rack and flowers and leaves of wool seem to make any design pop. The fabric in the giveaway is beautiful and would love to win this wonderful prize.

    —connie b on April 16, 2015
  • I have done any applique work in Wool yet. I bought a scrap bundle and will probably "cosy up" with it next Winter.

    Thanks, Pam

    —Pam Fritz on April 16, 2015
  • I am new to quilting. I have not tried appliqué and now with this book I will have a terrific foundation to learn. Also, it will be a terrific reference material. Your work is beautiful. My work will be basic and most likely for my granddaughter. Thank you

    —Ann on April 16, 2015
  • Love these patterns i.m not too good at applique so i hope these will helpme

    —barbara mitchell on April 16, 2015
  • Well, due to eyesight & arthritis, I won’t be doing any needleturn, so that’s off my list, but I’d love to try some wool and trapunto…and fusion – what’s fusion? And how is that different from fusible? Oh gosh, I hope I win that book and fabric bundle, then all my questions will be answered and I’d love to learn how to improve my work! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Karin on April 16, 2015
  • I love the look of understandable instructions. This is what I need to get started.

    Linda on April 16, 2015
  • Kim – I must love your work as I’ve gotten ALL your books so far – every last one! LOVE the fabrics you use and the designs are just so eye-appealing. Catching up on numerous other projects so have not done any of yours as yet. I am trying my first wool applique onto cotton and finding it wonderful to work on. Have done two other hand applique projects and several machine applique ones – the hand ones I use the freezer paper method and have been very satisfied with working that way. Would mostly love some directions to learn needle turn applique – other quilting friends who do hand applique mostly use that and they all swear by that method! Have also seen a tutorial you did and it explained a LOT. Thanks for offering the new book PLUS the fabric pack – what a nice bonus!

    —Sylvia Bryan on April 16, 2015
  • Oh what a great new book … I think, I love it … 🙂
    And I never triedt the needle turn methode … but I like to learn it …
    So … let me win …. big lough ….

    —Elaine on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried machine trapunto.

    —marlene on April 16, 2015
  • It is easier for me to say what I have done and that is just rough edge machine applique. I would love to learn how to do the other appliques. Great giveaway.

    —Cindy Garaas on April 16, 2015
  • I have only tried machine appliqué but I am someday going to try needle turn appliqué. I would love a copy of the book.

    —Karen W on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve never done fusion or trapunto, don’t even know what they are. I’ve done needle turned but not very good. I just can’t do the smaller pieces. I could definitely use some help.

    —K on April 16, 2015
  • Love Kim Diehl, have all her books. I do needle turn applique and also love to work with wool. Who wouldn’t want to win some lovely fabric.

    —Kathryn Rogers on April 16, 2015
  • I have only tried needle turn applique and that was thirty years ago. After reading the tip to fatten out, etc. to make the pieces more doable, I think I’m ready to try applique again. Thank you!

    —JoAnne T. on April 16, 2015
  • I have bought Many patterns for wool appliqué and supplies. I need to learn that and better techniques for my hand appliqué. I love this new book. Thanks for writing it!

    —Janet Blackwell-Fidler on April 16, 2015
  • I love anything that Kim does and would love to win this giveaway! I haven’t tried fusion and trapunto methods and my invisible methods don’t look so great. I need to practice Kim’s method.

    —Gloria on April 16, 2015
  • I love applique and I usually do fusible with a hand buttonhole stitch around it. It is so relaxing for me while I watch TV. I have done a little wool applique but love the look of it. Kim’s patterns are beautiful, I wish I could make them all! Thanks for a chance to win in the giveaway!

    Marsha B on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried machine applique yet. I’m hoping instructions will get me over my fear that it will turn out wrong.

    —Debbie on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve never tried trapunto!

    —Ashley on April 16, 2015
  • Trapunto is something I’ve not tried yet, but I know if Kim teaches it, she’s got the easiest and best way figured out for doing it. I took a class with Kim last summer and am thrilled with the results I’ve gotten with her freezer paper and machine applique techniques. I’m eager to learn more!

    —Terry on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve only done needle turn applique since I love to do hand stitching. I find it relaxing and therapeutic , while machine sewing just frustrates me. Sometimes current applique patterns are too complex, and meant for fusible appliqué, but it looks as if Kim’s patterns are just right for a needle turn appliquer.

    —Mary Kay on April 16, 2015
  • It looks like another beautiful book from Kim. I just love her books. I have only used needleturn applique… I haven’t been confident enough to try machine or fusion yet.. a how-to book like this might just help me.

    —Lyn on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried trapunto or wool yet.

    —Janice on April 16, 2015
  • I prefer stitching by machine for everything and will even do a fake trapunto by machine.Since trapunto is by far my favourite look, I will even do it by hand though. I would love to learn different applique methods of the types I already do, and I’d also love to learn other methods. Sounds like a great book & beautiful selection.

    —Bren on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried appliqué yet. It looks so difficult so I am hesitant to start. Winning this book will be a be help in getting me started with the proper technique(s) and advice from a leader in the field of appliqué. Hope I win.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this book.

    —Leah on April 16, 2015
  • Like Kim, I love applique work and think it adds so much to a quilt’s beauty. I have not done machine applique yet, but would like to give it a try. To me hand applique is so relaxing and pretty that I haven’t felt the need to do it by machine.

    —Carol Edison on April 16, 2015
  • Applique is growing on me as I venture into new quilting territory. Trapunto is the quilting method I have not tried yet!! I love the look, but am not sure how to get my work to look as lovely as the "pictures".

    Karen on April 16, 2015
  • Machine and hand not very good

    —Becky Whitehead on April 16, 2015
  • I have always been afraid of applique. I have done just a bit of machine applique and it turns out ok but they are large pieces. I love the country colors and would love to try some hand work. It’s like a fabric puzzle.

    —Susan Robbins on April 16, 2015
  • I don’t know what fusion is nor have I tried trapunto. I don’t like fusible mostly because I do not like the blanket stitches my machine has, so is that a reason to buy another machine????? Hard to justify that! Love all of Kim’s books (most pages bookmarked to make ‘someday’)
    Jenny in PA

    —Jennifer on April 16, 2015
  • I think it would be simpler to tell you that the ONLY applique I’ve tried has been by machine! I have hand-sewn patches onto boy scout uniforms and added embellishments to some Christmas stockings… but, basically, applique is a whole new world to me!

    —Kathleen Dalecio on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried machine trapunto or fusion I guess since I don’t know what fusion is! 🙂 I really like machine applique with freezer paper. Thank you for sponsoring the giveaway. I’ve taken a couple of classes from Kim, but I’d love, love, love to have that book.

    —paula dalby on April 16, 2015
  • My needleturn skills are really "rusty". I haven’t tried them for quilt a while. I’d love to have an up to date review of all of my applique’ skills. this book and the fabrics would be a great birthday present today.

    —Jerry Church on April 16, 2015

    —Nancy on April 16, 2015
  • I am hand sewing a wool applique quilt. I have done needle-turn, but not for a long time. But, I have not tried: trapunto, fusion, fusible or machine. Would like to try when I get the chance. Thank you, peterstankovich@comcast.net

    —Danette on April 16, 2015
  • I have just recently tried "turn needle" have not tried the others yet. It is so relaxing to sit and hand sew on your project but need to bone up on different ways to applique. Thank you for taking time and producing you books and a chance to win fabric and your book!

    Tanya Phinney on April 16, 2015
  • I am currently working on applique with one of Kim’s Simple whatknots. I learned trapunto years ago in a beginners class and it was fun. Fusion applique is new to me. I’m curious as to what it is.

    —Donna B on April 16, 2015

    —Barbara Ruland on April 16, 2015
  • I have tried fusible applique and enjoyed doing so. Have thought about doing different applique but haven’t got the nerve to do so yet. Would love to have this book to learn new methods, the fabric would be a great addition.

    —Dianna on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t really done much except machine applique. I just ordered a BOM kit to try wool applique. Hoping to learn this beautiful technique. The machine trapunto is amazing and I am sure that is something I would enjoy doing as well. Would love to be awarded a free chance to learn it all.

    —Karen Migliaccio on April 16, 2015
  • I have been trying to get my nerve up to do some applique. I think this book just might move me forward. I love Kim’s patterns and work.

    —Quilting Tangent on April 16, 2015
  • I love needleturn!!! I guess I am old fashioned but I am not oppose to fusible and use that method also. I will be trying the freezer paper method soon. I haven’t tried trapunto or fusion for I really don’t know much about the methods but I am willing to find out! Thank you for the giveaway as I love Kim’s books!

I heard and saw some of these fabrics recently through Missouri Star Quilt Co. Love the fabrics shown and think they are pretty awesome in Kim’s designs. Thanks for sharing and inspiring me to get back into appliqué. Sincerely Beverly.

    —Alison on April 16, 2015

    —Linda Hord on April 16, 2015

    —Marilynn Hagan on April 16, 2015
  • I love wool appliqué! I have done quite a bit of fusible appliqué and just a taste of needle turn (hard for me)! I have not tried the others. Wool is my favorite at the moment because I love hand stitching the buttonhole stitch around the shapes. I am newly retired so the giveaway would be awesome! I don’t have much of a stash; so fabric would be beyond wonderful!! And any book by Kim is fabulous! Thanks for having this giveaway. Crossing my fingers that my entry is chosen.

    Have a blessed day – Vicki

    —Jenny lloyd on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried trapunto. Many ( too many to count) years ago, I tried hand applique. At that time, my teacher had us use a hoop. Ugh! Too bulky to drop in my then single girl, tiny purse. I tried again a few years ago, but had an awful time getting my pints to look acceptable. I really want to be able to conquer my applique stress outs!

I have ordered the e-book version to guide me through .. but I would love the hardcopy version. The fabrics are "to die for".

    —Lesley Miller on April 16, 2015

I have bought wool for wool applique several years ago, unfortunately I have not tried it yet, this book would be an exceptional reason to try. Even winning fabric is an awesome bonus to the book. Hopefully I win, I enter every contest I run across, I have yet to win. Someday I will, after all someone has to win. Thank you for the opportunity and congratulations to the winner.

  • I haven’t tried anything but fusible, but I’d sure like to! I enjoy fusible, but it’s fun to learn new techniques.

    —Judy S on April 16, 2015
  • I’ve attempted machine applique but have never been happy with the results.

    I’m a bit of a throw-back and love doing everything by hand but I’ve realised that quilts for babies, especially those that have blanket stitched applique, are easily damaged; I caught one of the stitches in my watch and had a few minutes of panic before I was able to slacken off the pulled stitches and flatten out the drawn thread!

    It would be so good to have a step-by-step guide to getting it right!

    —Kayt Deans on April 16, 2015
  • I have not tried needle turn applique, but would love to learn the technique. Looking forward to the book!

    —Sharon Pack on April 16, 2015
  • I haven’t tried fusion, as I worry about the edges fraying. I tried a sample of trapunto years ago, so I think that should also be added to the list. The book looks fantastic.

    Thank you, Kim! Loved your visit to our guild last year!

    —Angela S on April 17, 2015
  • Only after piecing one of Kim’s designs have I tried any applique method. I am working on the last few applique pieces and could have used this book for more instruction. After a lot of trial and error I used a fusion method for this project. I am excited to try some of the other methods.

    —Thelma Crape on April 17, 2015
  • I haven’t done machine, trapunto or wool. I have used fusion, freezer paper and needle turn. I don’t know what you would call machine stitching around a shape with right side in toward a light stabilizer, putting a slit in the stabilizer and turning it (I did it with blue jean bears for a baby quilt.) but I liked the way they turned out.

  • I have not done any traputo yet

    —Bunny on April 17, 2015

    —Nolene on April 17, 2015
  • I’ve only done needle turn and reverse applique…and not a whole lot but I love the look of applique! Wool I think would become a passion if I could find the right kit and beginner’s tips. I LOVE that blossom runner in the picture above….my first project if I win that bundle and book! 🙂

    —Shelley C on April 17, 2015
  • Most of the time I do fusible appliqué, but I’ve had success with the interfacing technique and with wool appliqué. I absolutely love Kim’s books and patterns and own all of her previous books.i can’t wait to get this one for my library. I need to try her freezer paper method and trapunto. Unfortunately, my hand stitching leaves a lot to be desired, so I’m apprehensive about needle turn!

Quilt shops are too far to go to unless we go for most of the day. LOVE Kim’s designs, fabrics and how prolific she is. I prize the books I have of hers. Thanks for having this give-a-way, but I have never won anything before, I’ll keep trying.

    —Norma on April 17, 2015
  • Thank you for the tutorial. I haven’t tried any applique yet but your post makes it less intimidating!

  • Haven’t tried fusion – not sure what it is…nor trapunto.

    —Rosalie on April 17, 2015

    —Jeanenne Nielsen on April 17, 2015

    —Judy Molnar on April 17, 2015
  • Trapunto

    —Sharon on April 17, 2015
  • I am just now learning how to machine applique. In the article above, I appreciated the "tip" about fitting your skill level by modifying a pattern piece for the level of skill. This tip helps the quilter have a successful experience and want to continue with applique.

  • I have not done wool applique because I am allergic to wool. I love Kim’s method for applique and was fortunate enough to attend one of her work shops to learn her method. I love all of her quilts and wish I was a faster quilter so I could make all of them. I will be adding her book to my collection since a refresher of her method is always helpful when starting a new project.

  • I’ve done needle turn, wool, fusible, and machine, but not trapunto or fusion. To be honest I didn’t like fusible because I had to pre ‘glue" my fabric before I could choose out the design. I prefer finding a color and going with it! I’d like to do reverse applique too, but have never been instructed in it! A guide like this book wouls be wonderful!

    —Polly on April 17, 2015
  • I gave done some appliqué and enjoyed it. It’s very relaxing! I did the needle turn and have become interested in machine appliqué as well. This Kim Diehl pattern looks really nice!

  • Hi,
    I have not tried needle turned applique, trapunto or fusion. In fact I have never even heard of "fusion" applique! I love the look of applique and seem to always love those quilts the most! It can make the most simple center into a really stunning quilt! I have most of your books because you sense of color inspires me as much as the applique. Thanks for all you do!

As I am a senior on social securtiy, I would love to win that fabric!! I took it up my self to make quilts for all my family members for Christmas this year. That’s 23 quilts for adults, teens, children, and toddlers. I have 8 tops done and 3 toddlers quilts finished. What was I thinking??? lol So I haven’t tried any of the methods yet, but tonight I have put my appliques on with spray adhesive and am going to do a decorative stitch around them with my new sewing machine.

  • It is all new to me, but while I was reading the post all I could think about I can do this.

    —Jo-Anne Hearns-Petican on April 17, 2015
  • I absolutely adore the "A" word. I have always admired it from a distance – tho recently it became forced fun to cover a serious mistake with a set of pinking shears. I only refer to it as "forced fun" because I have never learned it. While my applique design turned out to be the "wow" factor to an already gorgeous piece, I am terrified I will mess it up. It is currently fused with 606 spray to hold in place. What to do next…?

    I love the look of the scrappy applique and trapunto. Wool would be just as awesome.

    I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have this book. So pick me! Please! 🙂

    —Celia on April 17, 2015
  • All my quilts have some applique in them. I particularly like borders with binding and leaves and flowers. I use needle turn applique and sometimes machine. I particularly love using wool. Wool is so forgiving. I have several of Kim,s books and made several of her patterns

    —Penny on April 18, 2015

    —Lorraine Robertson on April 19, 2015

    —Linda on April 19, 2015
  • I have never appliqued though I have all the Kim Diehl books. I sit and look at all the beautiful quilts with applique and wish I could do that. This prize would give me the chance to try out her techniques. I am always concerned I am going to mess it up and fabric is expensive. If I won this prize, I would try all the techniques and post my results for everyone to see.

    —Sheri Klouda on April 19, 2015
  • I’ve used turn appliqué and machine appliqué. The turn method took more time but the finished design was beautiful. I would say of the 2 methods I’ve used I like the machine appliqué. I love Kim’s books/patterns, they give me hours of enjoyment thumbing through the books and working on the projects. A couple of my quilting friends and I are attending the Year 2 Kim Diehl class and love it!

    —Yvonne on April 19, 2015

I bought all the fabric and the pattern to make a Christmas quilt, messed up some of the fabric and now the quilt store is closed! I will just have to compromise.Anyway I love the look of all applica.The quilts you show in the email I got are amazing. I would love to learn how to make such beautiful quilts. Thank you, Sandra

    —Suzzanne Nelson on April 20, 2015

    —Pearl on April 20, 2015
  • I’d love the book and fabrics to learn the 6 techniques for applique as I haven’t tried any of them. I’ve always avoided applique as I haven’t the courage to try it! But, I’d love the chance to learn and add a whole new dimension to my quilts.

  • So far not much applique, have taken mini-class needleturn and really want to do something with wool. I like handwork but for time it seems it’s always back to the machine. Thanks for her tip "Fit Your Skill Level"–need to have permission and reminded we can "work it out".
    Cheers
    Carol

    —Carol on April 20, 2015
  • Hi, Kim! I haven’t tried the trapunto or wool applique yet. I love the look of trapunto and plan to give it a try soon. The luscious colors of the wools are to die for! Since they are so pricey, I will probably do just a one block wall hanging to try the wool applique. Look forward to seeing your new book!!

    —Roni Dea Howery on April 21, 2015
  • I also love applique (by hand) and have taken several classes over the years and tried every method. My favorite is needle turn except that I use a wet, flat toothpick. It grabs the fabric nicely and you can make your curves really smooth. I recently made a challenging block on Mrs. Lincoln’s Quilt (Lori Smith’s pattern). For that block it was the first time I every traced the pattern on the background and used that for a guide. Not my favorite method but my block came out perfect, better than anyone else’s block in the class. I love all Kim’s quilts and books. I made her scrappy courthouse steps quilt last year. It is huge and on my bed now, actually one of my favorites.

    —Donnamarie on April 21, 2015
  • I’ve never done any trapunto applique, but after reading the article, I’m anxious to try it. Always a fan of Kim’s designs and pattern. Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I am currently working on a Kim Diehl Pattern, a table runner that I have hand pieced and hand appliqued.I have used a few different methods to applique; needle turn, back basting, templates as some shapes require different methods. All the piecing and applique has been completed. I am now in the process of hand quilting it. Hoping to win a ribbon in my quild’s next quilt show with this piece. Everything about it is appealing and Kim’s color palette is spectacular. And this one is for me!

  • I have done fusible applique on many occasions but have never tried needle turn. This is one I want to try, I am just a little nervous about it. I may have to invest in this new book to guide me. Thanks for the opportunity

  • I have not tried trapunto or fusion applique just like most everyone who have posted a comment. Kim’s Applique book is fantastic. I ordered it as soon as I saw it. I would love to win another to give to my friend but the material I will be selfish and keep. So beautiful are her designs and colors.

  • I’d love to learn trapunto!

  • I haven’t tried trapunto yet, and I’m not sure what fusion is, but I love trying new methods of applique. And Kim’s applique book looks just as great as all her others.

  • Kim, I love all you books and own them all. I have not yet tried needle turn applique but am looking forward to learning how with your latest book. Thanks for all your hard work! I have just completed your first "Simple Whatnots" club and start the second group next week. Thanks again!

  • Machine applique is the only technique I have tried. Would love to try the rest!

  • Trapunto is one of the methods I have not yet tried. It is on my list though. Perhaps this book will give me the boost I need to do it.

  • I have really only used needle turn with cotton fabrics. I do use blanket stitch when I applique felted wool.
    I have done some fusible applique, with raw edge, but they sit in my UFO pile because I don’t want to leave them that way.
    This book looks great! Maybe will finally boost me to try another method. I love your quilts which combine piecing and applique.
    I also have some of your fabrics. It would be a thrill to win more. and I am glad our local stores are finally carrying them.

  • I’ve never tried trapunto, fusion, or wool. Though the one time I tried needle turn it left a lot to be desired. This book is going on my wish list.

  • All of the above. I haven’t tried applique yet.

  • I have not tried any applique. Kim’s work makes me want to try all the methods. Her work is amazing! I just love her ideas and designs!
