Quilt News
Since our last update, three quilts have been delivered:

Jack's quilt:



Max's quilt:



Matty's quilt:



Big thanks to Joy, Joyce and Melanie respectively for quilting these lovely quilts and to all the wonderful stitchers who have contributed!

Matty's mum has sent the following message: "I was wondering if the ladies who made Matty's very special quilt could leave a little massage about them selves on Matty's website. His site gets made into a book for him to read and it would be wonderful to have a little knowledge of the ladies who took the time to do something so special for him."

Matty's website is here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/matthewhooper

    Quilt News
    There is lots of quilt news to report!

    Faith's quilt has been delivered. Many thanks to all the stitchers and to our new quilter Liz and her family members who assembled it!



    We have also had word that Matty H (Trains), Jack B (Soft animals) and Max P (CBeebies characters/vehicles) quilts have been completed by quilters Melanie, Joy and Joyce respectively, and they are now in the post. Look out for news on them next week.

    Rhea's quilt is also under construction and next on the list is Poppy's quilt (pink theme) which Katherine and Gaynor are currently sorting out.

    We received news this week that Edward Y was extremely poorly, so Katherine and Gaynor decided to elevate his quilt to Emergency status. Fortunately, we already had 9 squares in and we made up the last 3 from our Any Child stash. Our quilter Anna very kindly worked extremely hard to make up the quilt quickly and Edward's quilt was delivered just five days later. Special thanks to Anna for her efforts, Katherine for organising the squares and fabric at short notice and also to Pascale who rushed her two squares directly to Anna for us.

    Edward is now at home, but he is still very poorly. Many thanks to ALL the stitchers who have contributed towards this quilt.




    Square News
    Since the last news update two weeks ago, we have received 41 squares! It is amazing how many squares are flooding in now - thanks so much to all of you, and also to Katherine who spends so many hours photographing them and uploading them to the website for us.
