News 04 Jun 2017 - 11 Jul 2017



Hello everyone! Hope those of you in the UK have been enjoying the nice weather we've been having lately, although it is raining again today in Wales!

Gaynor has been on holiday to Jersey for a few days which was a very nice place. We have never done a quilt for anyone on Jersey, although we have done two for Guernsey over the years.

Kat is working even longer hours at the moment (15-16 hour days) so we do apologise for the delays in uploading squares to the website, please bear with us.

Thank you so much to you all for contributing to the huge amount of work involved in these quilts!


Backfilled quilts
An extra thank you to the quilters who have taken on extra quilts (quilts made with squares from our Any Child Stash only, rather than through specific signups). We have certainly chipped away at our Any Child Square stash lately.


Team Superhero
We would like to thank everyone who has answered the call for Superhero squares lately - we have 29 requests for Superheroes from children in our lottery system currently. Since there are so many Superhero movies scheduled to be released in the next few years, there is no end in sight for demand for these squares!

We have permission to chart the Marvel characters from the copyright holder, and we'd like to thank Beth and Gemma for doing some great Superhero patterns, with some brand new ones over the last 2-3 weeks. These are posted in the Files section of our Facebook group where it is slightly more private (as these patterns are for LQ use only).

If you are not on Facebook, we are happy to email you the patterns to use for LQ. Please contact us on contact@lovequiltsuk.com . Keep the superheroes coming - and you are all superheroes for stitching them! :)

    News 02 Apr 2017 - 06 May 2017


    Spring is here and we've had another busy month with lots of quilts being delivered!

    Polycotton Aida
    We've noticed an increase in polycotton Aida squares being sent in. Could we ask stitchers to double-check that they are using 100% cotton (usually the Aida that is much cheaper than usual is polycotton). You can check by taking a thread of your Aida and setting fire to it (watch your fingers!) If it's cotton it will burn away to nothing. If it's polycotton it will melt.

    Polycotton also melts under a hot iron, so it makes things more difficult for our quilters :)

    A great source for Aida is Katzxstitch who sell budget cotton Aida already cut into our 13"x13" size. They also offer a discount code (please ask on our Facebook group or email us about this as they asked us not to post the code on our website)


    Quilt News
    Gaynor has been to visit Kat in Lincolnshire and we have done lots of sorting out of squares for future backfilled quilts.
