Most of the projects were interesting and I would definitely try them as I grow as a sewer. Other Zakka inspired books had a lot of projects that didn't really interest me, but this one was abundant with projects I'd love to do; it is constantly in my backpack for perusal!
Note: some of the supplies needed some googling (like hook and loop = velcro).
Overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone interesting at starting a hand in quilting!
The designs are adorable, beautifully photographed, and the color/fabric choices are very inspiring. One of the few that appeal to my color pallet. Because it appeals, I'm so much more inspired. And, these are complex, but none overwhelm me. I've only done 1 quilt and that was extremely simple.
I made the dino hat and love it. I had a ball picking the colors and sewing it up. Used up lots of scraps and am ready to make more projects. I hope Ayumi writes another book.
overall, this book is worth buying just for the lovely photos, but is also a great addition for darling patterns which can be modified to suit one's own tastes or style.
