Simple Whatnots

Do you love Kim Diehl’s fabric and patterns? Then you’ll love her Simple Whatnot’s Club starting this fall at Homespun Designs! We’ll be making six small quilt projects using her brand new line of fabric!

The six month program will have you making a wonderful  “Simple Whatnot” each month.  You will pick up your kit which will include enough of Kim’s new line of fabric—Vintage Farmhouse, for each project (top and binding) and the pattern.

We will have some scheduled evening “Simple Gatherings”  to keep things fun and exciting!

All this for just  $39.95 per month.  Sign-ups have begun, so come on in and get your name on the list, so you too can be part of all this excitement!
