Quilts from the Bluffs November Quilt Day

November has arrived and looks like it has brought some cooler weather with it.  Sounds like the perfect weather to be quilting with friends.  We will be meeting this Saturday, November 8, at First Christian Church, Council Bluffs.  We meet on the lower East side of the building in room C1 from 9:30am - 3:30pm.  It is easier to park around back and enter through the East doors (look for the signs).

We will continue to work on an assortment of quilt kits and finish up as many as we can.  I will have quilts ready to pin and quilt as well.

If you are working on a quilt that needs backing, binding, batting or something else, please let me know.  I will try to find what you need and bring it with me.

Charmed for Charity

Our evening Charmed for Charity group meets this Thursday, November 6, at Cut Up & Quilt quilt shop at 6:00.  Stop by and help cut 5” squares, kit them up, or sit down and sew one up.

The next afternoon group meets on November 19 from 1:00-3:00.

Quilt Marathon 2015

Quilts from the Bluffs will sponsor our first Charmed for Charity Quilt Marathon.  We will meet on Friday, January 23 from 5:00-9:00pm and come back on Saturday from 9:00-5:00.  That’s 12 hours of quilting in two days.  How many charm quilts can we make in that time???  I can’t wait to find out.  We want to pack the room so spread the word to all your quilting friends.  We also plan on feeding you well.  Just bring your sewing machine and the rest will be supplied.

Quilt Deliveries

We have delivered 374 quilts so far this year!  That’s two more than last year and we still have two months to go.  This shows what a busy group we have been this year.  Thank you so much!!

Hope to see everyone on Saturday!
