HI there! I would suggest first starting with a quilting book from the craft store or the library. There's so  much information to try to get in one post, but the most basic items for quilting include a rotary cutter, cutting mat, and ruler. You might even want to take a basic quilting class at your local craft store.

Here's a simple pattern you might look into:

Pretty much any quilting book you find should have a good couple of chapters on starting out, but I am partial to Donna Kooler's Encylopedia of Quilting (also her Encylopedia of Crochet and of Needlwork are great too!)
