    Patterns
    Some of our creative supporters have been hard at work creating patterns for LQUK use (with the permission of copyright holders to use their characters where appropriate). You can see the patterns here: Pattern listing

    We have asked the pattern charters to concentrate on patterns that are difficult to legally source elsewhere eg Marvel Superheroes, Disney etc which we have permission to chart.

    Please note that you need to be a member of our Facebook group to access these patterns (due to the need to keep them semi-private for copyright considerations). Our Facebook group is here if you would like to join: LQUK Facebook Group

    Quilt News
    Hello everyone! Unfortunately the hot weather seems to have disappeared and we're back to warmish weather with drizzle - much more like the British summers we are used to. Gaynor has had a few days off for good behaviour ;-) and has been away to Cornwall. Kat is busy at work, but continues to upload the squares she's received as often as she can.

    7 quilts have been delivered since our last update, with about another 8 in the post, so look out for the next news update for those!

    Archie M's quilt (Harry Potter) - quilted by Sandra (Beds):

    Thank you very much to everyone who participated in making these quilts.


    Square cleanliness
    A few squares have come in stained lately and have had to be re-washed and in a few extreme cases, treated with bleach on an ear-bud as a last resort(!) After washing, if you can still see a hoop mark, it probably needs a machine wash to get it out (slow spin, inside a pillowcase). If you do spill tea or similar on your square while stitching, just run it under the tap straightaway - once it dries in it's very difficult to shift!
