Quilt News
This week, Katherine has been working on Scott's quilt and Gaynor has been working on Lilia Rania's quilt.

Laura's quilt was received this week. Many thanks to all of you who stitched and donated a square. Here is a picture - you can just make out the top of Laura's head in the ball pool!




Quilts opened/closed
We have opened two new Stitch-a-longs with themes that are particularly popular with kids at the moment:

Stitch-a-long: Hello Kitty's quilt was opened
Stitch-a-long: Disney Pixar Cars's quilt was opened


World of Cross Stitching Article
About two months ago, Katherine and Gaynor were contacted by Iona Lister of World of Cross Stitching magazine with a view to doing an article on LoveQuiltsUK. We were very excited by this and provided Iona with information and photographs, obtaining permission from the children's parents.

We are pleased to tell you that we are appearing in World of Cross Stitching magazine Issue 177 where we have a full-page spread. Please note that Issue 177 is not on general sale until next week, but those of you who order it by post will already have received it. (It's the issue with "Fizzy Moon" Bear and Rabbit on the front cover)

Many thanks to World of Cross Stitching magazine for providing us with such great publicity. :)

    Quilt News
    This week, Katherine has completed Laura's quilt and it is now in the post. So we hope to bring you news about her quilt next week.

    We also received a picture of Jayden with his quilt this week (his was the farm quilt which was delivered back in February):




    Meetings in Lincolnshire
    Gaynor went up to Lincolnshire to stay with Katherine for a few days this week, and a lot of time was spent sorting out fabric. We got out all the fabric we had and trashed Katherine's living room:





    We had a very, very long session of sorting out fabric for quilts on Tuesday night. We now know we have fabric, wadding and backing sorted out for the next 12 quilts, apart from Lilia Rania's which Gaynor will shop for next week.

    On Wednesday, we had lots of visitors! They were Karen Guy, Lis Neilsen and Claire Lawrence from Corby Glen, all of whom stitched for Brendan's Tatty Teddy quilt. Also, we met Brendan himself and his mum Denise! Last, but not least, Katherine's sister Vic, our stamp queen, also joined us.

    Here is Brendan with his quilt:



    And here are all of us with Brendan and his quilt:

    Square News
    There are a quite a few squares past their due date which is a little worrying to us, particularly those which are now 6 weeks late. Please try to get your squares to us on time. Apart from anything else, we'd rather spend our time quilting than chasing up squares! We've already heard that some late squares are on their way and we will have to dip into the Any Child stocks for the rest if required.

    We have received 12 squares this week! Many thanks to all those who stitched them!

    Thank you very much to those who have given cash donations this week, it is very much appreciated. Also thank you very much to Hannah from the Wiggly Bags Facebook Group who donated some fabric that was unsuitable for Wiggly bags, but fine for us.


    And Finally...
    We have heard from Cross Stitch Crazy magazine that we have been selected as their Club of the Month! We have won £100 worth of Past Impressions goodies. We will work out how best to use this prize for the benefit of LoveQuiltsUK. Many thanks to Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, we are delighted!

    Thank you to everyone who contributed a square for Freya and also mum Roberta for providing us with such cute photos!

    The last square finally arrived for Laura's quilt so Katherine has been working hard on it all week and is now at the binding stage.

    The next quilt after Laura's will be Scott's quilt. We have heard that Scott is very poorly at the moment so have decided to move his quilt up. Luckily, all the squares are already in.


    Stamps
    We have received two large packages of stamps this week from anonymous benefactors - so if you are reading this, thank you very much!


    Book Sale
    Gaynor has been holding a second-hand book sale at her office in work and has raised £10 so far.
