    Welcome to the board. Rail fence or a 9 patch are easy blocks. I actually started with a sampler so I learned a lot of techniques on my first quilt.

    I made a log cabin for my first quilt. I took a class and was taught how to use a rotary cutter. Haven't looked back sine. The log cabin is still my favorite!

    Your local quilt shop probably offers classes. That would be a great start...you'll avoid all the trial and error phase and have a great first quilt in a very short time:>)

    Welcome! Good luck with your first quilt. A Log Cabin, Rail Fence, Trip Around the World, 4-Patch or squares of several different fabrics are all good beginner's quilts. Most of all...have fun.

    I agree. I did a huge sampler in a class to start. Learned many things that have helped ever since!
