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



We have also received pictures of Amber-Rose's quilt and Lillie-Mae's quilt which were delivered earlier this month:



Thanks to all who contributed and also Katherine for her hard work in assembling the quilts :)

Katherine hopes to be working on Jayden's quilt this week, though we are waiting for a few squares to make it across the Atlantic!


This week Evan's quilt was opened (Blue Theme)
Niamh P's quilt was opened (Fairy theme)
Max P's quilt was closed
Matty H's quilt was closed


New Applications for Quilts
We have had to take the unusual step of closing to new applications for quilts, the first time in the history of LoveQuiltsUK. We discussed the situation and we have decided we can manage 30 quilts per year between us (Katherine and Gaynor). After the delivery of Krystal's quilt this week there was a flurry of applications taking the total number of quilts for 2011 to 34! We have decided we will take all 34, but we can't physically manage any more. The situation might change if we are able to recruit another quilter, so if anyone has any suggestions or wants to volunteer, please let us know!

We will reassess the situation in June 2011 and we will definitely have re-opened by August 2011 to take applications for 2012. In the meantime, we still have several quilts waiting to open and of course we continue to accept Any Child Squares.
