Kim Diehl quilt-along coming soon – get the details and join the fun!

Kim Diehl’s created a very special (and pretty!) mystery for you to solve. In stitches!

She’s hosting a mystery quilt-along based on her second book with Jo Morton, Simple Friendships II. Why? Because Kim’s celebrating nearly 25,000 followers on Instagram! (If you haven’t seen her Instagram feed, visit it now—get ready to swoon.)

Simple Friendships II Stitch-Along Mystery Sampler

Each week for five weeks, Kim will walk you through making the blocks needed to complete the mystery mini quilt, featuring blocks from Simple Friendships II. The finished quilt size is 17½" x 20½" and can be stitched from your stash of scraps (or, of course, you can shop for new fabric!). We’ve seen the final quilt, and we promise, you won’t be disappointed!

Commit to just five weeks to complete your quilt—quick, quick, lickety-split!

If you want to join, follow these steps to prepare:

  1. Simple Friendships IIGet your copy of Simple Friendships 2—you’ll need it for the block-pattern instructions. You can purchase a copy at your local quilt shop or wherever books are sold.
  1. Gather your fabrics! Kim’s mystery quilt is small and scrappy, making it perfect for your fabric stash. Kim will post a photo of her blocks each week to give you a visual guide, but there are no rules here—choose your favorite colors and prints and sew along!
  1. Get ready to sew starting Monday, May 13. Kim will post  new blocks to sew every Monday at 6:00 am (MST) for five weeks. The final week begins June 10.

Whenever you need to check in or get more information about the QAL, head to—bookmark the page to keep track and keep up! And be sure to use the hashtag #SimpleFriendships2QAL when you post about your progress on Facebook and Instagram so we can see and share. Four random participants will receive prizes from Kim, Martingale, and our friends at Henry Glass Fabrics!
