In honor of our retreat, I have written a little poem to celebrate our quilt retreat theme.  I am sure many of you can relate.

July 2014 Quilt Day

We just got back from an exciting Independence Day celebration with family in Kansas City.  I have never seen so many fireworks on one street in my life!  But everyone escaped uninjured and we had a great time.  Hope you also spent time with family and friends. 

Saturday we will be gathering to work on Tumbler Block quilts at First Christian Church, Council Bluffs, from 10:00 - 3:00.  We meet on the lower level on the East side of the church.  Follow the signs from the lower North East doors.  The tumbler squares are already cut out for you so just come and sew.  They go together quickly and are lots of fun.  We will be using both 6 1/2" and 9 1/2" blocks.

If you would like more information or have questions about the group or what to bring, please email me at qftbluffs@gmail.com.

I did a count of our quilts so far this year and we have delivered 144 and have 76 on hand ready to deliver.  That makes our half-way total for the year at 220!!  That is amazing.  Way to go, ladies!!!

Quilt Retreat - "Quilt Addiction"

There is one more month left to get your quilt retreat registrations in.  August 9 is the deadline.  We have five openings left.  I have attached the form.  You can mail it or bring it to quilt day with a minimum of $25 deposit.

Reminder to those who have registered but have not paid your full balance, ALL PAYMENTS are due in full by August 9.

We are starting to make plans for the fun event and we know it will be a great time!!

UFO Challenge

We are halfway through our 2014 UFO Challenge for those who have signed up.  As a group, we have completed about a third of the projects we planned on finishing this year.  I say that is a great success!

If you signed up but have not updated us on your projects complete, please email me with the name of the projects you have finished or post to our UFO Challenge FaceBook group.

See you on Saturday!!
