The latest Kim Diehl Simple Whatnots Club kit arrived last week. I am woefully behind in the Second season of kit offerings, but will definitely get to making them. This one is such a nice design and the fabrics are perfect for my home.
I have made perhaps five or six of the kits so far in the program. This latest kit was the twelfth I have received over the year. The program was divided into two series of six kits each. The first six kits were all made from the same collection of fabrics, Vintage Farmhouse, as I recall. The second six kits were made from another collection, Heritage Hollow. The third series of six, Simple Whatnots 3, will be made with her Gathering Baskets group.
The patterns have all been super cute, some with appliqué variations if one is so inclined. The small size of each project makes it very do-able and pretty speedy to complete. The fabrics are with few exceptions, quite pretty in a primitive/country style. My only complaint, and it is a fairly minor one, is that I do get tired of working with the same group of fabrics for six projects in a row. There are many pieces in each collection however, and the pattern designs/colors are very scrappy, so the end results are all extremely harmonious, should one use all the quilts in one's home. Alternatively, keep some of the little quilts for yourself and give some away to lucky friends or family.
I give this subscription kit club a thumbs up and think I will continue with Series 3, even though I have some big time catching up to do with making the projects.
