    I am in the process of trying to begin my first quilt. I was given the advice that the yellow brick road pattern would be good for a beginner quilt. I can't find this for the life of me!! Can someone please help point me in the right direction to get a pattern for this.

    Thank You!!!!

    The link below is wonderful.

    Three patterns I would suggest would be:
    Railroad Track
    Basketweave
    or Nine Patch

    Good luck, have fun! (and don't hesitate to ask more questions)

    You'll have to go to your local LQS for the Yellow Brick Road pattern.
    It's an easy pattern. I like it!

    There are many free, easy patterns you can find online. I'm sure if you just put in a Google Search, you'll find them.

    Also the blocks that Joan posted are good too!

    This is a very easy quilt to make, from a book called Happy Hour. It has a number of beginner quilts - this one is called Triple Treat Petite. This is one that is on my bed right now. The picture isn't a very good one and the colors look a bit washed out, which they aren't. Hope this helps you out.

    When you put a nine patch and a snowball togather you will get a neat design.
