lol You'll do fine! Just keep the fingers AWAY from the blade of the rotary cutter. And don't stick your index finger out straight and then let your hand slip down the handle either. Not that I've done that. *ahem*

lol I have the 45mm rotary cutter that you don't have to worry about that with but a friend doesn't...ouch I did that twice with hers. You'd think I would have learned the first time.

You'll do great on cutting....measure twice cut once and when you hold the ruler, place your hand in the middle and hold it down with you finger tips not the palm of your hand and it wont move or shift as much.

Haha! I've been quilting for years and I still get nervous about making that first cut in new fabric! That's natural!

When you go to get batting and backing fabric don't forget fabric for binding!
