News 15 May 2011 - 21 May 2011



We were very sad to hear that Alicia who received a quilt from us last October passed away on 17th May 2011 at the age of 10. Rest in peace little one x

We have also heard that Abigail who received the Flower Fairy quilt in January 2011 is currently in hospital, we send our best wishes and hope she is on the mend soon. Abby's quilt is brightening up her room at the hospital :)

More Magazine Stardom!
Issue 152 of Cross Stitch Crazy magazine is currently on sale and we are Club of the Month! Very many thanks to Cross Stitch Crazy magazine for selecting us and doing a lovely little article about LQUK. Thank you also for the prize which includes some Tetley tea and shortbread, as well as several lovely cross stitch kits.

Don't forget we are appearing in Popular Patchworking and World of Cross Stitching magazines until the end of this month. Gaynor bumped into Katie from Popular Patchwork magazine at a quilting show in Malvern on Saturday - it was Katie that set up the article that has brought us so many offers of quilting help. Thank you very much again, Katie, we owe you a debt of gratitude!

    Quilt News
    This week, Katherine completed Scott's quilt, and it has been delivered:

    Photo of Scott Ws quilt


    Anna has completed Toni's quilt and it has been delivered, but we have not yet received a photo. Thank you to all who stitched for Scott and Toni!

    Quilts in progress at the moment are: Lotty's quilt (Katherine), Tilly Lucy's quilt (Gaynor) and Brooke N quilt (Mary)

    We continue to receive offers of quilting help - thank you very much to all and welcome to LoveQuiltsUK :)


    Quilts opened/closed
    We re-opened to new applications this week.

    Lilly Mae S's quilt was opened and closed (Butterflies, Flowers and Dragonflies)
    Jayden K's quilt was opened (Toy Story characters)
    Edward Y's quilt was opened (Sea Life)


    5 sign-up guideline
    Katherine and Gaynor have had a long chat about sign-ups and we'd like to ask stitchers to commit themselves to a maximum of five sign-ups at any one time. We don't want to dampen anyone's enthusiasm, it's just in case someone breaks an arm etc and is unable to complete their squares. A large number of missing sign-ups would leave us in a tight spot and we're sure you can appreciate that. :)


    Square News
    We have had a number of new stitchers in the last two weeks - presumably from World of Cross Stitching magazine. Welcome to LoveQuiltsUK! We're glad to have you with us. :)

    We have received 16 squares this week. Many thanks to all those who stitched them!
