December 2013 Quilt Day

This Saturday Quilts from the Bluffs will be meeting for our monthly quilt day at First Christian Church, Council Bluffs.  We meet from 10:00-3:00 in Room C1 (lower level).  We will be working on scrap quilts and finishing up quilts in progress.  

As is our tradition, we will be breaking at noon to have a meal together. The main dish will be BBQ Beef sandwiches.  We are asking everyone to bring a side dish or dessert to add to our feast.  We have invited the church staff and our set-up guys as well so bring plenty of food to share.  We will also have a raffle for door prizes including two $10 gift cards to Cut Up and Quilt!  Don't miss it.

UFO Challenge
The deadline is fast approaching to submit your UFO Challenge 2014 list to me by the end of the month.  If you would like to participate, send a list of project names to qftbluffs@gmail.com that you will attempt to complete next year.  I am looking forward to watching everyone's progress next year as we <TRY> to catch up on our unfinished projects.  For more information, click here.

Quilt Deliveries
We have delivered 50 quilts in November...10 to Gabrielle's Corner, 20 to Mercy Hospital, and 20 to Project Linus.  Total 372 so far for the year. WAY TO GO!!

Charmed for Charity
We are beginning a new venture in 2014 called Charmed for Charity.  The sessions will consist of cutting scrap fabric (provided) into 5” squares (charms), sewing the squares into quilt tops, and/or putting squares into quilt kits that can then be distributed to other quilters.  Bring rotary cutter/ruler/mat or sewing machine.  Quilts will be given to Project Linus (juvenile) or Mercy Hospital (adult).  

A daytime group will meet the third Wednesday from 1:00-3:00 beginning on January 15 led by Sondra Michaels and Karen Burns.

An evening group meets on the 1st Thursday from 6:00-8:00 beginning on February 6 led by Jeanine Williams and Rachel Summy.

I will be collecting orders for group shirts.  We have added sweatshirts to the list of styles to choose from.  If you would like one, email qftbluffs@gmail.com the style, size and color you would like.
