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!

    Twitter
    We have had a Twitter account for a while with the aim of building up our search engine rankings. However, we keep forgetting to update it! Gaynor has been integrating our Twitter account with our website behind the scenes this week so it should be easier to update from now on. If you are on Twitter, please would you consider following us @lovequiltsuk :)

    Mini Squares
    We have had a number of mini squares sent in this week. Although we do occasionally have too-small squares in which we are saving up to use in their own quilt eventually, we prefer not to take them as a matter of course. Smaller squares mean much more work making up a quilt as much more patchworking is required, so we are committed to 13" x 13" squares.

    Jan, Oklahoma USA - thank you, Jan!
