If you are a beginner with a little sewing experience and want to expand your horizons then this is your quilt kit. The kit comes with all the material needed including backing and batting. It's small enough to do buy hand if you don't have or don't want to use a sewing machine.
It's not a forgiving pattern so you do need to follow it precisely in cutting and sewing or the pattern will not come out right. If you take it slow I don't think an advanced beginner will have any problems.
If you want a Kit that comes with everything but the needle this is it. If you want a Kit that has a little of everything, patchwork, straight sewing and appliqué this is it! The directions are easy to follow. Some tricks to the appliqué... First I starch the material and I make extra copies of the appliqué pattern then I chalk the appliqué pattern turn it over and finger press it down when you release there is the pattern!
I've done several of these. They make Great gifts. Hint: I also put a sleeve on the back to assist in hanging. If its a new bride gift I also include a small dowel with end balls (easily gotten at a hardware store) and cup hooks for hanging!
This Greenfield Kit may not be for a beginner. Although this kit has easy to follow directions and comes with all material and batting needed(There's even a little extra if you make a mistake in cutting) you do need to be precise in sewing or the star wont come out right. This is small enough to do by hand or machine. There are several good U-Tube or E How videos about sewing triangles and "Texas Stars" to help is you get stuck but again I would not suggest this one for a beginner.
I love Greenfield kits and this one is no exception. The kit has easy to follow directions and comes with all material and batting needed. There's even a little extra if you make a mistake in cutting. IT DOES NOT COME WITH A NEEDLE!! There are several U-Tube videos about sewing on wool. These give you tips and needle suggestions. I tried several before I found one I liked for hand sewing. If you want to sew it using a machine I would use clear thread with a small appliqué stitch.
