Quilts from the Bluffs Fundraiser 2015

Quilts from the Bluffs is a growing and thriving quilt ministry in Council Bluffs, IA serving the Omaha/Council Bluffs community.  We are a ministry of First Christian Church, Council Bluffs, IA where we meet once a month as a group.  We also have a group that meets monthly at Cut Up & Quilt quilt shop in Council Bluffs.

We began in October 2006 making 17 quilts that first three months of 2006 to over 500 so far in 2015!  We have given around 2,800 quilts to various recipients and our deliveries have grown each year and will continue to do so.

Quilts ready for labels before delivered
Current recipients of our quilts include:

Quilts from the Bluffs survives on donations of fabric, batting, thread and monetary donations to pay for other supplies such as fabric cutters, rulers, pins, cutting mats, etc.  

We have a current need to purchase new labels to attach to each quilt we deliver.  The purpose of the labels is to let the recipient know that someone cares and may potentially lead them to a church if they are searching...Or at least give them a glimpse into God's love in action.



These labels are not cheap and to be able to buy them at the lowest cost possible, we need to order a large quantity.  We have complete faith that we will use these labels over the next ten years.  However, that gives us a one-time financial burden 
and we are reaching out to the community we serve for help.

We are selling four quilts at $50 each to raise money for these labels.  
100% of the proceeds will go towards the labels.  
Checks can be made out to First Christian Church with Quilt Ministry in the notes section.  
This is a tax deductible gift.  

If you are interested in purchasing one of these quilts, please email qftbluffs@gmail.com.  

These are four separate quilts (I know, they look the same) 
and each professionally longarm quilted a little differently.  
They are 35" square--perfect for a baby or toddler and a great gift.
All are backed with the dinosaur flannel fabric shown below.
