Fabric of the Month

My February fabric of the month from KickAss Country Store came.


I recently bought this book from Amazon. The quilts in it are really beautiful. There is also an applique technique that is new to me, which I am looking forward to trying.


With my reproduction fabric I am thinking of making this quilt.

I just need a few more lighter fabrics to get started on it.
At Amazon.ca they show all the quilts in this book -at Amazon, search Simple Comforts, then just click on the picture of the book (sorry, I couldn't get this to work as a link). This is a great idea, I have only seen a couple of books with this feature, but they should do it more. I wasn't disappointed with the book when it came.

Have a great day! ♥

Went to Amazon to see the book. I don't blame you for wanting to make that quilt. It's lovely. I also liked the diamond square/pinwheel one.

Hi Joanne. I just ran across your blog and agree with the others -- the fabrics are fabulous. You will love using Kim Diehl's machine applique technique. I took 3 classes from her at the end of January and have finished one quilt and am nearly done with another using her technique. I blogged about some of the tips and tricks she mentioned in class if you're interested. I loe every project Kim has designed. I have all of her books (and she has a new one coming out this fall). www.bountifulheirlooms.blogspot.com

I also love your Spanish Steps quilt.
