The book that I've been using to teach myself quilting is The Weekend Quilt by Leslie Linsley. It's out of print, but you can find copies pretty cheap online at either amazon or abebooks.com (a good resource for oop books). I've made two full size quilts and a baby quilt so far, and the easier patterns tend to be pretty forgiving to the mismatched seams and general unwillingness to line up perfectly that has gone along with at least my newbie quilterness. It has nineteen different patterns and while I don't agree with most (or any) of the color choices used in the pictures, the patterns are easy to follow, adapt, and they give you lots of techniques to speed up your quilting. If you put your mind to it, you could probably get one done in a weekend, as the title seems to suggest. I've got a bid on the sequel, More Weekend Quilts, on ebay, (it was $1) so I'll let you know if it's as good, later.

I keep boxes of beautiful dreams
And late at night
When no ones in sight
They come out and whisper to me - J,LC
