    Forget-Me-Not Quilt Presentation
    Katherine and Gaynor, along with several other parents of quilt recipients, visited Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice on July 12th. They presented the Forget-Me-Not Quilt - quilted by Mary. This quilt is to be used in the Forget-Me-Not bereavement suite. Here are some photos of the day:

    Thank you to everyone involved with this special quilt :)


    Gaynor's tour of the UK
    Gaynor did a whistle-stop tour of the UK over the last 2 weeks, some of which was on LoveQuiltsUK business:

    Katherine and Gaynor got together at Katherine's house in Lincolnshire to allocate fabric to forthcoming quilts for the next 5-6 months.

    They successfully trashed Katherine's house once again!







    Gaynor also met Magda, a long-time supporter of LQUK, at her home in Glasgow. LQUK had accumulated a fair amount of fabric that was unusable - mostly pillowcases that come with duvets that we purchase for the backs of quilts. Magda is linked with a project in Poland that makes comfort pillows for children and adults, so it was a good fit to pass this fabric on to her. Thank you Magda, and good luck with the project.

    Here is a picture of Gaynor and Magda:



    Gaynor has also been touring the Ponden Mill shops of Northern England taking advantage of their 70% off childrens' duvets sale!

    Thank you all for your donations this week - we have been spending on duvets lately which we use for quilt backings.

    Dress-down day
    Last, but certainly not least, we would particularly like to thank Christine Lyall who nominated LoveQuiltsUK as the charity for her company's work dress-down day. Christine raised £287 - a magnificent total, thank you so much, Christine! :)
