    If you are nervous about cutting..invest in one of those quilting gloves that fOns & Porter wear on their show. Protect your hands whenn using the rotary cutter. It can be scary.

    I learned to qult by choosing a pattern from Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth. She is the queen of the 5" square!

    Have fun with our hobby!

    Welcome from Southern California! Sure wish we lived closer - I would have you come over and help you cut your fabric. A friend of mine was that way, she was always afraid to make the first cut, so she would come over, because I have a cutting table which is high enough to be comfortable and we would set up the fabric and she would cut it. Sounds to me you need a quilting buddy. Don't be afraid of making a mistake, we have all made plenty of them. The important part is having fun doing it.

    Hello and welcome from Leicestershire in the UK. It can be daunting cutting fabric for the first time (and especially if you are left handed like me), but if you take your time you will be ok. I started going to a quilting course in June to learn the basics and take each step from there. It's really worth it to learn the basic skills plus its really good to learn about the different blocks that can make up a quilt. I'm addicted now and go to my class once a month. Everyone on here is so helpful and supportive too! Good luck and happy quilting.

    Welcome from Andrews, NC. Have you asked your quilt shop for help? I own a quilt shop and I help people all the time. they come in with a question and we have a mini class on the spot. Quilters love to help one another.
    My best advice is to jump in there and do it.
