I would suggest you get hold of a book on beginners quilting (try your library if you don't want to buy one), and have a go at a cushion cover or bag/something smallish first. Most good beginners books will have a good beginners project in them too.

Also it will help you with deciding what "equipment" you need to start off.

Other than that, try to source a fabric shop where you can buy "fat quarters", ie 1/4 of a yard of material - that way you can buy a few different colours/patterns without spending a fortune.

Can't offer any more advice I'm afraid, I bought material and a book but never got any further!!!

Hmmmmm, my mum's in the south.

I can ask next time I speak to her what she suggests though.
