Any recommendations for a beginning quilter?  Sites with directions?

 I've looked in my files but the majority of those I think will be a little
too much.

Hi Cindy, besides looking online do you have the book, "My First Quilt
Book," by Carol Doaks?  I'm sure I learned about this book on this
group several months ago.  I found a used copy on Amazon and it's like
a quilters bible with all very basic block patterns and how to cut
them instructions.  It's perfect for a beginner, which I'm one of
too.  I also found if you go to Youtube, there are hundreds of online
videos showing how to cut, sew, stipple, bind....you name it, for
quilting.  I've found those really helpful to see the process done
like that.  You can watch it over and over until you know how to do
it.  Just type in the search box what you want to learn, and there
will be several choices to view.  Donna
