Quilt News
Marion has completed an emergency quilt for us, that we will keep in stock until it is needed. Thank you Marion and all the stitchers who kindly donated the butterfly squares :)



Erin's quilt has been delivered:



We are putting together an emergency quilt for Benjamin S with squares from the Disney Cars Stitch-a-long. Anna has been working hard on the quilt all week and hopes to post it on Monday or Tuesday.

Katherine has completed Jennifer's quilt and also hopes to post out on Monday or Tuesday.

We have now delivered 99 quilts since 2008, so Benjamin and Jennifer's quilts are in a race to become the 100th quilt! Exciting!

Hannah P, who received her quilt last week, has taken her quilt into hospital with her this week, where she is to undergo an operation. We have received this photo of Hannah with her quilt:

    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.


    Donations
  • Donated fabric was received from:

    Jan, Oklahoma USA - thank you, Jan!

    Thank you to the Higham Piecemakers for donating the wadding for Leroy's quilt!

    Accounts
    Gaynor has been working on finalising our accounts for 2011 and they are now with our auditor, Mrs Jean Powell. We would like to thank Jean for offering her services free of charge to LQUK.

    Gaynor has also worked out that we will be able to claim around £140 in Gift Aid for donations received in 2011. If you have donated, or intend to do so in the future, and think you are eligible for Gift Aid (UK income taxpayer), please contact us. It's as simple as filling in a form, which will cover all past and future donations.
