    :roll: Hi everyone, I am new to this site and sorta of new to quilting, a friend of mine showed me a few easy quilt blocks to do and now I am hooked...

    A little about me: My name is Robin, I am a single mom of one very wonderful teenage daughter, and when I have time I love to sit a quilt.
    I would love to find new and easy quilt patterns to try out so if any one has any that you think a beginner might could do please send them my way.
    Look forward to chatting with some of you and being apart of such wonderful company.

    Welcome to the board from Illinois.

    If you have not seen http://www.quilterscache.com/ you might want to check it out. All the patterns are ranked by skill level. It's a good place to find some blocks you like.

    Hi Robin, welcome to the board. Be sure to check out the Pictures section here. Even though some of those quilts might be for more advanced quilters, it will give you ideas for the future.

    You might enjoy the effects of a disappearing 9 patch. What you do is create a 9 patch, then cut it down the middle from top to bottom and left to right. Then you reposition the blocks to create a different design. There are pictures at this link: http://quiltsatcs.blogspot.com/2007/...-tutorial.html

    Quilter7,
    Thanks for the quilt block I think I might try making this block, it looks and sounds like something I might could do.

    Hello, Georgia,
    I too am new to quilting. I am grandmother of 2 cuties and love to create patterns and put the colors together. I live in Dalton, Ga. Just thought you might like to know someone else nearer.
