I found this aqua fence to hang my quilt on - wasn't someone daring with their paint colour! The quilt top was a cinch to put together, and super speedy because of the large pieces. I think it would be great for a beginner, and actually, the first quilt I ever made was nine patches alternated with large squares - exactly like this quilt in construction, if not design.
I'd love to know - do you find it hard to resist tweaking patterns too, or are you a strictly by the book kind of quilter?

Full disclosure - Fenella provided me with the prints I used on the front of the quilt in exchange for this review. The rest of the fabric came from my stash. The review is an honest reflection of my thoughts on the pattern.
