    If you are starting to quilt.
    Step 1... find a SIMPLE quilt pattern ... a 9 patch is a very good place to begin. Most beginners needs to start with a 12 inch block
    Step 2... decide if you want a "scrappy" - many colors or a "planned" - only certain colors
    Step 3... decide on what colors you want in your quilt....
    Step 4... Accurately cut out your squares...
    Step 5... sew these squares together using 1/4 inch seam allowance.
    Step 6 ... post pictures to this board so we can ooo and ahhh over your beautiful creation.
