I bought this book as a treat for myself and was very disappointed. As mentioned in the other review there is a distinct lack of instructions and for a quilter the seam allowance and ironing information are confusing.
I also found the list of items needed very vague and no finished item measurements, so you don't even know what you are aiming for size wise.
On the up side the book has lovely projects and great photography, but I would personally do some major tweaking on all the projects to make them work for me.
Great for inspiration, but perhaps not a beginners book.
