    Hey there everybody. I enjoyed reading all of your hello posts.
    Like Kathie, I too live in NorCal. I'm really from Kansas City but I'm in the Air Force and am stationed way out here near San Francisco.

    I just started quilting a little over a year ago and new that it was the craft for me. I take my sewing machine on TDY's (tours) with me. The boys I work with laugh but I've made 7 quilts already while they just sit around late at night and watch movies! I'm hoping my mom will buy me EQ6 for Christmas so I can get crazy with the patterns!

    I look forward to hearing more about you and your projects. ;-)
    Cheers,
    Jill

    Hi! Tell mom we were separated at birth and that I want an EQ6 for Christmas, too! Ah, well...worth a try! :wink: And you've made SEVEN quilts in a little over a year?? Amazing! Hope you're enjoying 'Frisco. I'm south of you, down near LA.

    Hey Jill:
    Welcome!! I am a newbie as well. Everyone is so helpful here. I am orginally from No Ca. Chico to be exact. I was also in the Air Force. I really enjoyed it. Maybe you should put the guys to work when you are cutting out a quilt. Maybe they will get the bug too!! Anyway Welcome aboard!!

    Hi there, I am a newbie too. Thought I was working fast, now finished 1 wall hanging, 1 quilt (all but) and another just waiting to be sewn together, but had to stop as there is a new babe on the way. That has taken 8 months so take my hat off to you. Mainly I do applique, but next time am going to have a try at something a bit more difficult. Elle in Spain

    Jill....you go girl!! Whip out those quilts...those guys get cold...they will have to eat some batting over that!:))You tell mom that there's not 1 of us that won't write an excuse for you to tell her that w/o that EQ6 you might have unavoidable fabric drooling, endless color planning dreaming...and, the threadafobia...it could be serious!! And the only cure would be to have that EQ6!:0)Any momma bear would not want that!!:))Glad to have you w/the rest of us!! Post some pics of your projects! Skeat
