I'm sure I'm missing something simple - your help would be appreciated!

First let's go to Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop and click on "Page Templates" (under 1. Select Template Area)
Make sure that in Blog, Blog Post, Template 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, Tags, Archive, Category, Search and Author, you have Content in the template.
Next, in Drag & Drop, click "Content Area" (also under 1. Select Template Area).
There, for each of the same templates as above, you must make sure PostLoop is present.
Now check your blog page and see if it's showing.
If you created a static homepage and corresponding blog page, make sure that in Dashboard > Settings > Reading under Front page displays you have selected "A static page (select below)" and beneath that, in the top selection list, you've chosen the static homepage for the Front page and in the second list (Posts page), you've selected the blog page you created. Save the settings.
Let us know if this works.

However, if you want the homepage to be a blog page too, just go back to Dashboard > Settings > Reading and change the option from static pages to "Your latest posts". WordPress, which controls this, isn't really designed to have both a blog page AND a homepage with posts, by default, to protect your site from duplications and confusion.
However, if you insist on having both, leave the current setup and implement a plugin called Special Recent Posts on your homepage. This requires the writing of a customized, complex shortcode that you add to the homepage.
If you look through Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop, under Page Templates, you will doubtlessly find the Quickslider in one of the templates. Most likely, under Default or Blog. All you need to do is drag it from Active to Available Sections (left to right sides). Once removed, you won't see it.
