News 19 Jul 2020 - 31 Aug 2020



Hello everyone, we hope you are having a pleasant summer despite the COVID restrictions!

We first must pay tribute to our quilters who have been very hard at work clearing the backlog from our pause during lockdown. They have done an absolutely amazing job and we are lucky to have every single one of them. Thank you ladies!

Our designers have also been hard at work recently with a lot of new patterns hitting the files section of our Facebook group. Also, thank you to Clare Bray who secured permission from Transport for London to chart patterns for the London Underground.

Washing squares
We have asked stitchers for a long time now to wash their squares (and iron them out just after washing) before sending them in. Please could you start to do this if you haven't before - even if your squares doesn't look dirty - to account for shrinkage as well as cleanliness. We know some are nervous about doing this, but remember - your square will be laundered many times when it is part of a quilt! For full details see our Stitching directions page. Please also check your square carefully for dirty hoop marks!


Square News
We have received 320 squares since our last update! Many thanks to all those who stitched them, what an amazing amount of work. We are so grateful for your continued support

    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 :)
