Flip Flop Quilt Blocks by Kathie Alyce

I had the good fortune of meeting Kathie Alyce in Minneapolis at Spring Quilt Market last year.  Now she has a book on the AQS Bestsellers list and it is for the pattern I loved, The Flip Flop Block.  Isn't that exciting?  I'm so happy for Kathie.

Here are some pix I took at market of her booth.

This is Kathie demonstrating her template for a shop owner.  I really liked the fabrics she chose for the quilts she used in her booth.  They were bright, fun and contemporary.

 
 

I'm not surprised one bit that her book is on the AQS Bestsellers list.  Not that I'm some sort of wizard, but sometimes I see things that just grab me and I think....folks are going to like that.....and I'm thinking they do!!!  Good to know I'm not alone :)
Guess what? 
If you are you are a lucky IHAN blog follower.....you are going to get a chance to win the autographed pattern, The Flip Flop Block by Kathie Alyce and her template.  The best thing about this pattern is that the skill level reads: EVERYONE.  Now we're talking.....nothing so technical that ya can't make a quilt even when you are having a wild hair day and the Quilt Priest is out of the office.  Gotta love that!
Shhhhh....don't tell everyone.....this is for followers only.  This is one of the great benefits of being an IHAN blog follower.....you have lots more opportunities for winning great prizes :)
I have kept this pattern and template safe here next to my desk in my "went to market" fun prizes to give away.  It has not been touched until today to take this photo.....and I can't wait to see who the lucky winner will be and what beautiful quilt they will make. 
Just leave me a comment on this post for your chance.  I'll do the random number generator thing on Monday, February 21st.  No need to get overly excited and leave 20 comments...one will do.  If you are that excited you can also buy the book and template ....I have hyper linked them in this post :)  If you win, hey.....you can be nice and give it to me.....oh did I just write that?  I meant to say....give it to your dearest friend.....can't blame me can ya?
Smiles,
Kelly

  51. I had you on my google reader, but am now following you with friend connect as well. I adore you for sharing the quilting bug with the 2nd grade. I would love to do that @ my kids school, but don't have the variety or number of quilts to show. I have bookmarked this for future. I love the look of Kathie's Flipflop quilt design. Thanks for the chance to win the pattern & template.
