Me on Chalk Talk WOW

Hi everyone ! I am so happy that today my QuiltCon block is featured on Chalk Talk! So, anyone new stopping by welcome to In The Boon Docks, I am Lisa Johnson, a wife, mother, grandmother, and a member of the West Virginia Modern Quilt Guild. Pink Chalk Fabrics QuiltCon Block Challenge Giveaway was how I became interested in modern quilting. If I had not won this FQ bundle I may never have discovered modern quilting guilds. Which has changed my life in such a positive way.

I was so excited, but I really didn't know what to do with solid fabrics besides using them as sashings, borders, and bindings, who would make a quilt with solid colors. The answer I found was lots of people do and make beautiful quilts. I decided I better find out what the QuiltCon Block Challenge was to complete this journey. I went to the The Modern Quilt Guild and found out a lot about a movement in quilting that was made for me.

And now block #1 - Fractured is being feature on Pink Chalk Fabrics"Chalk Talk". It is all very exciting for me! But if not for that giveaway these blocks might never had come to be here! Thank you for including me in your Newsletter.

I love to shop at Pink Chalk Fabrics. They have great prices, beautiful products, and terrific customer service. If you create something using fabric from this online store make sure you add your project to their Flickr Gallery. You never know where one block can take you! Thank you for stopping by In The Boon Docks come back anytime, Lisa.

Block #2 is my other submission to the challenge.
