I've had this book for a long time and finally got around to doing it. I used Red Heart solids in, Aruba Sea, Raspberry, and Aran colors. This was fun to do and I learned some things and improved my stitching ability. Though I don't think I'll do another one of these for a long time. :P I am giving this to a nice couple at our church that deserve to have something nice.

Thanks for the kind words everybody! Those of you who have the book and have yet to complete it, this is certainly worth the effort. Especially if you need practice with front and back post stitches because there are a number of squares that use them.
