Isn’t this quilt adorable!  Julie S. recently showed us her latest finish.  As I recall she said the pattern name was Keep Me.  She said she calls it her “snow women quilt.”
She said the fabrics for this quilt came from her stash.
This is the first time Julie has used buttons on a quilt.  Each block has a button somewhere.  Check out these cute little buttons on the hat.  This quilt is so much fun to look at!

  • Don’t forget the Sale this week.  Special Christmas Fabrics are 25% off.  All other Christmas Fabrics and everything else in the shop are 20% off.  Stop in today!
  • Vickie S. will have a One Block Wonder class on Monday, December 15th from 10:00-4:00.
  • We had a teacher’s meeting the other night and I’m looking forward to all the new classes and BOM’s planned for the first of the new year.  A new Seasonal Sampler is planned.  The new Sampler starts in January.  This is a Seasonal sampler and you can sign up for Winter, or Spring, or Summer, or Fall.  Or you can sign up for them all.  A new Applique BOM is planned, as is a Modern BOM.  There will also be a Make It and Take It project planned each month.  Tomorrow I’ll show you the project that Marilyn has planned for January. 
  • Mark your calendar now for the Heart of Winter Tour on February 7th.   The bus will take you to four different shops.  Lunch and dinner are included. 
  • New classes are also planned.  Please check your supply list before coming to class and don't forget your rulers, cutters, mats, etc. 
  • New Year's Day SALE:  There will be a sale on New year’s Day from 12 noon to 4 p.m. 
Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Good Morning! I love the snow women quilt and tried to find the pattern online to no avail. If possible, would you be able to ask the quilt maker the actual name of the pattern, so that I may look for it. Another note, love your blog and read it often. Was wondering if your store has an online website to purchase some things that I have seen in the past. I've tried to find it, however, the searches always lead me back to your blog. Thanks for sharing! Carmela

Chris (owner) is trying to find out the details for this quilt. Please call the shop and let her know you are interested and she will call you back when she gets the information.

Please could she post here - I am in New Zealand so calling shop is not feasible -

If you contact Julie Sanford, would you please ask her to post the pattern information on the "24 Blocks" Facebook page? She's created quite a lot of interest for this pattern and a great many quilters are asking.
