    welcome from OK.
    The #1 book I always suggest to NEW quilters is the Fons & Porter book "complete quilter's guide" http://www.amazon.com/Quilters-Compl...9074070&sr=1-6

    It has it ALL from the first shopping trip to the binding and beyond. If you can find it Spiral bound that is best as it can lie flay while you work from it.

    Have fun!

    I am self-taught and was told to start out with this book:

    http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Eve...4&cm_mmca2=pla

    The Tam's Patch pattern is pretty easy and is will teach you some good techniques. Prepare to be hooked! :-)
