McCall's Quilting and McCall's Quick Quilts magazine have published an ebook of modern quilt patterns.
There are three nice patterns in the short book and they would suit even a beginner quilter. There are lots of techniques covered in the patterns, including quilt-as-you-go. I can already think of friends that would like each of these designs!

Baubles and Beads by Susan Guzman

Rainbow Rhythm by Tricia Camp

Lemon Squeezey by Sherri Driver

Three fun patterns that really suit modern fabrics. Lemon Squeezey is a great pattern when you want a quick finish and I can see me doing this one easily with a Jelly Roll - although I think I would spray baste, not pin as the pattern suggests.

The instructions are really clear, as you would expect from McCall's, and who doesn't love adding patterns to their collection?!
