Checker Distributors 62 Anniversary Open House Chapter 3 - The Giveaways

 62 Anniversary Open House
Chapter 3 The Giveaways
The patterns in the previous post were really fun to look at and while I was standing there admiring them I thought to myself, "wouldn't it be interesting to see just one of these patterns done in 15 different color ways."  I was looking at the blue one (below) by Kathryn Schmidt from Rule Breaking Quilts.

Kathryn autographed this book during Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis.  I can't think of a better time to offer it as a gift to a lucky IHAN blog reader. 

                                 
Hobo Quilts  by Debra G Henninger

This is Barbara holding up one of her quilts during a Schoolhouse presentation during Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis.  Those who attended the Schoolhouse lecture received a sample package of fabrics and one very lucky IHAN blog reader will get that sample package of fabric (pictured below).  The fabrics are so soft and beautifully woven.  There may be enough for a small wall hanging.

              Take 5
By Kathy Brown (Autographed)


(photo taken at Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis)
Take 5 by Kathy Brown was autographed and  given to me while at Spring Quilt Market.  I really enjoyed the quilts by Kathy Brown on the previous post.  The use of five fabrics in the design of a quilt really appeals to me.  How many of us have at least 5 coordinating fabrics in our stash right now that could be used to make one of Kathy's quilts?  I bet many of us....I'm holding up my hand :)

The next three patterns that will be given away in honor of Checker Distributors 62 Anniversary Open House....were all designed by Carolyn Griffin of Far Flung Quilts.  During Spring Quilt Market, Carolyn autographed these beautiful Quilt Patterns and gave them to me.  I know there will be three very happy IHAN blog readers very soon!!!

Carolyn works for Checker Distributor and unfortunately the most recent photo I have of Carolyn....well.....lets just say it would not be fair of me to post it here....out of context!!!  LOL  When I post the most recent photos I have of Carolyn you will know why I'm not posting them here.  She was very generous to offer three autographed patterns to be given away here on the IHAN blog.
Amy Barickman from Indygo Junction was at Checker's Open House as well.  She has been promoting her new book,  Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions.

Amy has autographed a fun Amy Barickman's Vintage Notions tote bag (photo below) to be given away here on the IHAN blog. 

The IHAN blog is  also giving away two copies of Fiber & Fabric Mania! A travel Guide compliments of Checker Distributors!!! 
What do you have to do to win one of these 9 wonderful prizes?  Just leave a comment on any of IHAN's Checker Distributor 62 Anniversary Blog Posts.  That's all....other than leaving your contact information should your comment be chosen by the random number generator.  One comment per post please.  The prizes will be assigned randomly to the winners.
