Kim Diehl, Quilt Designer

One of the most popular authors out there is Kim Diehl. Kim is very talented, and has a look that is all her own. She combines a country look with contemporary appliqué designs that are fabulous! She calls it “tradition with a twist.” She is also a fabric designer for Henry Glass.

I sort of consider her “local” because she is from Idaho, and Northern Utah and Southern Idaho have a lot of ties. She does a lot of teaching in Utah.

Her latest book is Simple Appeal, which features 14 new designs. Without further ado, here are some quilts!
