LoveQuilts UK News


News 01 Jan 2022



Happy New Year, everyone. Please be advised that Kat currently has Covid :( and will not be uploading any squares until she is better. Please do keep sending your squares as normal, Kat's family are currently all negative and the squares are delivered to a locked postbox in Kat's porch so will be safe there. We'll keep you informed.


2021 Review of the Year


Welcome to our review of 2021!

This was the 13th year for LoveQuiltsUK. We continued to create quilts for children against the background of the Covid pandemic. For the first few months of the year, the UK was in lockdown while waiting for our first doses of vaccine. We ceased quilting operations temporarily, resuming in April. We are very lucky to have such dedicated quilters who worked so hard to clear the backlog when lockdown lifted, a very special thanks to all of them.

Here are some statistics on what we have achieved in 2021:

Total squares received in 2021: 2361 squares

We also passed the 22,000 square mark this year!

Total quilts delivered in 2021: 192 quilts (4 of these were emergency quilts and 44 were backfilled quilts)

This brings our overall total to 1735 quilts since 2008. :)

A massive THANK YOU to every one of you who have sent in your lovely squares, quilted them together into fab quilts, or fundraised for us this year!.

Thank you again to everyone for your continuing support throughout these difficult times.



We have a few people that we would like to mention specifically for their efforts this year:

Kat
Kat has kept receiving/uploading squares and sending out quilt packs each month, despite still being in full-time caring job with very long hours, all under the shadow of Covid. Well done Kat for everything you do for LQUK!

Gaynor
Gaynor has continued her efforts in sourcing fabric, doing the administration and maintaining the website. Well done, Gaynor.

Mrs T
All fabric is pre-washed prior to going out to quilters to account for colour runs and cotton shrinkage. Mrs T (Gaynor's Mum) has washed a lot of the fabric and duvet covers used for LQUK once again this year. Thank you Mrs T, who was 80 this year! A particular frenzy of activity took place during a week of very hot weather during June.

Leanda and Heather
For generally for helping with "back-room" admin - for example tracking down duplicate uploads of squares, locating squares that have jumped on to the wrong quilt page on the website, tidying up the contents of the kids' webpages, helping to suggest sets of squares for backfills and more. As well as this, they have also been fundraising for us (see below)

Cards
Thank you Sandra (Wright) for organising the cards we send out with the quilts via our Facebook group, and chased them up so that they all come in on time, and made other arrangements when necessary! She also has organised sufficient cards for the many backfilled quilts we have done this year (see below)

Backfilled quilts
A big thank you to those who have undertaken labels for backfilled quilts this year - this made an extra 44 quilts possible. A special mention to Jan Garton who has created many of the labels for backfilled quilts this year, often at fairly short notice.

Also, thank you to those who sent in cards to be held in reserve for backfilled quilts, and to Sandra for organising these, it is really appreciated.

Pattern creators
Thank you so much for those who created patterns for our Pattern listing this year. We have a large collection of legal charts now which makes themes such as Disney and Harry Potter possible

Pattern listing
We maintain a separate Pattern Listing of patterns created for LQUK. This year, Christina McDonald has taken on the task of keeping it maintained and linking a picture of stitched patterns so that stitchers can browse them more easily. This background work can sometimes go unnoticed, so a big thank you to Christina for keeping this up to date for us!

Chart permission
A massive thank you to Clare Bray for her high success rate in approaching companies for permission to chart our own patterns of their copyrighted characters - this year she approached the BBC for permission to chart Pudsey Bear, and also successfully approached the creator of Mr Tumble. This has lead to our first Mr Tumble quilts. He is particularly popular among kids with language difficulties due to his use of Makaton.

LQUK Calendar 2022
Sticking with Clare Bray, Clare also created our LQUK Calendar 2022 and negotiated with a new printer (due to the old one having retired!) Thank you Clare, and to everyone who bought a calendar, raising vital funds.

Emergency Quilts
Many thanks to Leanda and Heather for continuing to store the emergency quilt stash and sending them out quickly, sometimes at extremely short notice. Also thanks to the others who are storing emergency quilts they have made.


Fundraising
We have managed to keep funds at comfortable levels! Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to funds this year, it is really appreciated.

A special mention to the below who organised specific fundraising events (Please let us know if we've left anyone out so we can add you!)

  • Gail Carr-Walker sold a crocheted blanket for us

  • Mary Davies raised £130 through her quilted items fundraising

  • Jan made bags and lap quilts for sale and raised £100. Many thanks to you Jan for your efforts.

  • Katie ran a brilliant Christmas stall at a fayre and subsequently sold Christmas decorations online for us and raised a brilliant £250!

  • Heather, Jill and Leanda have made and sold lap quilts for us (Leanda has also sold weighted blankets)

  • Marie Firth for her fundraising efforts (eg sale of microwave bowl holders)

  • Sandra has sold masks to raise funds for us, thank you, Sandra!

  • Thank you to everyone who has sent in cover kits to Heather to use for fundraising

  • Thank you to everyone who has clicked the Easyfundraising.co.uk or Amazon Smile cashback buttons this year, and also those who have taken part in the Easyfundraising "extra" competitions like Spin the Wheel in November and Advent Calendar in December. This year we received £401.52 from Easyfundraising for the first three quarter of the year, with the last quarter still to come.

  • Everyone who has quietly sent in cash, cheques, Paypal donations, etc. this year it has been very gratefully received!

    Thank you so much once again to you all!!


    Support from Businesses
    A big thank you to Morton Post Office for their continuing support in 2021 - always a pleasant chat and £1 off every parcel for LQUK - open on Sundays too! Also a special mention to Kat's postman, Mike :)

    Thank you Katzstitch who have catered to LQUK stitchers by selling Aida in our required size (13 x 13 inches) and offering a discount on top.

    Thank you to Kim Hubble who has offered discount Zweigart Aida via our Facebook group.

    Also thank you to Kate of Lakeside Needlecraft who also sells suitable Aida.

    In Memoriam
    We would like to pay tribute to the following children who sadly passed away in 2021: Abigail H Levi L Oliver D Remi H Nina P

    We send their families our very best wishes and hope that 2022 will bring them happier times.



    And finally...
    No year review would be complete without taking a look back at the quilts that were delivered this year. A vast amount of time and effort has gone into the following quilts, thank you so much to everyone who contributed to them:
