    I took advice from ladies running a quilt shop and bought a pattern called "Strip Cocktail." It wasn't fool proof for a beginner like me, but pretty close. (I didn't have such consistent 1/4" seams). It made up quite beautiful as the jelly rolls were all color/pattern compatabile. Good luck. Oh, the 3rd quilt I did was "The big block quilt." That's really fun as it goes together quickly; it's a modern, contemporary look.

    I second this!! Her books are the best I have for clear and concise directions - and they are illustrated every step of the way. Maybe you could try a simple sampler so you can try out a few different blocks.

    Good luck and welcome to the world of quilting!!
