Quilts from the Bluffs

Quilts from the Bluffs is a quilt ministry associated with First Christian Church of Council Bluffs, IA.  We started in October,2006.

The group is made up of women across the Omaha/Council Bluffs area.  You do not need to be a member of First Christian Church to attend.  We meet the second Saturday of each month at the church from 9:30-3:30.  We meet in room C4 which is on the lower East wing. The lower doors on the NorthEast side will provide the easiest access.

Our quilts are given to organizations in the community that would benefit from a handmade quilt to bring comfort to them.  These organizations include Project Linus, Mercy Hospital in Council Bluffs, Gabrielle's Corner crisis pregnancy center, Children's Square, Open Door Mission, Risen Son, and Nebraska Medicine Pediatric Transplant Unit.  

As of August 1, 2015, we have given away 

2,800 quilts!

We welcome new quilters and we accept any skill level from "I want to learn" to "I'm experienced and would love to share/help others".  All patterns and fabric are supplied.  You just show up with your sewing machine and we will get you working.

We also have a FaceBook page if you want to join in on the discussions there. www.facebook.com/QuiltsFromTheBluffs

Mission Statement:
Quilts from the Bluffs is a ministry of First Christian Church of Council Bluffs, Iowa, designed to show love and support to sick, traumatized, or otherwise hurting individuals in the area with a gift of a new, handmade quilt created by volunteer quilters. We also teach and encourage the art of quilting to interested individuals in the community free of charge.

We accept donations of new, clean cotton or flannel fabric, quilt batting, and thread.  We also accept cash donations that will be used for purchasing fabric and supplies as needed.  Checks should be made out to First Christian Church with "Quilt Ministry" in the notes section.

We also sell a few quilts to raise funds.  Check out our Quilts for Sale page for quilts currently available.
