I have not made these items yet, but I have followed Claudia since she lived in IN and taught us at the quilt shop I worked at. All the kits from Colorway Arts have been of the best value. You will not be disappointed! Her instructions are always based on teaching someone who is a beginner, so anyone can follow and build whatever they choose. I do suggest starting with something easy, to learn the technique. Woodworkers will love this art!
