    Superhero squares from Poland
    What a brilliant package LQUK received from Poland to start 2019 - containing 111 Superhero Logo squares! There are 40 Green Lantern logos, 33 Captain America logos and 38 The Flash logos if I have counted correctly!

    These squares have been stitched by the Comfort Pillow group in Poland, to help with our efforts to make quilts for this very popular theme. The plan is to put one of each design on each Superhero quilt, to be mixed in with the character designs being sent in by the LQUK stitchers.

    Massive thanks to Magda Pietrzak and Celina Jankowska who led this effort, and also to all the stitchers as follows:

    Maria from Elblag, M.Kusiak, Busia, Cela Ryszard, Grazyna from Kramsk, Aga R, Monika from Chicago, Ela L from Gniew, Lidia C from Krosno, Miroskawa, Kinga M from Reda, Nusia from Srem, Bozena C from Krosno, Kasia from Witoldow, Aga W from Lodz, Ala, Kaisa K Z and Iwonicz, Z, Iwona, Slawek Etk, MB z Murzasichla (hope we've got all those names right)

    A truly SUPER effort by everyone involved, THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!
