Seems like a lot of people don't like this pattern. I have made two king size quilts with this pattern and I just started quilting a year ago so I thought it was real simple. My actual first bed size quilt was this pattern. I have used up scraps with this pattern both times and I think it is great for that. I thought the cost was well worth the money and having used it more than once, it has paid for itself. And both quilts look completely different due to the total diversity of fabric.
