    —Barbara Morse on June 1, 2022
  • Love that slightly tipsy quilt – reflects my true nature! LOL

    —Ali on June 1, 2022
  • I would make them all. However, I think my favorites are Village Square and Mindnight!

    —Cammy C on June 1, 2022
  • I love Kim Diehl’s fabrics and patterns. My favorite in the new book is Wind Spinner which uses my favorite block, flying geese.

    —Sherrill L Ash on June 1, 2022
  • I love all Kim Diehl’s designs but the Village Square is my first pick.

    —Nancy Lewis on June 1, 2022
  • I love all of Kim Diehl’s quilts, but probably my favorite in Simple Whatnots III is This and That.

    —Debbie Smitley on June 1, 2022
  • Simple Whatnots quilts are great to have around the house. I would sew This and That. I love the little basket on it. Thank you.

    Danette Stankovich on June 1, 2022
  • I found Autumn Tapestry to be intriguing and would love to make that one first. The books has so many wonderful patterns!

    —Jane Beinke on June 1, 2022
  • So many to choose from but I like Apple Baskets. I made a Christmas quilt with several basket designs. Apple Baskets would complement the larger quilt.

    —Audie Nelson on June 1, 2022
  • I love all the "littles" quilts, wall hangings & pin cushion in Simple Whatnots III. It is so hard to pick a favorites and several are spot on, but Cross Purposes caught my eye especially since there are no seams to match and scraps are used to make this adorable little quilt. Kim is so generous in her tips and creates magic in her quilting!

    —Marge Ehlers on June 1, 2022
  • Love the new WhatNots III book and Kim Diehl does not disappoint. My favorite is Autumn Tapestry. I like invisible machine applique and look forward to seeing Kim’s technique. I am sure her tips and tricks will be just what I need.

    —Theresa Kennedy on June 1, 2022
  • I just watched the Simple Whatnots III video – what a wealth of projects! I really liked the Autumn Tapestry quilt – those applique curved blocks are darling. The Slightly Tipsy quilt also uses curvy blocks in a unique setting. I will be buying the book just to see how she does those two quilts.

    —SUSAN PUTMAN on June 1, 2022
  • I love star quilts and the colors in Midnight are beautiful! It looks like a great book!

    —Susan L Stanton on June 1, 2022
  • Every quilt in Simple Whatnots III are lovely. I have been starting to make smaller quits to help decorate my bare walls in my house. Plus we have enough lap and bed quilts(or so I have been told!)I love the variety of patterns and that there is a mix of piecing and applique. Autumn Tapestry has wonderful mix of the two and looks like a lot of fun to put together.

    —Joy Meetis on June 1, 2022
  • Ooh! The Midnight quilt is gorgeous!!!

    —Cathy B. on June 1, 2022
  • Love Kim’s patterns. I love Charm school to start.

    Jocelyn on June 1, 2022
  • There are a bunch that I want to do but I like the last one with the wool applique!

    —Christine Romero on June 1, 2022
  • I would make Ribbon Candy. The design just appeals to me.

    —Rita Shores on June 1, 2022
  • Hard to choose but there are three that I really, really like. They are the Farmers Market, Charm School, Midnight, and Autumn Tapestry. Oh, my, that is four quilts. All are wonderful.

    —Nancy Parrish on June 1, 2022
  • Since I live in the woods, I would love to make the Autumn Tapestry quilt. It would be perfect for my family room.

    —Patricia Wojciechowski on June 1, 2022
  • If I could pick a project from Kim’s book to make right now, it would be Village Square. Alas, it will have to be on hold until I get my current project finished. But if I sew fast, I’ll be ready in a day or two! Beautiful book and I just adore all of Kim’ brilliant ideas.

    —Joyce on June 1, 2022
  • My favorites are Wind Spinner and Autumn Tapestry. Love them all!

    —Liz Saum on June 1, 2022
  • I love all the projects in Kim’s new book. It is hard to pick my favorite! I think Autumn Tapestry wins the prize today!

    —Cathi Lafitte on June 1, 2022
  • My favorites are Wind Spinner and Autumn Tapestry. Kim Diehl is one of my favorite quilt designers!

    —Liz Saum on June 1, 2022
  • I love them all but Village Square is my favorite!

    —Susan Griffith on June 1, 2022
  • I snapped pictures of at least 5 quilts while watching the YouTube video!! So many neat projects! Frugal Farm Wife grabbed my attention for sure. I love the simplicity of it, yet I found it striking. Autopilot will also be in my future!

    —Jill Klop on June 1, 2022
  • I think I’ll make a couple of ribbon candy quilts; but I do love Midnight too.

    —Linda N on June 1, 2022
  • I had several "favorites". I really liked Village Square! All the quilts in this book are beautiful!

    —Linda on June 1, 2022
  • I am really torn between Farmers Market and Autumn Tapestry. I would make every quilt in this book because I love Kim’s style and I love making smaller quilts to use around the house. Also pincushions…oh my, I am always making them and use them and give as gifts.

    —Ferne Tworek on June 1, 2022
  • I would make the Windswept Pincushion first so I would have such a pretty place to put all the pins for the rest of the projects in the book!

    —Terry Terrell on June 1, 2022
  • I always have several choices but think my first would be Wind Spinner. Looks like another great book for my library.

    —Linda Witt on June 1, 2022
  • I love Slightly Tipsy

    —Beth Corell on June 1, 2022
  • Love the Midnight quilt!

    —marsha on June 1, 2022
  • My favorite and first project to make from this book would be a toss up between CHARM SCHOOL & WIND TRIPPER. But all are enticing!

    —Yolanda Cypher on June 1, 2022
  • Hard to decide: I will choose slightly tipsy and Village Square

    —Cristina M T Scarfon on June 1, 2022
  • I love the Farmers Market. Growing up on the farm was filled with lots of garden produce and the colors in this quilt remind me of summer days picking vegetables

    —Freda Hocking on June 1, 2022
  • So many pretty choices! Love Charm School, Apple Basket and Midnight, but I think I’d start with the Wind Swept Pin Cushion. Excited to start all of them!

    —Debra Sawchak on June 1, 2022
  • How can you choose a favorite!! Definitely Apple Basket or Making Waves. Now to pull my fabric for the Mystery!!

    Chris Behme on June 1, 2022
  • Since I still work full-time, I tend to choose projects that I can actually finish. I’d make Kim’s Wind Spinner first!

    —Donna V. on June 1, 2022
  • To pick a favorite would be super hard for me as I really liked them all. They were simple but elegant of bygone eras. I would close my eyes and just let the book open, that is my first pattern to be made from the book.

    —Milly Fessler on June 1, 2022
  • Hard to choose between Farmers Market and Midnight. Will have to look at stash and then decide.

    —Rosalie on June 1, 2022
  • Windspinner and Village Square are the two that speak to me with their flying geese and churn dash blocks, which are my favorite. Actually each project is lovely! Love anything of Kim’s. I’m anxious to read her tips too as I become disappointed and frustrated when points and such don’t match.

    —Corinne on June 1, 2022
  • It is soooo hard to pick one. As soon as I hear the name Kim Diehl, it’s as if I were 6 again and you said we were going to Disneyland! I do love Midnight (the colors are gorgeous together), Village Square (love the appliqué border), and Slightly Tipsy for starters!

    —Janet T on June 1, 2022
  • Oh my! I want to make alllll the projects in this book!
    The first one I’d make is This ‘n That as I love the variety of blocks used and it’s so eye-catching. Quilted projects that make my eye roam all over are always a favorite.

    —Kathy E. on June 1, 2022
  • This is the first quilting book I’ve ever seen where I want to make EVERY one of them! I think I’ll start with October Sunset…

    —Donna on June 1, 2022
  • I love them all! However, top of the list would be Slightly Tipsy, Charm School or Apple Baskets. So hard to decide.

    —Laura Jacobs on June 1, 2022
  • This is tough choosing! But I’ll go with Midnight…or tipsy…or autumn tapestry! Thanks for this chance!

    —Tracey on June 1, 2022
  • Twirly Gigs is super cute!

    —Janice V on June 1, 2022
  • I really like all of them….Love the charm school, village square and the midnight…the pin cushion is cute…

    —CYNTHIA M VARDELL on June 1, 2022
  • It is difficult to choose a favorite but I really loved ‘Woven Stars’. I love
    the fall look with the cheddar colored fabrics. But I also loved the cute pin
    cushion. Any of the beautiful projects would be a joy to have in my home.

    —Rebecca on June 1, 2022
  • I’ll choose Midnight for the win but the appliqué on Village Square was delightful!

    —Carolyn on June 1, 2022
  • Too hard to choose! Love them all.

    —Anne on June 1, 2022
  • Wow – I LOVE the pincushion, October Sunset, Village Square, Woven Stars – they are all great. I liked so many I would have to make them all!

    —Kresti A. Lyddon on June 1, 2022
  • My first choice would be Village Square.

    —THERESA WESTRUP on June 1, 2022
  • I love everything that Kim Diehl does but I love the simple look of Charm School.

    —Sharon Browne on June 1, 2022
  • Baskets and stars make my heart sing and Kim makes it hard to choose which quilt to make first…think I’ll go with Midnight. Thank you for all the tips included in your books.

    Becky on June 1, 2022
  • I was happy to see a little pin cushion included. I’m going there first! Super cute and easy to complete without a big commitment during the busy summer months.

    —Donna on June 1, 2022
  • I love all of the little quilts but Slightly Tipsy is my favorite!

    —Karen Martin on June 1, 2022
  • I absolutely love all things Stars! Definitely going to make Midnight

    —Brenda V Denton on June 1, 2022
  • Slightly Tipsy is my favorite–so cute. Village Square and Apple Baskets are also very appealing.

    —Lisa J. on June 1, 2022
  • I had just read an article on the benefits of crows and how to attract them. They like shiny things. I was immediately taken with October Sunset and thought I’d scatter some shiny things on the quilt!

    —Michelle Henderson on June 1, 2022
  • Kim has hit it out of the park once again. Every one of the quilts in the new book have their own special personality and joy. If I have to pick one, it would have to be wind spinner. Her composition of color and sizes made from simple flying geese is spectacular.

    —Kim Sauerwald on June 1, 2022
  • I LOVE the "Petite Sampler" simply because it has a lot of blue in it and I absolutely adore Kim Diehl’s blues. No one else has a color quite the same and when it you use it in something, it absolutely POPS!!!! I know I’ll never do a sampler quilt (much as I’d like to – but I’m older, still work parttime and I am a full-time caregiver to disabled spouse) so a sampler quilt would be perfect!! But I’d have a really hard time – the blues also pop in that one (can’t remember the name) where she uses flying goose

    —Geri Alper on June 1, 2022
  • Village Square is a must, but they are all fantastic!

    —Jean A Schneider on June 1, 2022
  • Autumn Tapestry would be the first quilt I make. But there are so many others Slightly Tipsy, Woven Star. Kim has done it again and I can’t wait to get started.

    —Tiffany Carr on June 1, 2022
  • What delightful quilts in such warm and welcoming colors. I think Village Square is my favorite – those little churn dashes are so cute. I will definitely be looking for this book!

    —Janet on June 1, 2022
  • I’m do excited to make all the patterns in the new Simple Whatnots 3 book. My first quilt from Kim’s new book is OCTOBER SUNSET. i really like mixing wool with traditional applique.
    Happy Quilting
    Nancy Kline

    —Nancy Kline on June 1, 2022
  • Love everything Kim Diehl, her fabrics and her patterns! Her Simple What Not Book III is just as fun as her other 2 books! Especially loved the Whirlygig runner and Village Square, the appliqued birds makes that quilt! And my very favorite is October Sunset, such a darling little quilt! Thanks for sharing this fun book!

    —Carmen Montmarquet on June 1, 2022
  • Too hard to choose which ONE is my favorite, sew, I picked my top three I really really like and want to make: Charm School, Farmer’s Market and Woven Stars. Would love to get this book added to my quilt library. Kim has another great book!

    —ChristieB on June 1, 2022
  • My favorite quilt pattern is Wind Spinner.

    —Jackie Wisherd on June 1, 2022
  • It is hard to make a choice but I think I would start with Farmers’ Market or Frugal Farm Wife. Cross Purposes would serve as a necessary item as well to tidy up the scrap buckets. Thanks for sharing.

    —Audrey Neufeld on June 1, 2022
  • Being fairly new to quilting,with still shaky skills and not much of a scrap pile,I should choose simple designs. But I love a challenge and this book has so many opportunities for learning by doing. Apple baskets appeal to me for a first project with village square on the docket next. These designs are small enough so that I could try them all!

    —Martha Merriam on June 1, 2022
  • Love all things Kim. I might start with Wind Spinner or Ribbon Candy… and then move on from there. I’d really like to learn about her binding technique as well.

    —Sherryl Wynne on June 1, 2022
  • WOW! They are all lovely. I would start with This And That Sampler. I’ve followed Kim Diehl for many years. The first of her projects I made was in 2002.

    —Karen on June 1, 2022
  • I love all things Kim Diehl, her fabrics and patterns are spectacular and I am looking forward to Simple whatnots 3. I have complete many whatnots clubs. From whatnots 3 I love all the small quilts but really want to complete "Village Square"!

    —Linda Bakuska on June 1, 2022
  • I’m zeroing in on This & That quilt pattern idea. It is a clever name for a quilt also.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on June 1, 2022
  • Pint Size=:) Can’t wait to make it!

    —Annie Bartus on June 1, 2022
  • I liked the Frugal Farmwife and its makedo blocks. I have several quilts that my grandmother made that have blocks that she pieced together when she ran out of fabric. This quilt reminds me of her.

    —Nancy M Ballard on June 1, 2022
  • I would love to do This and That, such a cute sampler.

    —OHSue on June 1, 2022
  • I like Slightly Tipsy for its fun play on drunkard’s path.

  • I love them all and all her books and fabrics. One of my favorites would be the Wind Spinner. I like the different sizes and the border.

    —Cinda Thompson on June 1, 2022
  • I would make "Apple Baskets" since I love basket quilts. That pincushion is really cute too!

    —Sharon on June 1, 2022
  • Windspinner caught my eye, but I love everything Kim does. Would love to win the fabric and book.

    —Debby on June 1, 2022
  • Soooooo many wonderful quilts! — I want to make so many 🙂 … but my first choice is Charm School, because 9 patches are my favorite. I am thinking about this in a full size quilt. Starting to gather scraps 🙂
    Thank you.

    —Carol Schon on June 1, 2022
  • Love every quilt. OMG! I want to make them all. Can’t wait to get started! My favorite is Apple Basket. Love everything to do with apples!

    Thalia Larson on June 1, 2022
  • I’ll make the Midnight one first!

    —Rand Case on June 1, 2022
  • All Kim Diehl’s designs are amazing, so it was a challenge to narrow down to one I liked the best which was ‘Apple Basket’.

    —Judy Kunkler on June 1, 2022
  • I love "MIDNIGHT", but this book contains many lovely mini quilts that would be fun to make.

    —Bonita Harms on June 1, 2022
  • "Autumn Tapestry" is my favorite! I’ve made two queen-sized quilts using Kim’s fabrics, and am ready to use up those beautiful scraps in a "Simple Whatnots" project.

    —Denise Brech on June 1, 2022
  • I would make Windspinner! I have recently decided I LOVE flying geese blocks even this some friends hate this block!

    —Janice on June 1, 2022
  • Choosing just one is very hard, so I think I need the book and fabric bundle so I can make the first one I love in the book called "Making Waves" . What a delightful small quilt, well they all are but that one is my favorite !! Also this could be a book that I do from front to back and do them all !!!!!!!!

    —Julie K Green on June 1, 2022

    —Gail on June 2, 2022

    —Debbie Helton on June 2, 2022
  • A great variety of little quilts! Really hard to choose, but I was drawn to "Frugal Housewife", loving the idea of "make-dos" that can be applied to a lot of quilts, great idea. The other one I fell in love with was "Ribbon Candy". My favorite Christmas candy as a kid, fascinating shape.

    Barb Haakonson on June 2, 2022
  • I meant "Frugal Farmwife" not Housewife.

    Barb Haakonson on June 2, 2022

    —Jean M Gerretsen on June 2, 2022
