November quilt day will be this Saturday, November 10. We meet from 10:00 - 4:00 in room C1 on the lower level east wing. It is easier to park around back and enter through the lower Northeast doors. Bring your sewing machine and basic supplies. All fabric, thread, patterns are supplied. Everyone is welcome regardless of your skill level. Come and have fun and make some new friends! We also enjoy seeing what you have been working on. Bring your show n tell to share with the group.
We are working on the Arkansas Cross Road Scrap quilt. I am hoping to see some finished quilts this month. If you are planning on being at quilt day and you do not already have a quilt in progress, you may want to see if there is someone you can help on theirs. This is a big quilt and I think lends itself to team quilting! :-) I will also have quilts ready to finish if you would like to help with that.
If you would like a free pattern, visit our blog and look under the Links tab.
Project Linus Drop Site
We are going to be moving the Project Linus Drop Site to the new quilt shop,
303 McKenzie Avenue
Council Bluffs, Iowa
Council Bluffs, Iowa
If you have any questions about this let me know. We think it will be more inviting to bring in your blankets and quilts to a quilt shop and I would encourage you to do that. Of course, you can always bring them to the Quilts from the Bluffs quilt day.
Quilts of Valor Quilt Group
We will be starting a group to make Quilts of Valor quilts in January. We are partnering with the Iowa 4H and are looking for quilters who are willing to mentor one 4H youth to create a quilt to give to a military veteran or active duty personnel. Our first session will be held on January 26 from 10:00-4:00. If you would like to participate, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, email address and phone number. I will have more information soon.
Looking forward to quilting with you on Saturday!
