Hi! I am Shelly Cordsen with Expert and I am going to teach you beginning quilting and the only way I can think to teach a beginner is to actually make a quilt and we will be making a baby quilt start to finish, clear to binding and then you will be a quilter officially. First of all we need to start with our basics supplies and for basic supplies you need a cutting mat, you can get some that are 18 inches, some that are 17 inches. I prefer this one just because it is also has an ironing mat on the other side. So I kind of have dual purpose. So having that said we need an iron, you have got a rotatory cutter, there are many brands up there I prefer the Olfa, which is a 45 mm and it is for safety reasons because I can squeeze to bring the blade out and when I let go, it is in good safety. Rulers, a standard ruler is 6.5 x 12.5. There are some that are six. This is a pretty standard good one to get started with. Okay you can buy kits out there for beginning quilters which will include a mat, it will include a ruler and it will include a rotatory cutter which will give you a good start for quilting. Our old standbys you need pins, scissors, needle and thread, fabric of course, tape measure and in our case to teach you how to do machine quilting, you will need some kind of tape. I like shipping tape. There is also masking tape and your feet for your sewing machine and when we get to the sewing machine we will review the feet attachments that are necessary, a quarter inch and a walking foot is very helpful but you can quilt without them.
