They’re All Simply Stunning!
We recently shared a photo of a gorgeous quilt on our Facebook page and were astounded by the positive response. At the time we didn’t know who the designer was, as the photo wasn’t credited.
However, comments from our followers helped us identify Kim Diehl as the creator of this spectacular quilt.
The quilt is called Late Bloomers and inspired the nearly identical Midnight Blooms pattern, which is free from allpeoplequilts (learn more here). The only difference appears to be the fabrics used. The finished quilt is 65 1/2″ square.
We love everything about this quilt. The fabric selection is inspired, the colors sing and the applique flowers add a touch of whimsy to an eye-catching quilt.
While tracking down that quilt pattern we discovered three other free patterns for Kim’s quilts that we think you’ll enjoy.
Snowball Blossoms, at 21.5″ x 21.5″ can be used as a wall quilt or table topper.
The finished size of the dramatic Evening Star quilt, shown above, is 64.5″ x 64.5″. It would look great on a large wall, or use it as a throw for the sofa, or a topper on the bed over a simple bedspread. This pattern is also from Henry Glass Fabrics.
Kim’s Garden Grove quilt measures 60.5″ x 60.5″ and can be used like the Evening Star quilt.
One nice thing about these three patterns is that they list specific fabrics so you can match the quilts exactly (provided they’re still available). But feel free to mix up the colors however you want. You’re sure to produce something wonderful with whatever fabrics you choose!
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!
