2010 Review of the Year
2010 was the third year of LoveQuiltsUK. We have had a good year with a lot of new stitchers joining us and a lot of old stitchers continuing to stitch for us this year! Thanks to everyone who has so kindly stitched and donated squares for LoveQuiltsUK kids. Also thanks to those who have sent donations of cash and fabric, we couldn't keep going without your generosity - thank you very much!
Our website was redesigned in April which allows us to better organise the quilts and square sign-ups and we can tell you that the total squares since then have been: (drum roll!)
Total squares since April 20th 2010: 368 squares!
Katherine continues to do a fantastic job as our main quilter. Gaynor has taken up quilting this year and has done a few quilts to help Katherine out. She has also taken over some of the administration via the website/email.
27 Quilts were completed in 2010! (50 overall since 2008)
Here are the quilts we completed in 2010:
Happy New Year to all and here's looking forward to making more children smile in 2011!
