I like the book but I have to say I was a bit disappointed after finally getting hold of it. The projects are not very original although many come with a twist, mostly appliques. If you would like to learn how to applique, this may be an interesting book for you although the patterns, like the projects, are again not terribly imaginative. However, I do like several projects, notably the wall clock (very nice design), the garden skirt (cover photo) and baby's first book (very cute, very adaptable for other crafts - and non-sewing - projects).

The instructions are very clear although very long and intimidating at first glance as most project steps are not accompanied by illustrations. I would have preferred more diagrams to accompany all those words.

Overall, a good book with some pretty projects but not very special if you're familiar with sewing books and blogs.
