    Welcome to the world of quilting. You and your wife did a wonderful job. To aid with cutting use a rotary cutter, mat and acrilic ruler. Also a quarter inch foot is nice for the sewing machine. Thank you for your serice to our country.

    I second this. I learned this way and used the rail fence book to teach several others to quilt.

    Welcome to the board from Spring, Tx. Looks like they've already told you about both strip piecing and using an acrylic ruler with that rotary cutter. Hope you're using a cutting mat under that rotary cutter. There are a lot of beginners tutorials online as well as some great beginner books. Looking at the tutorials here will be quite helpful. No! You do not have to individually cut a bunch of squares - isn't that great news. Happy quilting and you can learn a lot here!

    perhaps you didn't have the matt that you need to use the rotary cutter. One quilt should not have dulled the blade. Great job on the quilt and thank you for your service
