    Hi, I'm Bob and I have the quilting bug.

    Hi, I'm Bob and live in Jefferson City, MO. I took early retirement and was bored and looking for something to do. One of my neighbors is in her 80's and hand quilts. I kept asking her when she would quilt a quilt for me, she said when you can make your own quilt top. She added she didn't think I could. That was three tops ago. I made a lap sized top she quilted, then I have pieced a queen sized top for my bed and two shams to go with it. I took a class and the project was a Disappearing 9 block. I'm currently piecing a Disappearing 4. I have two more projects on the shelf ready to start.

    I made a trip to MSQC before Christmas, but unfortunately Jenny was home under the weather. I bought some material and have ordered more since.

    I'm having a ball with the piecing the tops. We are lucky here to have two small quilt shops in town and they have been helpful, but most of what I have learned have been from the tutorials here.

    Hope I haven't rambled on too much. I look forward to reading through the forums and learning more.

          I Bob from California! I think I've learned everything about quilting through Jenny's tutorials. She's a great teacher.

                Welcome from North Carolina!
                I caught the bug earlier in the fall and have sooo many things I want to try to do. Mostly from the MSQC tutorials. Isn't Jenny just the best teacher!
                Happy piecing!

                            Hi, Bob! I'm from St. Louis. Used to work for the Diocese of Jeff City, so I was up there a lot during that time! I hope you can share photos of your projects, we all love to see what others are doing to give us inspiration.
