News 11 Dec 2011 - 29 Dec 2011



Things have been a bit quieter over the Christmas period as many stitchers have held off sending in squares and we have held off posting off quilts until after Christmas. We didn't want anything to be lost in the Christmas post :)


Quilt News
We received a picture of Theo with his quilt:



We also received a picture of Faith L asleep on Christmas Eve under her quilt:



After Theo received his emergency quilt, we had to decide what to do with his original seaside squares. By a strange coincidence, we had an application for a little girl called Isla, also for a sea life theme. With the permission of the stitchers, we have moved some of Theo's original squares to Isla's quilt. Isla is awaiting a kidney transplant, so we have decided to keep the same deadline - 29th February 2012.

We have also had an application for a little girl called Erin for a Cat theme. Erin has a particularly severe form of Cystic Fibrosis and has been in hospital for several weeks including over Christmas. Since we had 14 cat squares already in the Any Child stash, we have decided to make up Erin's quilt early as a semi-emergency.

We have several quilts currently under construction. Bradley's quilt has been completed by Anna, and Blisse's quilt has been completed by Katherine. Both quilts will be posted in the New Year. Additionally, Rebecca is working on Brandon's quilt, Carol is working on Hannah's quilt, Gaynor is working on Erin's quilt and Katherine is working on Jennifer's quilt

    News 04 Dec 2011 - 11 Dec 2011



    Quilt News
    This week we received a photo of Alice B's quilt:



    Two quilts were delivered:

    Alfred O's quilt:



    McKenzie's quilt:



    Thank you very much indeed to all the stitchers for so kindly donating a square to these quilts, and to Katherine, Gaynor and Carol respectively for quilting them. Also thanks to those who donated fabric towards these quilts (Mariann and Lis)


    Emergency quilt
    We were very sad this week to hear that Theo S is extremely poorly, so much so that we decided to send him an emergency quilt this week. He received the Winnie-the-Pooh quilt which was quilted by Katherine a few months back:



    We wish Theo and his family well and we hope little Theo can draw some comfort from his quilt.

    By coincidence, we have had a quilt application for a little girl called Isla for a Sea Life quilt. We will carry over Theo's original signups to Isla's quilt and keep the same deadline. Isla is awaiting a kidney transplant and we feel her quilt should have semi-emergency status with a 3 month lead time instead of a 6 months. If any of the stitchers involved require any clarification, please drop us an email on contact@lovequiltsuk.com. Many thanks for your understanding. :)

    Craft Fayre
    Many thanks to Mrs E Thomas of Swansea (Gaynor's mum) who did a stall at a Craft Fayre in the local library last Friday. She sold knitted items in aid of LQUK. She also took along the World Landmarks emergency quilt (quilted by Joanne) and the Hearts emergency quilt (quilted by Rebecca) to raise awareness. She raised a total of £29. Thank you very much, Elaine :)




    Donations
    We have received this week some squares, fabric and thread - thank you very much to the anonymous benefactor :)

    Also thanks to Helen who has sent us in some small squares. We have collected several too-small squares over the years and we will eventually make them up into a one-off small square emergency quilt :)

    Many thanks to Brenda who has sent us in a metre of Aida.

    Also thanks to those who have sent in cash/cheque/Paypal donations, it is really appreciated. Gaynor has been ordering some border fabrics in time for the 2012 quilts this weekend out of your kind donations :) (See Fabric page for details)
