I think the first time I tried quilting was in Girl Scouts. Each girl contributed a block so together we made a quilt that went to an auction or something for charity. There are many guilds and organizations available if you want to participate in such group projects.

Contributing one pieced block is a start, but there are several more things to know if you want to make a quilt from start to finish!
