"A Flair For Fabric" Blog Hop - Kim Diehl


*Please note that when commenting your message may not show up immediately. We moderate our comments to prevent spam. Thank you!

Today we welcome Kim Diehl on the blog hop. She is the designer of the successful "Simple Whatnots" Club and her latest collections are "Heritage Hollow" and "Butter Churn Basics." We are pleased to announce the winner of the Kim Diehl "Simple Whatnots" Club Contest. Although every entry was beautiful we had to choose only one. Congratulations to Debbie Wick of Elmira, NY! We will be contacting you after the holiday. Thank you to all who entered.

[Heritage Hollow by Kim Diehl]

Welcome to the eighth day of the “A Flair for Fabric” blog hop, and thank you so much for taking this journey with us. I hope that you’ve been enjoying the designer posts as much as I have, along with the tips and tidbits that have been shared, and of course…the give-aways!


While I’m proud to be one of several Henry Glass designers who donated projects to this book to help benefit the Red Cross, receiving my copy in the mail recently was my first chance to see everything all finished up and looking like a “real” book. I was so excited to actually hold it in my hands that I ripped into the package and was completely glued to the pages as I read it from cover to cover. 

There are TONS of projects in this book, including my "Garden Bramble" patchwork and appliqué quilt.

And several more sewing and quilting projects that will leave you itching to stitch, including:
[Caboodle Quilting Caddy by Leanne Anderson]

[Starburst Maple Delight By Janet Nesbitt]

What a well-rounded collection of goodies, and the designer tips and fabric solutions that have been shared left me a little smarter than I was when I began reading. I love that!  
Here’s one more little tip I’d like to share with you – my favorite thing to do when I’m choosing prints for my scrap quilts is to include a “zinger”. What’s a zinger? It’s my nickname for a print that’s just a tiny bit “off” and doesn’t perfectly match the other prints I’ve chosen. Zingers add magic! I’ve learned to always use these prints more than once so their inclusion looks intentional, and I space them around my quilt top to give it a balanced look. In my Country Haven quilt, my zinger is the bright lavender print – if I were to take this away, some of the sparkle would be gone, don’t you think?

 [Country Haven, from Simple Appeal]

Do you have a favorite color that you can’t resist putting into each scrap quilt? Something you think of as your own personal zinger that works magic for you? Share it with me by December 3, 2014 at midnight and I’ll draw two winners from your entries – someone will receive a fabric bundle from Henry Glass Fabrics, and I’ll send someone else a bundle of 16 assorted print fat quarters gathered from my fabric collections. It’s like an instant scrap quilt waiting to happen…with any luck, your favorite zinger color will be included!
- Kim
Thank you Kim!
Happy Thanksgiving!
- HG

Love to add red!

Paula said...

I think my "Zinger" would be a purple or lilac shade. Back in my early days of quilting, I was taught that you should always add a bit of purple to your project. I guess that would be my Zinger

Tammy said...

What a great book to be part of. I know you are proud. I love to use a little aqua.....Thank you for the chance to enter your giveaway.

Diana Wilson said...

I have two zingers depending on what kind of quilt I'm making. One is wine/burgundy and the other is yellow/gold. Thanks for doing the hop as it has been great fun.

rebecca said...

A bit of blue is my zinger! Preferably navy.
Happy Holiday Season to all!!

Nancy Jez said...

I always add Kim's plum and cheddar fabrics to give my quilt a little zing and they turn out spectacular. Adding wool and cotton appliques is my fav, along with Kim's easy hand sewn buttonhole stitch with Valdani thread. Henry Glass's fabric is a winner to use in all my quilts.

Jean said...

My zinger color would be Pink. Love all your patterns and fabric.

Martina said...

I heard this tip for a zinger fabric starting with my journey of learning quilting and it really works to keep the quilt interesting. So your post just reminded me of this and gave me even more confidence to keep on with this.
Love your project in the book very much!

Cammi said...

I don't have a signature fabric, but I do tend to go for deep hues. Love all of your fabric lines Kim Diehl!
Happy Holidays to all!

Jodie P said...

Red--every Whatnot or scrap project has a shade or two of red in it.

Jodie P said...

RED--every project of mine has a shade or two of red in it. My favorite color to use

Rosalind Gutierrez said...

I have a favorite color - blue- but I haven't created a zinger idea for it in a quilt yet.

Deb G. in VA said...

I've never thought about putting in a zinger fabric, thanks for the great tip! I love your fabric and patterns!

martha said...

My zinger is orange!

Daune Walker said...

I always try to use just a little bit of purple in my fall quilts. It gives the quilt just a little bit of pop and everyone always says "I would never have thought of using purple".

DebrafromMD said...

I like to throw in cheddar as a zinger.

jefferson said...

Cheddar is my zinger.

Diane McLauchlan said...

I don't have a particular zinger fabric but I have often used one to pull a quilt together that just wouldn't otherwise. One was a 'bug' themed quilt for a grandchild. The blocks just blurred together so I used a bright zinger for the sashing and binding. It made the bugs just pop!
Diane in Wyoming

Diane McLauchlan said...

Although I do not regularly use a zinger fabric I have used it to 'rescue' quilts that didn't come out as expected. I made a bug quilt for a grandchild and the bugs were just a blur. I picked a zinger for sashing and binding and the bug blocks just popped!
Diane in Wyoming

Janie said...

Your work is simply stunning. The color I like to incorporate into a quilt is purple. Even if I use it on the label. Thanks for the inspiration, and the giveaway.

Brenda said...

I love to add a touch of green to every quilt. Happy Thanksgiving Kim!

Michelle said...

This book looks great! I like to add orange to my scrap quilts...I love orange, but don't tend to use it as a main color in my quilting projects. I love they way it "zings" in scrap quilts! Thanks for a chance to win!

Dee said...

My zinger is usually orange - I am trying to embrace my inner orange. I love your Whatnots club - and have all of our books - definitely a fan:) Thank you for your continued tips.

GranChris said...

It's blue for me. I just can't resist blues. I love your work, absolutely beautiful! Would love to have any of this fabric.

Jodie said...

RED RED RED. Every project needs a shade or two of red.

Karen Sikes said...

I like a little pop of pink!!!

sunny5597 said...

I love your Garden Bramble quilt! I also love your idea of a zinger! I haven't been quilting long enough to have even thought about that, but now I will. I think that your teal in the Garden Bramble is the zinger there and is one of my favorite colors. I love it! Thanks so much for your generous giveaway! :)

Donna K. from N. Texas said...

Kim, your designs are so fun and lively. That's why I love your books. I've not thought about the zinger fabric before. I'm fond of orange which probably would work as a zinger for me.

Joyce Carter said...

I really love your quilts and fabrics. Thank you for the giveaway. My favorite color to use is green.

Marilyn said...

I love your Garden Bramble quilt - just waiting for someone to cuddle up in. And, of course, your fabric line.

Tanya Simmons Weiss said...

I love your idea of using a "zinger" in your scrap quilts! As I'm a newbie I haven't developed a style or the ability to venture outside that proverbial box to even think about using a zinger. But the idea is very appealing and I hope to get the courage to use it in a future design.

Nancy said...

Beautiful fabrics and patterns! I've always been drawn to deep red, but more recently, teal blue. Thank you for the opportunity to win!

Joy Meetis said...

My scrap quilts always include a lot of blues.

Cindy Elliott said...

Cheddar! Love a tad of cheddar for pop!!

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I think my zinger fabric color is cheddar! I'm learning to be a little more adventurous and have added a few lavenders to my stash.

Becky R said...

The projects in the book are very inviting. I need to order it so I'll be ready to make a fun project!

Kaaren said...

I sure do, Kim! My "zinger" fabric is black. Virtually all of my scrappy quilts include black somewhere. It's a color that just seems to marry all the others together.

Keep those fabric lines coming. I didn't think it was possible but it seems like you outdo yourself with each one!

Denise said...

I am excited to go find and purchase this new book for myself for Christmas, lol. Kim Diehl is my favorite designer. The color that I always use in my quilts is red and usually some black. Merry Christmas to all. Happiest of holidays.
Denise Thalman

Linda said...

Thanks for the great give away, I love the quilts you have created. These fabrics are beautiful!

Judy Maggio said...

I like civil war repro colors and I like to pair them with wool appliqué.

Carrie P. said...

I don't use a zinger in my quilts but after reading this post I am going to figure out what color fabric
I would use. I am a big fan of your fabrics and patterns









Unknown said...

I always need a red in all my quilts. I love the quilt of yours in the book. Your fabrics look great. I hope to win a bundle.

Susan Oakes said...

Hi Kim! My favorite "zinger" color that I use in most quilts I make is cheddar. Never used to like yellows or golds of any kind early in my quilting life, but that changed about five or so years ago. Now I look for ways to include it, mostly in the cheddar format since I make a lot of reproductions -- its bold cheerfulness makes me happy!

Unknown said...

I always need a red in all my quilts. I love the quilt of yours in the book. Your fabrics look great. I hope to win a bundle.

Unknown said...

I always have to have a red in my quilt. I love your fabric line and the quilt featured on the cover of the book. I hope to win a fabric bundle.

Quiltluver said...

Blue is my favorite color. It is in every quilt I have made thus far. Love your fabrics and designs Kim

Karen Goddard said...

I love to add turquoise to my quilts and it just so happens to be my favorite color! It makes a great Zinger for country, muted colors.

Karen Goddard said...

I love to add turquoise to my quilts. It's my favorite color and a great Zinger to muted colors.

Gena in Dallas said...

I actually have two different zingers I use, depending on the quilt/project. One is a deep purple and the other is lime green. Thanks for the chance to win.

Lori Sutton said...

I would have to say shades of red, and blues would be a really close second

Anonymous said...

Lately my zingers have been yellow or lime green. I love the idea of using lavender and I'll give it a try in the future.

JANET said...

I always want to put a black print in my quilts, which drives my quilting buddy nuts. Now I can tell her Kim said it was OK!

Kathy MacKie said...

I've never thought of using a zinger fabric but now know it's time to start.

judi said...

I have a collection of Kim Diehl books and that fabric would be great to make something from them I even have a zinger too.

Carol Sc said...

I like to use either orange or turquoise as my "zingers". Sometimes it depends on the other colors in the quilt.

Eloise said...

I tend to add red. Even in my house, i go towards red for pop of color...

BizyStitches said...

You all are having just too much fun making this book. My zinger would either be a little brighter color of green, and some times I like to us an orangeish color. Right now I'm doing a block of the month and they have added a blue to a civil war plan. Love them all.

Michele T said...

Depending on the quilts that I make... I do love to add a little red to zing it up!! Thanks!!

Julie Scott said...

I love your designs, Kim, and your use of color inspires me! I try to use gold as a zinger. Thank you for all you do to make me push myself to be a better quilter.

Nann said...

My go-to zinger is orange/red. It's unexpected (lots of people say it's hard to use orange). My next go-to is lime green. It would be great to win either one as part of the bundle!

Linn said...

Love your line of fabrics!

Anonymous said...

I loke to use autumn colors as zingers in the creations I make. I enjoy your quilting style and the fabrics of your pallet.

Laura said...

My zinger is usually one of two colors, or both and those would be yellow and red. Thanks for a great giveaway and a great book! Happy Thanksgiving!

Linn said...

I love to add white or black to my quilts!

Flora said...

My zinger color is blue

Melanie Varela said...

My Zinger is purple. Even if I have to do the label only...it's going to get it.

heathquilter said...

My zinger is red--have to have a little bit! Love your fabrics and patterns! Thanks so much for this terrific opportunity!

Anonymous said...

My zinger color is turquoise. Love, love your fabrics Kim!

Karen Ruetz said...

Every quilt needs a little love...but it's the pinks and pumpkin colours that give it the zing!

Marie Chat said...

My color to add would have to be red! I seem to want to find that perfect 'scrap' of my zing color to make the quilt my own.
thanks for the fun!

quilter said...

I love your quilts and fabric so I am happy to enter this giveaway. My zinger color would be black or purple.

HI,my zinger color is dark red! Thanks for sharing!

msstitcher1214@gmail.com

LindaTN said...

I like adding gold and pinks as my zinger fabrics. Beautiful fabrics!

Fibercrafter said...

Mustard gold - in small amounts. It gets an extra zing when used as the quilting thread too.

Paula said...

My "Zinger" depends on the pattern and the colors I am using. Could a black, a blue, or purple. Just depends on what I am using. Love your fabrics and your patterns. Can't wait for the next "Whatnots"

Lynda said...

I love adding a bit of purple to my quilts.

Sandie @ crazy'boutquilts said...

I always add a bit of red. For years it was the same print and it is like playing a game to find it in my past quilts now. LOL Thanks for the fun!

Marque Powell said...

I love to use red, barn red. But I also like a golden yellow, but it has to be a certain color of yellow. But there are times when out of the blue you decide to pick a 'zinger' that you've never used before. Thank you for your designs. I love them all & your fabric. Amazing.

Susan Mulvihill said...

Hi, Kim! I love your fabrics and designs! I'm really into fall colors, esp. burgundy, so it's in practically every quilt I've made! Would love to win the giveaway!! Thank you so much.

Diana Minor said...

I love Blue the many shades of blue. I especially like the colors that Kim puts together, that helps me to add more color.

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

Kims quilt is wonderful! This one is going on my to do list. I also love her fabric, it's so warm and cozy. I always love red in a quilt. Thanks so much for the chance on this awesome giveaway!

Carol said...

I can't wait to get this book. I just started collecting Kim's fabrics. I would say throwing in the mustard shade would be my zinger. Love the new grouping.

Judy said...

My zingers would be a BRIGHT citrus color; lime, lemon or orange.

Gill said...

I love to add red!

Nancy said...

Never really thought about adding a "zinger" to a quilt, just go about chosing my fabrics and proceed from there. I have been adding CW cheddars to my beautiful stash though. Am partial to the country colors of reds, blues, golds, and greens.
I just adore your Garden Bramble!!

dianak said...

I do not think that I have a "standby" zinger, but I do look for something that will really pop with the other colors used. I have used lime with blues and orange/brown; orange with burgundy and navies; yellow with jewel tones. I just love color! ! ! !

Cathy B said...

420When I make scrappy quilts, which I LOVE, I like to add some gold and/or honey yellow to the mix. And ofcourse any scrap quilt needs red! ;) Thanks!!

Anonymous said...

Cheddar always brings out the best in all the other colors, I would say that is definitely my Zinger! Thanks for sharing your beautiful fabrics in a giveaway!
Agnes S. from Oklahoma

Judy1522 said...

I don't have a "Zinger" fabric that I always use. But I did make a pillow cover one time and added a bright pink zinger.

jwilliamstch said...

Turquoise

Bev @ kwiltpharm said...

My zinger depends on the quilt-alot of times it will be a lime green in a scrap quilt that just wakes it up! My son just told me that was his new favorite color when I spread my latest scrapper on the floor-so if it gets his attention it has to work!
Love your quilt-speaks to me...as in "make me!"

My Zinger is the teal blue. I love a splash of that in everything I do.

Candra Sowder said...

I put every color in the rainbow in a scrap quilt...the more, the merrier! Green would be my favorite.

Ann said...

I just finished my first quilt, so I am learning all this quilting jargon!! But if I had to pick a Zinger it would be maroon

Margaret Andrews said...

What beautiful fabric and I just love all shaded of blue and green.

Cheddar please. Jacquelinwhitener@att.net

Sandy Chavez said...

I am actually afraid of scrap quilts. Have to get over matching hues and pattern styles. But, having just received the "Flair for Fabric" book and the beautiful quilt pattern you featured, I can see starting one and using bright turquoise for my zinger.

Vjquilter said...

Gotta have red! It's my favorite color!

sunporchquilts said...

I am partial to red, but lately have started liking purple!

Lee said...

I add coral! Thank you!!

Karen Wood quilter09@sbcglobal.net

Ann Dunn said...

Along the same lines as a 'zinger', if there is a fabric which isn't favorite, throw it into the mix and it will blend. This works best on scrappy quilts and it needs to be used at least three times so that it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. I'll have to keep in mind using a 'zinger' too.

Janelle Bucher said...

Well, I am one of those people who tend to purchase kits. That way I don't have to come up with my own fabric selection. I get overwhelmed too easily when I try to do something that isn't a kit. So, having said that, I haven't done anything scrappy so have never needed to add a "zinger". But, my favorite colors are red and blue, so either of these colors would probably be what I would choose, unless the quilt is red or blue. LOL Would love the opportunity to win some fabric.

T. Forehand said...

Blue I always need a wedgewood or soldier blue

Liza S. said...

Oh my goodness you do learn something new everyday! I am going to get myself some zinger fabric. I love turquoise so perhaps that will be it.

Kelly L. said...

I always add black to my scrap quilts.

My quilts tend to be country primitive. I use a lot of red, brown, mustard and black. My "zinger " is often purple.

Karen George said...

Great book, love her things and patterns. I love to add red for punch

Vicki H said...

I like a little yellow or orange in my scrappy quilts.

Susan said...

No, I don't have any special color that I need to add to every quilt. Of course, I am still a beginning quilter, so maybe on down the road I might have one.

betty drake said...

I use mostly kits so don't think of slipping in another color. I'll have to add a little something extra next time I start something new.

Terri Hauge said...

BobbiD said...

My zingers is usually orange...although sometimes I will use a black! Would love to win this bundle!

ekquilter said...

in my first quilting class, the instructor said add gold or yellow. I love blues/greens/purples cool colors, so it was hard to do. But I totally think every quilt needs a zinger!

Allison said...

I always seem to include reds in my quilts. Usually it's a dark red like burgundy but you'll find it in everything I make.

quiltonia said...

A splash of yellow brings sunshine to a quilt---and we all need more sunshine.
Happy Holidays, love the projects in the book, maybe next year?

Lori said...

Your quilt is gorgeous. My color would be to add blues, or if my quilt is light to add brown.

Mary Samaniego said...

My favorite zinger fabric is chrome yellow. I don't know why I love it so much but it always seem to give a little "zip" to my quilts.

Bonnie Clark said...

My zinger depends on the colours of my quilt. If it's in the blue range then the zinger is either purple or hot pink. If it is in the brown tones - then orange or red is the zinger. I love high contrast. Thank you for the blog hop. THese are great fun. bclark26@rogers.com.
