    Hello, and welcome from Idaho!
    9-patch, rail fence, turning 20, take 5 are all really easy to begin with.

    I think the rail fence is the easiest...I used to think the Log Cabin was, but after initiating a Log Cabin group quilt in our breast cancer group I was informed in no uncertain terms that a Log Cabin was not easy!....well....duh....I thought it was.....
