    Hello everyone! My name is Tabby and I am the wife of a U.S. Marine. We are currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan and we are almost 1 yr into a 3 yr tour here. We have 2 boys, ages 11 and 9.

    I took my first quilting class in October of last year and have been hooked! I can't remember how I found this message board but I am glad I did!

    Where is the best place to post pics of fabric for help with a Bargello quilt? I plan on using Barb_Mo's tutorial.

    Thanks and I look forward to meeting you all and sharing in this passion!

    Hello and welcome from Ontario. Use the pictures section to show us your fabrics for your bargello.

    I LOVE OKINAWA!!!!! My favorite place in the entire world!! You are so fabulously lucky. We did 2 tours there!

    Just take the pics and post with your questions, the ones that know will answer, just make sure you ask a question! Don't just say "Here is is"

    Hello & welcome from NE Alabama. Tabby, may I ask where you're from in the States? I'm the Ex of a deceased Army soldier/Viet Nam Vet. We were stationed on TN/KY line at Ft. Campbell KY, lived in Hopkinsville, KY; Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, Landstuhl, Germany, San Francisco lived in Marin Co CA, San Antonio, TX & back to AL where we are originally from. Marines have their own bases, but you may have lived in one of the same States.

    Glad you found us on the QB.com.

    Welcome from sunny North Carolina. Tell your DH thanks for his service and you too for supporting him. I admire all those who go into military - families included because it is a sacrifice for all. You'll find all the help you need here. And if you visit general chit-chat you will laugh and cry with the rest of us. These ladies have such a sense of humor - makes my day.

    Sheila,
    We are from Hartville/Lebanon, Missouri. My hubby actually did some job training at Ft. Leonard Wood and my mom lives about 30 minutes from there in Lebanon. We have been stationed in Jacksonville, NC twice for 3 yrs each time, this is our second tour to Okinawa, and we have been stationed by Kansas City, MO. That is where we were before comign here. The Marines don't really get any of the fun duty stations like Germany and England, lol!

    Pam, while it isn't my favorite place by far, it is growing on me. This is our second tour here.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Yes, Lebanon is out the back gate of Ft. Leonard Wood. We were there 5 yrs, but didn't travel much while there. The different military posts are so scattered & no idea where you'll go next. That was always unnerving until we actually knew where we'd be going. I hated Germany the first year, but after we started camping & traveling it was fun & interesting. We went to Venice, Italy, France, Luxembourg, & Holland. It's nice because we met so many nice people everywhere we went there.

    I'm sure there are lots of neat places in Japan. You'll have to post pics for us to see points of interest you'll visit. Thanks.

    Welcome from Crump, TN. It is a small world isn't it. You are in Japan at this moment and I am in Tennessee. We have members in many, many countries. I am glad you happened upon the quiltingboard. Pass the website around to your friends there so they can enjoy a flavor of home too.
    If you have some spare time and want to put your feet up for awhile put Bargello in our search field. So many pretty Bargello's to look at and read about. I just love them. Welcome, enjoy.
