Hello everyone! We are already 7 weeks into 2024. It's been a wet and windy year so far, perfect for a bit of stitching and quilting!

Gaynor will be away on a work trip to France from 3rd March - 17th March but may still be online now and again for LQ queries :)

Children in the lottery system
The number of kids in our lottery system dropped to below 30 recently which we haven't seen in over 10 years! These days social media algorithms are different so not as many people see our posts as they used to. If you know a family with a child with a lifelong or life limited illness who might appreciate a quilt, please do let them know about us. After appealing on our Facebook group we have already got quite a few new kids enrolled into the lottery.


Lap quilts
The sale of occasional lap quilts for fundraising continues, there are a couple currently for sale on our Facebook Fundraising Facebook page

    2023 Review of the Year


    Welcome to our review of 2023!

    This was the 15th year of LoveQuiltsUK - let's have a look back!

    Here are some statistics about 2023 and what we achieved:

    Total squares received in 2023: 1941 squares

    We are now well over 25,000 squares - 26,795 squares at the time of writing.

    Total quilts delivered in 2023: 169 quilts (2 of these were emergency quilts and 21 were backfilled quilts)

    There are a also a number of quilts waiting to be posted that we held back due to the Christmas post chaos!

    Our overall quilt total is 2081 quilts since 2008. :)

    A massive THANK YOU to everyone involved, through stitching, quilting, creating patterns, fundraising for us this year!

    Thank you so much for your support - it's lovely to see people working on our quilt projects - some have contributed over many years and others have found us and joined us more recently, but it's all one big happy LQ family:)

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

    Kat
    Kat has received and uploaded all the nearly 2,000 squares we have received (no small task!) and sent out quilt packs to quilters each month. This has been done while working in a full-time caring job with very long hours. Well done Kat for everything you do for LQUK!

    Gaynor
    Gaynor has continued sourcing fabric to send on to Kat, doing the administration and generally keeping things going on the IT front. Thank you, Gaynor.

    Mrs T
    Mrs T is now in her 80s, but has still washed quite a few of the duvet covers for the quilt backings this year (to account for colour runs and cotton shrinkage.) Thank you Mrs T for all your help.

    Leanda and Heather
    Leanda and Heather support Gaynor and Kat a lot in the background - 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, approving new members to the Facebook group, helping to suggest sets of squares for backfills and more. Thank you very much ladies!

    Spotting duplicate signups Thanks to Sandra, Jan G, Leanda and Heather who have been helping Gaynor to spot duplicate signups this year and helping to keep the quilts in order.

    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, sometimes at short notice!

    Backfilled quilts
    A big thank you to Jan Garton who has created many of the labels for backfilled quilts this year. We did a lot of backfilled quilts in the first half of 2023 in particular and Jan helped us out - sometimes at very short notice!. This made an extra 21 quilts possible. Thank you Jan!

    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 popular themes such as Disney and Harry Potter possible. Some really lovely patterns have appeared this year, thank you so much for your efforts!

    Pattern listing
    We maintain a separate Pattern Listing of patterns created for LQUK. Christina McDonald has been keeping it maintained for us and linking pictures of stitched patterns to them so that stitchers can look through them to find patterns of interest. A big thank you to Christina for her work on this resource!

    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's success stories are Paramount for Spongebob and Paw Patrol and CBeebies characters too. Thank you, Clare!

    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.

    LQ Calendar 2024
    Thank you so much to Clare Bray for designing and printing our LQ Calendar. Also thank you to those who bought a calendar. The calendars are now with their new owners ready for the year ahead!

    Fundraising
    We have managed to keep funds sufficient to keep us going this year! We really appreciate the support with this, especially in difficult economic times. - we really could not carry on without donations!

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

  • Jan Simmons, Heather, Leanda and Sandra have raised hundreds of pounds between them this year for lap-quilts, bags/pouches and other items. Thank you, ladies! Also thank you to those who donated panels which were incorporated into these items.
  • Krystie for her hand made Christmas cards.
  • Elaine Martin for selling magazines on eBay for us
  • We received £71.98 from "GiveBack Weekend" - thank you to all who voted for us!
  • Several people have offered charts, books and other items in return for a donation to LQUK
  • A few people have donated to us in lieu of sending Christmas cards - thank you very much!
  • Many thanks to those who have organised donations from their work to us. A massive thank you to the above for their efforts of LQUK.

    Easyfundraising
    Thank you to everyone who has used the Easyfundraising.co.uk this year, and also those who have taken part in the Easyfundraising "extra" competitions like Spin the Wheel and Advent Calendar in December. This year we received a huge £732.84 from Easyfundraising - with 2023 Quarter 4 still to come. All the small cashbacks really do add up!

    Also, a massive thank you for 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 - Aida
    Thank you to Kim Hubble who has offered discount Zweigart Aida via our Facebook group.

    Thank you to Zoe's Gifts and Crafts who have catered to LQUK stitchers by doing a special price for 13" x 13" squares.

    Also thank you to Katzstitch and Kate of Lakeside Needlecraft who have catered to LQUK stitchers by selling Aida in our required size (13 x 13 inches).

    In Memoriam
    We would like to pay tribute to the following children who sadly passed away in 2023: Jack C Jamie S

    We send their families lots of love.



    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!

    Hello everyone and compliments of the season! :)

    Just having a catch-up of the last several weeks, thank you all for your continuing support.

    Gaynor and Kat have been very busy of late, but now enjoying a few days to wind down and catch up over Christmas and New Year. We hope you have had a lovely Christmas season and look out for the LQ Review of the Year 2023 coming over the next few days!
