Not sure where to start:
Annie B here in southern VA.
Moved from Germany with the Army to be close to family in NC and NY. Recently retired Army civilian w 42 years. Moved to southern VA but alas the base closed. Hubby was active duty but now serves as a civilian.
Started quilting in Germany and now in Va. Assignments have included Germany 3 times, Italy, Puerto Rico, NY state (upstate and downstate) and Texas.
Was not starting any new projects until I finished my UFOs but saw the Mystery Quilt 7 and could not resist. Also saw Bonnie Hunter's MQ but YIKES have to pass.
Hi Annie! Nice to meet you! Yes, there is a huge difference between the mystery quilts on this site (quick and easy) and Bonnie Hunter's giant scrappies! Hope we'll get to see pictures of some of your quilts.

I started quilting in Germany as well. Patch Barracks had a quilt shop on post and I was a member of the "Black Forest Quilters" guild. I went to Northern VA after Germany and now live in Maine.

Hey. I always intended to visit the craft shop in Stuttgart but never made it even tho I was only an hour away in Heidelberg. We too had a great shop - the people were awesome and taught me well.
Thanks for the welcome.
