    I think Disappearing 9 patch (or D9P) is a really easy fun one to make. If you're buying fabric, you'll need at least 8 fabrics (I use one color in 2 blocks).....but you'll need about the same amount of total fabric as if you'd made a regular 4 patch or 1 patch, even!!!!

    I love the look of a D9P. It gives such a cool effect.

    How about a Turning Twenty? There are different variations of it, such as Turning Twenty Around the Block. They are made with fat quarters. Many quilt shops carry the Around the Block leaflets. Here is a link so you get an idea of what they look like. They are very easy!

    I taught a beginning class many years ago, the class progect used a ninepatch set with a snowball block. The piecing was simple and it looked great. Very good for scraps, or large prints.

    Patience Corner is one of the easiest but you might find it uninspiring. Attic Window is another easy one - using 3 fabrics. Grandma's Fan is also easy. King's Cross is also easy. Log Cabin is easy as is Monkey Wrench.

    Log Cabin is a good, easy beginner block. Here's a tip: make your last row around wider than the rest by a half inch or more. Then you can trim up your blocks to size with no worries.

    Just Google "Disappearing Nine Patch" for the pattern. This one is super easy, too, and if you lay it out right, you don't even have to match any seams. This is a very easy pattern that makes up super quick and looks great, too. An excellent choice for beginners.

    Disappearing four patch is another one.
