The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The quilt was quite simple to make, and it turned out perfectly. We did experience one BIG problem - none of the local copy shops would enlarge the pattern until we had written permission from the publisher. I emailed Denyse Schmidt to ask for permission and within 24 hours, I had the written approval necessary. I understand this will not be a problem in future printings of the book as the publisher will include wording that is very clear about allowing copy shops to enlarge the patterns.
I think an experienced quilter would find this book too basic and not very inspiring. However, if you like sewing and you like to make quick gifts for your friends then I strongly recommend this book. There are so many great gift projects (the vintage-inspired apron being my personal favorite) and for kids the juggling squares are a perfect beginning sewing project.
