Magazine Stardom
We are appearing in the March edition of Popular Patchwork magazine. We would like to thank Bridget Kenningham for her wonderful support of LQ by printing a four page article with many photos of our kids.



If you would like to buy a copy, it is on sale until the end of February in WHSmith or similar newsagents :)

We have already been in contact with 8 new quilters, and hope to expand LQ a bit in accordance with the extra help. Watch this space!


Square News
We broke the 2000 square barrier this week! This is a fantastic achievement and we'd like to thank all our stitchers for their wonderful support of LQUK. It is almost exactly a year since we reached the 1000 square barrier, so a thousand squares have come in in a year. Phenomenal.

The 2,000th square received was Kaye's Tatty Teddy square, but they are all very special! Thank you!



We have received 31 squares this week! Many thanks to all those who stitched them!

    Quilt News

    100 quilts!
    Benjamin S's Emergency quilt was delivered this week and became our 100th delivered quilt! This is great achievement and we would like to thank all involved. Here's to the next 100 quilts!

    Thank you to Anna for quilting Benjamin's quilt. We are awaiting a photo of Benjamin with his quilt.



    Jennifer M's quilt was delivered (Quilted by Katherine)



    We have three quilts that are completed and will be delivered this coming week:

    We have decided to send an emergency quilt for a little girl called Caitlin who is currently ungoing treatment for leukaemia and is having quite a hard time. Caitlin will receive the butterfly quilt which was quilted by Marion. As an emergency quilt, there is no label incorporated into the quilt, so Gaynor has been stitching Caitlin's name on to a small label(kindly sent in by Kaye) and stitching it to the back of the quilt.



    Additionally, Liz R has completed Leroy's quilt and Yvonne has completed Daniel's quilt. Thank you, ladies!

    We have heard that Rhea T who received a quilt from us last summer is not very well at the moment, and we wish her a speedy recovery.


    Trinity Church Craft Fayre
    We would like to thank Zahra and Trinity Church who have raised for us the magnificent sum of £226.40! Zahra held a craft fayre just before Christmas and the total was matched by Trinity Church. We are so grateful for the support, it will help us very much, thank you again!
