We have lots of news to tell you about this week!

Katherine has finished Amber-Rose's quilt. She is now working on Lilly May's and Lillie Mae's quilts. Since Amber-Rose and Lillie-Mae are twins, we have decided to wait until both quilts are complete before we send them, so watch this space! Gaynor has cut out the fabric pieces for Abigail's quilt, just waiting for one last square to arrive.

Just to remind you, we have a deadline coming up on 15th December 2010 for Krystal S (Princesses), Lennon Georgie (Noah's Ark) and Elizabeth (Horses)'s quilts. Still quite a few squares to come in on those, but I'm sure you all have it in hand!

This week Faith M's quilt was opened (Pink Theme) and Toni C's quilt was closed. There are still a few signups remaining for Seraphina and Scott W. We currently have 4 children on our "Coming Soon" list.


We have received 28 squares this week! Many thanks to all those who stitched them! The unusually high number is due to Katherine receiving the Any Child Squares from Karen, some of which had not appeared on the website before, so a belated thanks for those. Particular thanks to the ladies who did the 9 Country hearts squares. We have decided to put 4 of them on to Toni C's quilt as sign-ups were going very slowly, and the rest on to the World Landmarks quilt we intend to make (when we have a minute!) This means that both Toni C's and the World Landmarks quilts are now full, so that has worked out very well.

    Anne-Marie, Upper Bucklebury, England (for Toni C)
    Emma, Cheltenham, UK (for Krystal S)

  • We have had a good week for fabric donations too. Katherine and Gaynor often purchase duvet covers off eBay to "strip for parts" for the backs of quilts to keep costs down. While we use new 100% cotton fabric for the fronts of quilts, duvet cover fabric is very suitable for the back and saves a lot of money.

    Gaynor advertised on her work email to see if anyone had any unwanted duvet covers they wouldn't mind donating for free. The response was very good indeed with 15 duvet covers being donated by three ladies. This will save LoveQuiltsUK literally hundreds of pounds so many thanks to Emily, Denise and Karen at Swansea Metropolitan University! (See Fabric page for details)

    Also thanks to those who have donated cash with their square this week, it is very much appreciated.

    Happy Stitching!
