Applique The Kim Diehl Way

Snowball Blossoms by Kim Diehl

Kim Diehl signature style includes scrappy patchwork, beautiful applique and a stunning palette of prints that she designs for Henry Glass. Her keen color sense is showcased in her latest collection, Gathering Basket. The collection is full of pretty prints painted with Kim's flair for color ranging from luscious greens to fresh purples, reds and yellows.


For the release of this collection, Kim has designed a special project, Snowball Basket. This lovely quilt features a simple but gorgeous applique center surrounded by easy patchwork. You can download it for free here.

Kim teaches her special applique worldwide and freezer paper plays a big part of the process. Do you use freezer paper when you applique but find that the paper you buy in the grocery store curls or doesn't tear off the rolls smoothly? Kim teamed up with Martingale & Co. to bring you Kim Diehl's Best Applique Freezer Paper - convenient 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of freezer paper that you can draw on or even print on your inkjet printer.


With the 30-sheet set, you can download the pattern for this sweet quilt, Folk-Art Dish Garden for free following the directions located in the package of freezer paper.

I love applique as a compliment to piecing on quilts

Oh, I'd love to stop struggling with that big roll of paper....Kim's sheets sound like super tools for better applique! Her fabrics are lovely, too. Would love to win and try the Snowball pattern. Thanks for the chance to win!

I have never tried appliqué. I'd like to some day! Thank you for the opportunity to win an awesome giveaway!!

Ann Dunn said...

I don't usually work with applique. When I do, I find that it is fun to fussy cut the pieces. It's easy to do raw edge applique and it doesn't take a lot of time to finish a project.

I love the beauty of applique. Makes me want to be better at doing it and I love Kim Diehl!

I haven't done much in applique. One thing I do know about applique is that you can take it with you and work on it while waiting or traveling somewhere.

I love applique because the finished designs are amazing and all you do is turn under the edge and stitch it down! I'm also able to work on my sewing while I'm still with the rest of the family. I don't always want to be tucked away in my sewing room.

What I love about applique is the graceful curves that you can achieve only with applique. I love both wool applique and traditional needle-turn applique with cotton fabrics.

This is such a beautiful applique. I want to try the freezer paper technique.

Mary said...

Oh wow, if it's Kim Diehl appliqué, I love it! I love the fact that appliqué is so freeing - no one really knows if you got the shape just right or not:). It adds a wonderful design element to patchwork and is really fun, once you've gotten over the fear!

Sandy N said...

Ah, the perfect fabric for the perfect pattern. Love doing machine applique, but I am anxious to learn Kim's method.

DonnaB said...

I like that applique adds the handmade quality to a project. In this world of machine quilting, piecing, applique even--when it is hand done, a little extra love is added. DB

Tammy Hildebrandt said...

I love the freedom of design and expression that you get with applique. It can change an ordinary project into something extraordinary! It's that little extra something to make a project sing!

NancyB said...

I will enjoy using Kim's Freezer paper for future applique.

Wendi said...

To me appliqué adds another element of design and beauty to any sewing project.
I love the way applique conveys the message of doing something extra, making
a project reflect another element of the intended overall effect by raising the
quilting level up a couple of notches. And it just looks beautiful!

WoolenSails said...

I love the versatility of appliqué and using it in pieces that I make for others, as well as myself.
I enjoy making small quilts for those who are going through illness or tough times with inspirational sayings and appliqué.

My favorite thing about applique is the portability of the project. I have all of Kim's books and adore her applique projects. Her freezer paper is going to be a great addition to my applique stash :) thanks for a fun giveaway.

I love applique. A person can make a quilt based on whatever picture they want with applique. I have done machine applique but currently I am trying my hand at hand applique. I love that, too! It gives me something I can do when my husband wants me sitting next to him watching television.

Have done machine applique but not Kim's way so would love to win the applique freezer paper sheets to give "real" applique a try. The fabric is wonderful, marvelous colours and design. Anne S

I've done a quilt with circles that I appliqued. And I've appliqued spray of flowers on two corners of two quilts. Sometimes a quilt needs just a little something to really make it POP. Thank you for the opportunity to win a super great giveaway.

I love that applique sits on top of the patchwork, and brings it to life!

Carol Gearey said...

Haven't done a lot of applique but I love how it looks! I have done some hand applique but mostly I've done machine applique.

Vivian said...

I love the unique shapes you can create with applique -- those designs that go beyond the straight lines of piecing. There's also something "softer" and "flowing" about applique designs and the extra dimension factor of adding something to the top of a block or background. I've always enjoyed Kim's designs so appreciate knowing her technique for creating them!

BizyStitches said...

I love quilts and wall hangings with applique because it gives them more dimension and interest to the pieced item. I have to say how much I love the fabric bundle. Thanks for adding my name to the drawing.

Sunnie said...

I have never appliqued but Id like to try it on baby clothes and cloth diapers.

Cher Merriman said...

I have attempted needle turn applique in the past but, not loved the result! So, I usually skip those patterns , or do machine applique. Quick and easy. With good instructions and the right tools, such as Kim's paper sheets perhaps I would attempt it again.

Peddlecar Quilts said...

I love everything Kim Diehl, and have both of her previous lines. Would LOVE her new one for more fun projects!!

Diana Hengesbach said...

I love this fabric and design.

I love to applique, but have not done any lately, mostly a hexie girl these days. This is the inspiration I need.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

WHat I like about applique is the many different methods of the technique. I can use which suits the pattern/design I am working on. Lovely line of fabric.

Martina said...

I love to add lovely shapes and patterns to a pieced quilt. Makes it just so special. And i love especially, that I can take my applique work with me wherever I go. So waiting somwhere is quite fun now, lol!

PK Sews said...

Thanks for this awesome giveaway! I love applique because it's portable, relaxing, and has beautiful results!

Karen in Breezy Point said...

I think applique is a little like painting--choosing the perfect fabric for a leaf or flower--it adds so much to the design of the quilt. It's kind of like frosting!!

amie said...

What I love about appliqué is the ability to personalize projects with symbols or designs that have special meaning to the maker or the receiver!

Kathy E. said...

I've done lots of applique, both with my embroidery machine and my regular machine. What I love most is that I can choose the fabrics, the thread and the stitch to make each and every design unique. I can buy a design, a template or even hand-cut my own drawing too!

Loris said...

Kim's designs and techniques are wonderful. I like to applique to get very specific designs in my quilts. I love that there are so many techniques for it. thank you for the generous giveaway. I love Kim's fabric designs and would love to try out her new freezer paper.

Christine said...

I enjoy appliqué because I love handwork. Kim Diehl's quilts with their appliqué are always appealing.

JANET said...

What is not to like? Applique puts the finishing touch on a quilt. I love to hand applique at night while DH has on mindless TV. It relaxes me and I have something to show for my time.

Denise Cabral said...

I love the look of applique. I feel it adds a wonderful added dimension to any project. I would prefer to do machine applique because it goes faster but am currently working on an applique project that is done by hand. It is my take-along project for road trips.

Good project to work on outside the sewing room and it add to the detail of the project.

I love hand appliqueing baby quilts, wall quits, and lap sized quilts. I use Kim's method of ironing two pieces of freezer paper together to make the template more stable. She has great hints. Thank you for the giveaway.

I'm a newbie to applique, but would love to learn to make some beautiful projects like Kim's! Being able to use any design I want is intriguing. Hope to win this bundle. Thanks for offering it!

Jacky said...

I love appliqued quilts. I find that so much easier than patchwork where you have to get the seams to line up and corners etc. I love the shapes you can use when you are appliqueing (hope I spelled that correctly!)Anything you can draw you can applique!

Anonymous said...

I love Kim's designs because she usually combines applique with traditional piecing. These new applique papers will make the job just that much easier. You know we love anything that will simplify the process. I also love the fabrics! The rich colors are right up my alley!!

Oh my,what don't I love about applique! The quiet,close up work of hand-applique is like a soothing balm for my soul. It totally relaxes me,and sometimes,I like to add my own little touches to the applique,just to make it more personalized. I LOVE Kim Diehls patterns! Her creativity truly speaks to my soul and I would be THRILLED to win! Thank you for the opportunity! -Myra

Shelly sandy said...

Still a newbie to hand appliqué, but have completed one small wall hanging. However, I LOVE machine appliqué for making non-heirloom mini quilts and gifts. It is a nice change of pace from making strictly pieced quilts.

Momma/Deb said...

I love applique for several reasons: it's portable - so easy to keep a baggie of supplies and scraps of fabric at the ready for Drs. visits and such. With Kim's applique papers, it's even easier to travel with my applique kit! It's an easy type of work for short bits of time - easy to pick up and put down. I love applique for the evenings in front of the TV with hubby or when I am just too tired to sit at a sewing machine.
With applique, I am able to stay busy no matter where I am or what I'm doing. Plus, it really gives a quilt the 'soft' touch...a great artistic finish to a pieced quilt. But most of all, applique allows me to 'design' my own fabric. Not a bad set of reasons I am in love with Applique! Hugs, Deb

I find applique difficult and want to try my hand at it again. I'd love to try the new freezer paper! Applique makes a beautiful quilt. I love your fabric.

I am very much a newbie when it comes to applique. I am at a point now that I no longer automatically look at an applique pattern and say no to it. I am wanting to jump in and try my hand at it. Kim Diehl's patterns are definitely some of my favorites to try. I would love to add to my Kim collection with this wonderful giveaway.

Mona @ ldstevmo@hotmail.com said...

Applique can be fussy, but mostly it's more forgiving than piecing, so it's relaxing for me. And I prefer the more natural look of appliqued birds and flowers than the pieced versions. Kim's designs are wonderful, so it's no surprise her fabrics are too. Thank you for your generous give-away opportunity.

I am definitely still a newbie when it comes to applique. I am at the point now that I am ready to jump in and no longer automatically say NO to any pattern that includes applique.

I would love to win this collection of her fabrics and have a good reason to get started on this new adventure.

I love the way it gives detail to a project, applique gives the project its own personality. You can make it simple,elegant and even humorous.

Greetings! I've been doing machine applique for many years but have never tried the freezer paper method. I LOVE Kim Diehl's patterns and fabrics and have made numerous of them. Winner a FQ bundle of hers would be like icing on the cake. Thanks. Peace & joy to you!

I love that applique opens the doors wide to more detailed quilting where piecing can get u only so far!

Applique adds a touch of gentleness to any project I make. I like the intricacy of it and I enjoy adding additional colors to complement the project.

I love the look applique gives a quilt.

I love applique because of its versatility. It can stand alone beautifully or be used in amazing ways in combination with other techniques such as piecing or embroidery. Applique is also versatile in that it can be accomplished by hand or machine and again in so many ways, just pick the one that fits your skills and desired outcome.

What I like best about the applique process is the look and feel of 'country' that it adds to a quilt or project. If Kim recommends this freezer paper then it's gotta be 'the bomb'!
