What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just enjoy the process and don't be afraid to change fabrics if the overall look doesn't work. I sewed the first four rows, then re-evaluated my fabrics, swapped one out and started over and I love the finished look.

Could a beginner do this quilt ?

This quilt has some of the best directions I have ever seen. Click on Kakudo above or http://www.konabay.com/mm5/complimentary_patterns/Kakudo.pdf and print out all the directions. It's made with snowballs and half square and quarter square triangles which are basic quilting blocks. You will need a design wall (mine is a flannel-backed tablecloth tacked to the wall) to lay out the pieces but I really think anyone with patience and care can make this. I had a blast putting it together. The hardest part was picking the fabrics and then matching them to the pattern to figure out which was a substitute for which. Give it a shot!

This could be a confident beginner quilt. The only blocks are 1/2 square triangles and 1/4 squares. The directions are very detailed and easy to follow. http://konabay.com/mm5/complimentary_patterns/Kakudo.pdf
