Quilt Day September 2015

Quilts from the Bluffs monthly quilt day is this Saturday, September 12.  We meet at First Christian Church on the lower level in room C4 from 9:30 - 3:30.  Bring your sewing machine and join us.

This month we are working on a couple different charm patterns (5" squares) as well as string blocks.  We will be pushing to finish up as many quilts as possible for the Fall Project Linus day (don't have a date yet but usually it is in October) so I will be bringing several quilts ready for binding and others ready to pin/quilt.

I am collecting orders for our group T-Shirt and will place the order on September 12.  If you would like one, please send an email with the style, color and size

Short-sleeve t-shirt - $15
Long-sleeve t-shirt - $25
Sweatshirt - $25
Hoodie - $32

Robin's Challenge

Robin Wilson is holding a challenge this month for blocks to help make quilts for children in foster care.  If you would like to help, the link to her blog is below with instructions.  If you are coming to quilt day Saturday, we will have fabric for you to make a couple blocks and we will mail them for you.

2nd Annual Quilt Marathon

Save the date!  We will hold our 2nd quilt marathon January 22-23, 2016.  We meet 5:00-9:00pm on Friday and 9:00-5:00 on Saturday.  This was a great event last year and we are looking forward to another successful marathon.  This is a great event to invite friends and introduce them to our group.  More information to come.
