What a Flake!

I confess I'm infatuated with this Snow Flakes mini runner project.  In fact, I'm nearly done with a second one.  A couple of you asked me to share with you how to make the runner, but I can't really do that because it's someone else's design.  I CAN do a couple things though.  First, you can call the Quilt House and ask about ordering the pattern and possibly the kit.  They made these kits up for a quilt show I attended and they may have some left.  Their phone number is (775) 782-8845.  And while you're ordering that, they also have the pattern and button pack for the Christmas Pine pillow I made last year.  You may want to add that to your order.  If you click on the link (where it says "Quilt House" above), you can see the pillow they made from the pattern.


The other thing I can do is have a giveaway of the pattern and a kit I made up that's identical to the fabrics I used in this one I'm working on.


There's a little bit of orange wool for the noses, but the rest is cotton.  There's enough of the blue fabric to use as a backing and binding if you're careful.  You just have to add the batting and embroidery floss.

I don't think I'll post tomorrow night because I have things I want to get done around my home, so I'll give you the next two days to comment on this post, telling me you'd like a chance to win the pattern and kit.  And this one is only open to those of you in the US--sorry about that for the rest of you, but it gets a little more expensive and complicated when shipping out of the country.  Friday night around midnight Pacific Time I'll pick a winner and announce the winner on Saturday's post, so come back then to see if you've won.

Good luck!

I love both of those patterns! I have really been thinking about the snowmen. I have a fixation, obsession, whatever! So does my daughter!

Oh-I would LOVE to win the kit and pattern. Thanks so much for the chance. I will miss your post tomorrow. I "share" a cup of coffee with you every morning. If we weren't on opposite coasts I would invite you to lunch and pick your brain on how you get so darn much done!

I'm also one of your daily readers...not quite on the east coast but definitely too far to invite you over for coffee, which I think would be tremendous fun!
Love the runner AND the pillow!

I love that little snowman table runner. It would make a perfect little gift for my DIL and it looks easy enough to complete in time for Christmas. Perfect for a table top while sipping hot chocolate - or perhaps a hot toddy. :-)

Your Snowflake runner is darling and I thank you for the opportunity to enter your giveaway.

Susan said...

Kim, I read your blog every day, although I don't often make comments. You're really generous with your giveaways but I usually don't enter as I think more frequent commenters should have more of a chance. But this pattern is just too cute to pass up and that runner would look perfect on my sister's table!
