Baby quilts are a really good place to start to develop your skill. If you are new quilter, I'd highly recommend doing a sampler quilt, taught at a quilt shop. This will give you some ground on which to begin playing with design. I'm not selling anything, if you click on the sample quilt above, you'll see just a sample of a simple quilt you might choose to do.
This box contains panels for baby quilts. The creativity, as far as a quilter goes, is in the border. After your sampler quilt, you make a baby quilt and play with the borders. I bought this for my niece. When I finish it, I'll show you the panel, it's flannel.
