Stacey Larson said...

So exciting - two of my favorite designers. I taught my niece to quilt 11 years ago and because Kim Diehl and Jo Morton have been fabrics I collect she always knew to look for their fabrics when shopping. She's now 21 and has had the honor of taking a class with Kim and meet Jo at Quilt Shows. We have pictures with both and we couldn't be more excited to have them both together in this book. I will be getting a copy for each of us.
