Ever made a quilt?

Once I finish this weeked with the Crib Mobile I am making I will be making a pillow for my SIL´s son and I will be looking into making a quilt.. I dont know how to do it, so I am looking for a page that will instruct me through the process, though I have a general idea.. I am excited! Ever made one? Pics?
