April Quilt Day

I hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful Easter holiday. I wanted to send out our monthly reminder that Quilts from the Bluffs will meet next Saturday, April 11, from 9:30-3:30 at First Christian Church, Council Bluffs.  We are going to continue working on our Floating Triangle quilts.  I have updated the pattern (attached) since my numbers were a bit off last month.  I think we worked it all out though and everyone is good to go on their quilts.  I will also have quilts that need to be quilted and a few that are ready for binding.

I appreciate everyone's efforts to help to get quilts quilted and binding on.  I know everyone enjoys making the quilt tops but unless they get finished we can't do much with them.  Thank you for your understanding in this and you contributions toward this goal.  We still have quite a backlog of tops but I think we are making some headway.  Let's keep up the great work!

We are starting to plan for this year's quilt retreat to be held in September. This year's theme is PreCuts.  Registration forms will be available in May and, as always, a $25 down payment is due at registration with full payment due August 8.  Just wanted to give you a little teaser.  It is never too early to start getting excited.

This is probably the shortest email I have sent out but I can't think of anything else of importance to share with you.  If you would like more information about this group, please send me an email or call.

I hope to see everyone's smiling faces on Saturday!
