     Hello everybody!  My name is Michelle Johnson and I am from Cortez, Colorado.  I have always wanted to learn how to quilt, and a lady that i worked for quilted.  She showed me some of her books that she had and took me material shopping.  My first quilt was a double nine patch.  I have been hooked ever since.  I have even come up with my own designs.  I draw them out first and go from there.  Other quilts I have made is pinwheel, trip around the world reversable quilt and a few lovers knots.  Just thought I would give you and idea of a few quilts I have done and I have a lot more I would love to make.  Thank you for your time in getting to know me and I hope to get to know many of you as well.  I am also married and my husband doesnt mind going with me to buy material for the quilts I want to make.

     Thank You,

          Michelle

Barbara, thank you for welcoming me to the club.  When I can find some or some pictures I would to show them to you.  I'm looking forward to some helpful advise also.  Sometimes that does help.  I have had to teach myself after and even during the first quilt.  But the ones I have made and given away the people have loved.  So I must be doing something right.  Michelle

Welcome Michelle,

  I will be going through Cortez a couple times this coming year.  My Mother ownes 5 acres of property between Monticello  and Blanding.  On top of Devel's canyon Gorge.

I go over to Durango and Silverton every time we are down there.   I try to put several quilts each year in the Silverton Quilt show in September.  If you have never been, you should check it out. I think that it is the second weekend in September.

I think we are going to ride the train to Silverton this year.   We will most likely spend a day at Mesa Verde. We have a Gentleman that we take care of that is mentally impaired, and he said that he would like to go. 

I hope that you enjoy it here as mush as we do. I look forwared to reading your posts

Wendy
