    Ok I am ready to start a queen size quilt...
    What would be a easy one to start with.. I am going to do one for each one by girls..They are 24 and 21 and like bright and abstract...I like the blocks that look different shapes. You might can look at sample here..Is this easy?

    yes that would be very easy - it's kinda sorta like a log cabin, only instead of two colors a round it's just one...

    start with a square, sew strips of a color all around the square, then another color,

    Oh, yes, do make that one.

    I can hardly wait to see what fabrics you pick.

    Here's a very similar one called "Don't be such a square". I got it off a board years ago. It has a little 3D effect due to the white strips being cut 1 1/2" and the patterns/colors being cut 2". Each block finishes out at 12". The little center squares are cut at 2 1/2 "
    You can decide the size you want adding more or less blocks and rows.
    Easy, peasy beginner quilt.

    If you want to do a variation on the square, you can do some squares and some rectangles. I did a top a year or 2 ago for my sister. It looks like the rectangles are twice the size of the squares. I can look up the measurements if you're interested. Plus, you need fewer pieces with the rectangles :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Got it on my next post... keep going for a picture :D
