Snowy Day Surprise Quilt kit

 My friends over at 2 Peas in a Bucket posted a neat quilt kit idea from a shop in PA. 

Snow Day Quilt Kit

Here's the description from the site - ------------------------------------------------------

I know you would never wish for lots of snow (at least those of you who don't ski...), but should that happen we have just the project to keep you happily stitching through the storm!

This coming Monday, the 12th, our 2012 Snow Day Surprise kits will first be available. The kit includes fabrics for a historic style pieced quilt top and binding. 

Like those of the mid 1800's, the 60" x 60" piece is composed of blocks that travel all the way to the quilts edge.  As a new option this year you may order an expanded kit that will include fabric for a pieced inner border and single fabric outer border that will "grow" your quilt to 80" x 80". 

You'll notice there is one important part missing from the kit description - the pattern. That is the surprise part! You purchase your kit now at the amazing price below and then receive the pattern via email on the first day of 2012 that 5" or more of snow falls on Quilters Corner in Finleyville, PA! 

As soon as the pattern is published the 60" x 60" version of the kit becomes $74.95. If we are lucky enough not to get 5" of snow on a single day early in the new year you will receive the pattern on February 14th. Order your kit soon - they fly as fast as the flurries!


As you can see I picked one up, full intention of working on it for me, and then wouldn't you know it,   I get a call to make a quilt for an auction at the church of a friend of mine!   Couldn't have been arranged for me in any better way. 

Now, off to check the weather report..................
