    Please don't be discouraged...
    Know that once you do start... accurate cutting and consistency with sewing seams is important.
    You will find a lot of useful info here... and never be afraid to ask a question... quilters are very helpful people!

    Why not try a 9 patch with sashing. Picture of 9 patch which is my favorite block and what I learned on.

    My sister and I each made a quilt cutting a 2and 1/2 inch block out of every fabric in our huge stash and sharing with one another. We didn't really us a pattern just sewed them in 4 patch blocks than sewed them together put prairie points around it and loved it. We fussy cut if we had small objects in the print, like a rose, butterfly, etc the others were just that block squares are easy to work with and you can do lots with them

    Try googling Blooming 9 patch. Just simple squares. You do the design work with the fabrics. They are so neat.

    I know that squares sound easy and boring, but they can look so awesome, just depending on color placement, try a DP 9 or a DP4, you will be surprised how much it takes to make this quilt :D
