I think this book is very fun & uses prints in an interesting way.
It is great for any skill level & the instructions in the book are very well written. There is no way anyone could have trouble putting this together. I would recommend everyone try it!
As far as finishing them, they don't need alot, just something simple. You don't need alot of experience to finish it.
And there are many great instructions on fabric selection, quilt construction, quiltmaking basics & binding.
I think it is a very fun concept! :)

I have always liked the Bargello pattern when I used it in needlepoint or plastic canvas patterns. I definitely do not like it in a quilt. This book shows picture quilts changed into the Bargello pattern. It makes them hard to look at, in my opinion, and difficult to see what the picture actually is. The book itself has six pages on basic quilting. The patterns give the finished size and a color photo of the quilt. A materials and cutting list is provided. Assembly instructions follow these lists. There are no graphics to show what the written steps are talking about. There are no quilting suggestions and the only finishing instructions are lay the quilt top on batting and backing, baste and quilt. Not much help for a beginner. There are six projects and a two photo gallery of other quilts. There is a short bio on the author. This is not a book I would recommend purchasing unless you are extremely excited about the Bargello look and have enough quilting experience that you don¿t need finishing suggestions.
