I so enjoy Kim Diehl`s books and would have enjoyed joining in with `Simple Whatnots` but the postage cost for overseas made this impossible for me. Nice to see a book with some in.

Kim’s Simple Whatnots are great, fun projects! I’ve done many! Our quilt guild hosted her when I was a brand new quilter and I did not take her class, because I was not confident enough at that time to try all those tiny pieces. I sooooo regret that now. Love following her on Facebook and Instagram!
