These kits are a little different from others you might purchase. Like other kits, they contain beautiful fabrics for a fantastic pieced design, but wait, no pattern… Surprise - that is because the pattern arrives, via email, on the first day in 2017 that 6”, or more, of snow falls on Quilters Corner in Finleyville, PA! If we do not get 6” in a single day (truly my hope - have I mentioned I’m not really a fan of snow?), the pattern is released to those with kits on February 14th. The kit is offered in three different colorways, at a very reduced price until the snow falls (or until we run out of kits!). Our Snow Day Surprise kits make the stormy weather far more fun! You will be the one inside blissfully stitching away!
The 2017 quilt is inspired by a quilt from the mid 1800’s. Like quilts of that era, the piecing runs to the edge of the 62 7/8” x 62 7/8” piece. If you would like to make a bigger quilt we offer border kits - if possible, these kits should be ordered when you place your quilt order, as the fabrics for additional piecing, and inner and outer border are coordinated with your piece! Bordered quilt finishes 79 ½’ x 91 ¾”.
Check out the options below and place your order - the supply is far more fleeting (yes, we do run out) than flurries in Western PA!
2017 QC Snow Day Surprise kit color options ~ kits include background, piecing prints and binding fabric
Winter - historic style fabrics in rich colors - $29.95
Springtime - lovely softer colors - $29.95
Batik - luscious batik prints in a full range of color - $39.95
Border kits are offered to compliment the 2017 Snow Day quilt kits. These will help you make a larger quilt if you would like. Border kit - $47.25 (any color option)
Backing is also offered for the kits. This is regular width yardage, in a beautiful coordinated print that requires one or two seams (depending on quilt size) to make the back.
Backing Kits (without borders) - $36.95 (backing for batik kits will be beautiful complimentary cotton, but not batik, as it is very hard to quilt through two layers of batik)
Bordered Snow Day quilt backing - $65.95
- If you are ordering these kits as gifts please let us know so we can include a small information card with the project. Also, the pattern will be emailed to the address used to order the kit, unless otherwise noted.
- If you would like to special order a kit for the 2017 kit after the pattern release you will be charged the regular price of $85.50 for the winter or springtime version and $95.50 for the batik version!

Kits for the Quilters Corner 2015 Row by Row block are available for a limited time. Mary Beth's
(8” x 36”) design takes a Pittsburgh view of this year’s Row-by-Row H2O theme. A view of a bridge that is! The design is pieced with a bit of appliqué added. (This item is only available as a kit. The pattern will not be sold separately.)
The second half of our newest block-by-block appliqué series quilt is ready to share with everyone. Birds and Boughs features the birds of western Pennsylvania in foliage reminiscent of that which would have been drawn in the mid to late 1800's. Or at least the boughs are what I would have drawn back then! Each appliqué block is framed with a pieced border, then they are set with sashing and a final border. The entire series includes twelve 15" x 15" block kits, four bonus patterns and setting directions. When worked as we have planned the quilt will finish 97" x 97". Your block kits will include appliqué fabrics and patterns - you add background, stem and setting fabrics. The fabrics in your kits will be the same, or similar, to those used in the original blocks.
