    Hello! I've never made a quilt before. I have helped my grandma tie some of hers when I was younger. I've been sewing for quite a while, but I wanted to learn how to quilt.

    I was wondering if anyone had a link to an easy pattern with very clear directions to help me d my very first project!

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Heather.

    a single irish chain is good because the matching isn't very hard. Good luck, make sure you post a picture of whatever you decide to do.

    Welcome to the board. May try a four patch or nine patch. They are both easy.

    Just decide on a size that is a multiple of 4 or 6. Cut out squares that are one-half an inch larger than your multiple number (4-1/2" or 6-1/2"). Then, sew the squares together using 1/4" seams and voila - a charm quilt. You can have fun putting your fabrics together to make a pattern while you sew them together.

    You will want to buy a few quilt supplies, like a cutting mat and rotary cutter to make whatever pattern you decide on a little easier.
