Kim Diehl's Trunk Show

We are so sorry if you were one of the unlucky ones who had to miss this trunk was AMAZING! Kim Diehl was so delightful as she shared quips and stories about her quilting life and art.  The pictures can't even begin to capture what we loved about Kim and her quilts.  Thank you Debbie Liechty and all others involved for arranging this wonderful couple of days with Kim's workshops and trunk show! 

Kim began her quilting career not really following any rules.  She invented her own method of doing bindings and still does it the same way today.  Her new book will be released in October and we can't wait!
