I am faily new to quilting and ready to move on to something a little more challenging than squares. Does anyone have a good site where I can learn the basics of triangles, etc.?

This is a good site for learning the basics of triangles. If you become a premium member, you'll gain access to the digital version of Easy Quilts magazine.  Every issue has one or two basic quilting lessons in it.  You'll also have access to QNN videos that offer instruction at all levels.

Don't forget to post questions with us if something comes up that you're unsure about.  Happy quilting!

You can also check out youtube.  You can find lots of videos on that site.

If you like learning from books at your own pace, Harriet Hargrave & her daughter (Carrie, I think) have done a series of books called Quilter's Academy - books 1, 2 & 3 are out already with one more planned.  They walk you through skills starting with the basics, lots of photos, projects & clear explanations.  Alex Anderson also has some good beginner books but I think the Hargrave books have more to them.  And as Nancy said, if you have a premium membership, the Easy Quilts Magazine & QNN TV are great resources.
