I have very limited EPP experience and found the kit very useful. This was also my first time glue basting my shapes and it was so quick and easy.
While I don't think that any EPP projects are quick, this one was a nice length. My skills are not awesome, but they are better than they were when I started.
Since I spent all of that time hand sewing the pieces together it seemed wrong to do the quilting by machine. The hand quilting is pretty simple.
The original EPP Sew Along was intended to produce a mini quilt, but I decided to turn mine into a pillow cover.
