    My daughter wants to make a quilt for her son who will be 18 this year but she is new to sewing and quilting. Is there a good pattern without too many pieces???? I have been going through my patterns and kind of thought of a nine patch. What do you think?

    I usually start friends off with just sewing 6 inch blocks together with various fabrics. That way it is easier to match corners. But there is also the Turning 20. There are so many to choose from. And it depends on the variety of fabric at hand.

    Yelllow Brick Road is easy, too. My daughter's first quilt was Take 5.

    I did a log cabin when I took my beginner class using strip piece method. It was easy and there are so many ways you can put the units together.
