New from Kim Diehl – plus a half-off Kim deal! (+ giveaway)

When it comes to scrap quilting, there are many amazing designers to admire, and there are oodles of quilt patterns that inspire us to break out our scrap baskets. But Kim Diehl? Her scrappy quilts are pure fabric magic. Her mastery of the art—all the way down to her scrap binding—has compelled thousands upon thousands of quilters to create. The enchanting, warm, “make-do” feel she’s perfected has always been the focus of every quilt she creates. Put simply, Kim turns quilt scraps into the kind of quilts that make a house a home.

Did you know that the second quilt Kim ever made was an original design, and that her third quilt won American Patchwork & Quilting magazine’s 1998 Pieces of the Past quilt challenge? Since then, she’s authored six books, designed several fabric collections for Henry Glass, and taught quiltmaking all over the country (visit Kim’s website). But while Kim’s quiltmaking career has grown, her designs have stayed close to her roots: tried-and-true traditional patchwork, combined with sweet appliquéd details (using her signature invisible machine-appliqué technique).

Kim’s latest book, Simple Charm, features 13 new designs filled with all the beauty and cheer that scrappy quilts bring (see the projects at the bottom of this post). With the release of Kim’s new book, we’re thrilled to announce a special, limited-time offer:

Choose from any of Kim’s best-selling books (note that her first book, Simple Blessings, is back by popular demand as an eBook), plus her fun note cards and recipe tin.

     

   

All of the above items are 50% off when you purchase Kim’s latest book, Simple Charm. And remember, whenever you buy a printed book at ShopMartingale, you get the eBook version FREE.** See a full listing of Kim’s books and products at our site.

  • Kim’s style is uniquely hers in a world of sometimes look alikes. It has touches of primitive but with some fabrics can look very contemporary. I would love to have this book in my collection of her books. That would mean i only needed to purchase one more to have the full set!

    —Pam Huggins on May 8, 2012
  • I LOVE the patterns incorporating yo-yos! Yoyos are such an easy "take along" so a project can be worked on anywhere! I love the use of Simple in the title of each book too, it makes it sound so do-able!

    —Lynette on May 8, 2012
  • My absolute favorite is the cover quilt on Simple Traditions! I would love, love, love the Simple Charm book to get me started on another wonderful project!

    —CarolynW on May 8, 2012
  • I especially love the way Kim combines applique and piecing, I guess a pattern of Kim’s I look forward to making would be the Pineapple Quilt from Simple Comforts.

    —Paula Young on May 8, 2012
  • These books look wonderful. I noticed just the other day, that my scrap bin (a large kitchen size garbage can (cleaned and recycled to my fabric room)is almost running over. This would be a wonderful way to empty it a bit! I would love to win this book, please!

    —Stephanie on May 8, 2012

    Eileen Patocka on May 8, 2012

    —Sharon on May 8, 2012
  • I have all of Kim’s books and have made several projects out of each of them. I can’t wait to get "Simply Charms"

    I love how she adds some applique with her pieced work. Her color choices are great.

    —LInda on May 8, 2012
  • I love the patterns which incorporate applique. It seems like the perfect way to start appliqueing!

    —KarenW on May 8, 2012
  • This books sounds great! I am not familiar with Kim’s books. I am a beginner quilter and have lots of charm squares, so I think I could use this book!

    —Phyllis on May 8, 2012
  • I love the cover quilt on Simple Comforts – very striking!! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Becky Greene on May 8, 2012

    —Connie on May 8, 2012

    —Angela B. on May 8, 2012
  • I love Kim’s books! I only own one (Simple Traditions) which I love. But I really love the pattern Country Charm, which was in American Patchwork & Quilting. I made that pattern when I took a class from Kim and learned her applique method.

    —Darlene B on May 8, 2012
  • Kim’s style makes me want to go right to the quilt studio and dive into my stash. I especially like Feathered Stars in "Simple Traditions".

    —Jane on May 8, 2012

    I love the pineapple table runner, that would love beautiful on my table.

  • I do not have any of Kim’s book, though I have heard of them. My favorite project is the quilt in Simple Charms that is photo #3 above.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Garilyn on May 8, 2012
  • I’m not familiar with her work, so I don’t have a favorite. yet. LOL!

    —Nancy B from Many LA on May 8, 2012
  • My favorite book is Simple Graces but I love all her patterns! Her color
    combinations are fabulous! I would love to make a scrappy quilt from her new book.

    Cheryl on May 8, 2012
  • I have all Kim’s books and love looking through them for inspiration. I especially like the Welcome Wagon yo yo quilt in Simple Graces, but the project I like most is from the August 2002 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting called Small Traditions. Little patchwork pillows that can be used to brighten any area of the home. I’ve made many of them for myself, and they also make perfect gifts to whip up when you’re in a hurry.

    —Judith Hogan on May 8, 2012
  • Of all the quilt designers I’ve encountered through their books, Kim is my favorite. The colors she uses are so rich and warm! I have her first two books and look at the pictures all the time. My favorite of her quilt designs is "Idaho Farm Girl Lap Quilt", from "Simple Traditions". It has a striking graphic quality yet such pleasing soft colors. I love her quilts that combine geometric piecing with floral applique. It’s nice to see how appreciated Kim’s design and quilting talents have become, in a relatively short time.

    —Debbie on May 8, 2012
  • Choosing a favorite from any of Kim’s books is difficult but I do love her first book "Simple Blessings". Winning her new ebook would complete my collection.

    —Denise Jewell on May 8, 2012
  • This is the first I’ve seen, but I like what I’ve seen

    —Kathrynn on May 8, 2012
  • I just finished a quilt made from a kit called Along the Fence. It had Kim’s fabric and pattern. I love all Kim’s books. I think I have them all except for her new one. I would love to win it.

    —Susan Griffith on May 8, 2012
  • LOVE Kim Diehl. My favorite book has been Simple Traditions. I’m lucky enough to have a signed copy. My fingers are crossed – it would great to have her latest book. She’s incredible!

    —Polly Hada on May 8, 2012
  • Kim,
    I love all of your books because I am drawn to piecing plus appliqué. Your color schemes draw me to you patterns and books also. It is wonderful to know that you can always find your next project by going to one source.
    Thank you,
    Denise

    —Denise Cabral on May 8, 2012
  • I like the Simple Charm book the best. I took a look through all of her books and decided on that one. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

    —Karrie Smith on May 8, 2012
  • The quilt on the cover of Simple Traditions is my favorite, but I haven’t gotten near attempting to make it yet. I did make a really cute wall-hanging of a heart–I think it came from Simple Traditions. Which reminds me that I planned to make a couple more as Christmas gifts, and it’s probably time for me to get started working on them. 🙂

    —Beth on May 8, 2012
  • I like the simple designs and the darker fabric table runner, wall hanging and quilts. The scrap kittens are adorable!
    Blessings!

  • How am I ever to say which is my favourite Kim Diehl book or quilt. I have all of her books (except this new one)!!!! I just love all her quilts and her work is amazing. At our local quilt shop last year we started a "Kim Diehl Club". We get together each month, make her quilts and share each others excitement at new ones completed and of course oooh and ahhh over her new designs.

    —Lee Mills on May 8, 2012
  • I’m sorry to say that I don’t have any of her books but do have many scraps to make her designs. I know Kim is respected in the quilting world and love the homey feel her projects evoke.

    Joanna on May 8, 2012

    —Deanna Daugherty on May 8, 2012
  • Oh my goodness, Jenny, where have I been? Have I been under a rock and didn’t realize it? I had not heard of Kim until today, and after I read your text I spent a long time, scrolling up and down looking at her creations….absolutely enchanted. I want to know more, and I am intrigued by what you mentioned as her technique for invisible machine applique. I’m wowed by her colors and how everything looks scrappy, but is in color harmony. Wow! I sure hope I can win this one!!

    —Jeanne on May 8, 2012
  • How can you pick one of Kim’s books as a favorite when they are all wonderful, inspirational, and such a joy? Had the privilege of taking one of her classes and besides writing such great books she is a wonderful teacher. Have all of her books and have preordered the new one. Always thrilled to find out that she has another book coming out. Would love another copy to share with my sister.

  • It is so fun to see such beautiful ideas for ways to use all those fabric pieces in the chest! The artistic creativity represented in her books is delightful!

    —Ginger McL on May 8, 2012
  • I love Kim Diehl’s books. Two of my daughters wedding quilts were made using patterns from her Simple Seasons book. One daughter chose "Taffy Pull" which are beautiful scrappy courthouse step blocks and the other daughter chose the "Country Wedding Ring" from the same book. I was so excited to be able to make 2 beautiful quilts from her book.

    —Avon Bingham on May 8, 2012
  • I have most of Kim’s books and love all her work. The homey, scrappy look appeals to me and it’s only made better by the addition of applique. Kim is an amazing artist.

    —Jane Levering on May 8, 2012
  • My favorite book is Simple Comforts cuz all the quilt photos were taken at Gardner Village in SLC – not too far from where I live. SO fun to see them all displayed there when I look through the book. I own all Kim’s book and will have this one too eventually – would love to win it!

    —Gayle on May 8, 2012
  • I have only just recently discovered Kim Diehl and am loving what I have seen from her. I only have one of her books, Simple Traditions. Would love to get my hands on her new book. Thanks.

    Sydney on May 8, 2012
  • I totally love her style and everything she does. I especially love a series she did in AQP some time ago. I saw a picture of it somewhere and tracked the out of print magazines down on ebay. It’s gorgeous!

    —Robyn Brown on May 8, 2012
  • I do not own a Kim D. book though have seen photos of her work many times. I like her feathered star quilts and the very first circle quilt 1/13 in your photo montage. My mother loves scrappy quilts like this, so would like to win a copy of this newest book to share. We live and quilt together. Thanks for the chance.

    —MarciaW on May 8, 2012
  • I am inpressed with her creativity and her mixing of quilt applications. Pieced and appliqued and they look marvelous together. Would love a copy of her newest book, "Simple Charm". Thanks for all your beautiful work!

    —Debra Waldrop on May 8, 2012
  • Her designs are the best! thanks!

    —Lee on May 8, 2012

    I would love to win this book!

    —Cathie in Ut on May 8, 2012
  • I have all of Kim’s books and love each one. Her designs and fabric choices give the message of warm homey comfort!

    —Bev on May 8, 2012
  • Simple Blessings is one of my favorites! Kim is the best traditional quilt designer ever.

    —Denise on May 8, 2012
  • Simple Blessings is my favorite so far. The patterns are charming. I love the mix of piecing with beautiful applique. I have made several projects so far and am shopping for fabrics for my next project out of the book. I would love to win your new book. Thank you for the chance. Happy Quilting.

    —Sharon Meyer on May 8, 2012
  • I was not familiar with her work, but I loved the photos you showed here. I especially like #4, the stars with a burgundy background.

    —Diann Cornell on May 9, 2012
  • I WANT this Ebook!!! As soon as possible! Thank you, daniela

    —daniela on May 9, 2012
  • All of Kim’s designs look fantastic. I would love to give her beautiful patterns a try.

    DianeH on May 9, 2012
  • The cover quilt on Simple Graces is what made me buy that book and I plan to make that quilt one of these days.

    I bought Simple Blessings for its cover quilt, too, but I have enough applique projects in line to exceed my expected lifetime, so I doubt that I will ever get that done.

    In Simple Charm, I love Spice Pantry for its quaintness and its smaller size makes it a "do-able" prospect for me. My quilts tend to be oversized queen and king monsters but Spice Pantry is perfect for the couch.

    Choosing favorites from Kim’s projects is difficult because her color sense and her whimsical twists on traditional designs make all of her projects attractive to me.

    —Elizabeth on May 9, 2012
  • I would love to win this book! I love the way Kim combines piecing and applique!

    Connie Campbell on May 9, 2012
  • No I didn’t know Kim’s work before, but I find it very varm and cozy – earth colours that make me think of sitting in front of a fireplace, or in a rocking-chair on a porch all wrapped up in a beautiful quilt.

    —Inger Martinson on May 9, 2012
  • I love the Mocha Stars from Simple comforts, I love the colors, applique and uniqueness.

    —lori on May 9, 2012
  • I love every thing Kim. The books which I own them all but the last one and all of her fabrics. She makes great patterns.

    Sue Bennett on May 9, 2012
  • Kim Diehl is inspiration for me when I find myself in a quandary for color or ideas. Love Simple Traditions book

    —Juanita on May 9, 2012
  • I did not know of Kim before. I am really glad to know of her now! Really love her designs and color choices. It’s great that she does applique with pieced quilts as this is a love of mine.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

  • I love her work! I don’t have a favorite because all her stuff is so fantastic. The cover quilt on her Simple Graces book is to die for! I have all her books so I will definitely need this one too!

    Sandy M on May 10, 2012
  • My favorite project is from Kim’s first book, Simple Blessings. It’s a wall-hanging called Whigs & Roses.(I hope that’s the name. I do know it’s in her first book) It just grabs me:)

    Becky in Georgia on May 10, 2012
  • Kim is so very talented and I truly love all of her books. Difficult to pick a favorite, but I guess it would be Simple Graces.

    —Mhairi on May 11, 2012

    Agnes B. Bullock on May 11, 2012
  • I love her book Simple Comforts! It has such sweet designs and in lap sizes which are easy and quick to sew up and give as gifts or spruce up a blah corner in my home!

    Teresa in Music City on May 11, 2012
  • I’m new to Kim Diehl. Heck, new to quilting in general. But I really like the first quilt in the pictures above, the one with the circles.

    —Lisa Cox on May 11, 2012
  • I don’t have a Kim Diehl favorite but I love the first photo in the slideshow above with the segmented circles and pieced and appliquéd border. I might have to get Simple Charm just for that pattern!

    Kristen on May 11, 2012

    —Joyce Mitchell on May 12, 2012

    —Jodi on May 12, 2012
  • I am just be introduced to Kim’s books:0 but I have been browsing and I must say I am going shopping. I love her style in every aspect. I am not a very experienced quilter but I would try everything. It seems that her instructions "simple" and easy to understand.

    Thank you for this wonderful chance for awesome book!

    —Donna W on May 12, 2012

    Simple comforts is still on my wishlist :-))

    Thank you for a chance to win Kim’s new book.

    —Dea on May 12, 2012
  • I found Simple Traditions at my local library here in Tasmania and fell in love with Kim’s designs. It is my must have book. Her new book Simple Charms looks just as ravishing, I need to make those cats! I would love to win this book! Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Edwina Brown on May 12, 2012
  • As a quilter for over 40 years, my love for different quilt designers has waxed and waned. Until Kim Diehl! I instantly fell in love with her designs, color palette, and mix of piecing and applique. I have nearly all of her books and have even cut her patterns out of quilt magazines. But my favorite design is "Thistle Thicket". Two years ago for my birthday my sister made it for me in my favorite colors and sent it across the country as a surprise! It is the first quilt given to me since my grandmother gave me a quilt as a child! So a quilt made by my sister from my favorite designer…heaven!

    Susan E White on May 13, 2012
  • I really like the cover on Simple Graces and want to check out the whole book.

    —Judy M on May 14, 2012
  • Kim’s books are beautiful. I love the Traditional quilts and the colors that she uses. She is such a gifted and creative designer, with the traditional look as her foundation. Thanks for giving away a copy of this book.

    Jocelyn on May 14, 2012
  • I love to quilt, and have made quite a few quilted items since being introduced to it several years. My favorite quote from a friend is
    "it’s okay! there are no quilt police! you can actually change the color scheme!"
    I would love to win any type of quilting book, as I get inspired by just seeing simple pictures. The Lord has truly blessed me with a gift!

    Julie Paulaski on May 14, 2012
  • I don’t think I’ve read thru any of these books, I sure don’t own any of them 🙁 they all look really nice!!

  • I have been curious of Kim’s books for a few years now, (from reading blogs). Would have been tempted with the 50% off but found that too late. Oh well, maybe this will be my lucky day.

  • I’m a beginning quilter so I wasn’t familiar with Kim, but I love what I’ve seen!

  • I don’t have a favorite book or pattern. I love Kim’s choice of colors and how her patterns are easy to put together. When you open a book Kim wrote there’s so much eye candy, you want to make every quilt, every single quilt. I’m not into modern quilts or crazy fabric patterns, Kim’s color choices POP. I’d love to win Kim’s new book! ;-> Toni Anne

  • I had never seen Kim’s books before untill it was mentioned on a blog I was stalking. I would love to win her book. I am always looking for ways to use up my scraps. I sew a lot of kids clothes so I accumulate a ton of scraps for quilting.

  • I was lucky enough to see Kim Diehl do a trunk show of her work a couple of years ago and I can honestly say that I love all of her projects! Especially her applique…it’s amazing!

  • Kim’s designs are just my style!!! I love the colors that she uses– so cozy!!! I can’t choose a favorite— every one of her patterns has something about it that makes me think *it’s* my favorite! 🙂
