News 24 Jun 2020 - 19 Jul 2020



Hello everyone!

We are slowly getting back on track after lockdown. Many thanks to those who have sent in their sign-up squares to Kat for the March-June quilts. Many "quilt packs" have gone out to the stitchers already and they are hard at work clearing the backlog. We would also like to pay tribute to and say a massive thank you to the quilters whose sewing machines are red hot at the moment! :)

Also thank you to those who have sent AC squares to Kat and Gaynor - Gaynor is currently working through hers to assign some of them to backfill quilts for September and October.

If you still have a sign-up for March-June (and end July is fast approaching too) please could you get them in this week. Alternatively, let us know if you're unable to get them in and we'll make alternative arrangements :)

    Update 24th June 2020



    We are now taking squares and cards by post again. Please see our Mailing and Contact Details page for full details.


    We have also started sending out quilts made in March 2020 that we were holding during the lockdown period. One of these has already been delivered, with a further twelve in the post.

    We hope to recommence sign-up squares in early July for an end of October deadline.


    Update 18th June 2020



    Hello all

    LQUK is still on pause - while England is opening up a fair bit now, the devolved nations, especially Wales and Scotland are still pretty firmly locked down.

    We would prefer UK stitchers not to go to the post office with their squares at the moment, but we are happy to accept online post. You can do this by weighing your parcel, paying and printing out your postage at home, and posting it straight into a postbox.

    If you would like to send your squares by online post, please email us at contact@lovequiltsuk.com and Gaynor will email you back with full instructions and addresses :)

    Stitchers outside the UK, where lockdown is over and it is safe to go to the post office, please email for the address.
