Quilts last many years, work with fabric that makes you happy or suits your décor. If you are not sure what to buy leave it till after your first class as I always have spare fabric to work from.
To begin with you will need a minimum of 4 different fabrics: chose a medium sized print that you like, select two plain colours or prints that coordinate with it and a smaller complementary print.
