welcome from South Carolina! I wish we had a quilt shop that offered quilt classes, but we don't. We do have a Hancock Fabrics that has them ~ I haven't taken one yet. If you have never sewn.. I would recommend practicing straight stitches, cut long strips x 2 and keep sewing rows and rows. And as the other gals have said, watch you tube, get a cutting mat and rotary cutter, and flat head pins. You can probably do a internet search for free easy beginner quilt patterns.
good luck & welcome :) the only quilt I've made was actually a little wall hanging that I didn't bind. I put it in a frame
