NEW BOM: Esther’s Bloomers by Kim Diehl

Imagine a garden of reproduction fabrics growing and blooming all over! From January through June 2020, we’re hosting the Esther’s Bloomers Stitch-Along Block of the Month. You’ll sew up a 70.5″ square quilt that radiates outward with blooming blocks of reproduction fabric from Kim Diehl for Henry Glass Fabrics. The program ships around the 8th of each month for six months. Let’s take a look at this beautiful quilt!

This gorgeous medallion quilt is sewn with Esther’s Heirloom Shirtings by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass Fabrics. You’ll also want to pick up the matching Backing Set to complete your quilt. Here is a closer look at the design!

Be sure to sign up today to secure your spot and your fabrics! Sign up here.

Loving the fabric collection? This year, we are also hosting the Ninth Simple Whatnots Club. You’ll sign up to do eight mini quilts over eight months beginning in January and continuing through August 2020. This program ships around the 13th of each month. View all the quilts and sign up here.

Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi! Can you possibly tell me what this difficulty would be rated as? Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced.

    1. The shapes and piecing are very do-able, but the amount of them makes this quilt more advanced!

  2. Where can I get help with the six part stitch along? I have a question with piecing step 6 in the first months directions.
    Thank you

  3. I just received Block #2 kit. The directions state there are chubby 16ths but all the squares are 10 x 10. I am assuming this doesn’t matter in the cutting?
    Also, a word of caution to other quilters: use a scant 1/4 inch. I am finding there is absolutely no room for trimming the blocks. This is difficult for me as I would prefer the blocks to be slightly oversized. Had I known this, I probably would not have joined.
