Gathering Garden is a flimsy!

Gathering Garden
by Kim Diehl
I think I have finished all the quilts I wanted to make in Kim's book,
Simple Charm.
Besides, I am tired of appliqueing!

I have been piecing up a storm on the picnic quilt for my granddaughter.
I will be post a picture once it is done.
Since it National Quilting month,
no better time to be at my machine sewing!

  17. I love the quilt in the home page photo. Could you please identify it for me? Is it an original design or can I find it somewhere public? It's just lovely with all the scrappies! Thanks for sharing!

  18. Please ignore my question about your focus quilt in the headliner. I have been reading through your blog and discovered the post about it and Kim Diehl's book. Thanks so much. I, too, love wool applique but am just beginning my journey! Happy Stitching.
