Simple Patchwork Combines with Applique for a Stunning Charmer!
Kim Diehl has done it again with this wonderful lap quilt. The quilt is put together with simple pieced blocks and borders. The applique around the border gives it a charming folk art twist.
We love the scrappy dark fabrics that Kim chose, but can also imagine this quilt sewn up with brighter fabrics.
This quilt may not be for a beginning quilter. You’ll need cutting, piecing and applique skills, but will be a fairly easy project for experienced quilters.

The finished quilt is 60″ x 60″, just right for a lap quilt. Add another wide border to the outside (without applique) to size it for a bed (you’ll find bed quilt sizes here).
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
