My class with Kim Diehl was a lot of fun! I learned some cool tips for leaf points, working with mono-poly threads, and big stitch quilting. It started on Sunday night at the Holiday Inn in St. Cloud where we had a dinner before Kim's trunk show. We were treated to a bundle of a couple of fat quarters and a free Kim D. pattern from Gruber's quilt shop.
|Kim started her presentation by showing the quilt that made her famous.|
She won the first contest by American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.
The entries had to be made with Thimbleberries fabrics.
|Kim also showed us some brand new projects-love this one!|

|More new designs!|
|This will be a new fabric line for Henry Glass. There will be a blue colorway too!|
Monday's class started at ten and the day went by in a flash.
|Kim was an excellent teacher--very patient and very nice lady!|

I like the technique Kim uses for preparing the appliques and, even though I will still do hand applique, I like the look of this method and will definitely use it again .
