Easy Quiltmaking?

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical that this could be done. I've never before in my life thought that I would ever want to even attempt a quilt. Then this book came along:

I got it just a couple of days ago, and now I'm kind of obsessed with it. This book actually lays out the steps for making a quilt in a managable way. They show you the tools you'll need, and 12 different patterns to try, at different skill levels. I find myself looking through my stockpile of fabric saying, "Hmm... that could work!" I imagine making a quilt filled with cute fabrics showing all the things I love (teapots, boston terriers, cupcakes, pirates, etc..)

First I think I'll try something a bit easier though; I have 2 fabrics I uncovered last night, and I'm going to see how they might look together with some "neutrals" thrown in. (to me, I think a "neutral" might translate into just a plain color, with no pattern. At least for this one anyway!)
This is definitely going to be a slow process- no instant gratification felting here; but I think it could totally be worth it. Wish me luck!
