Quilt News
We have had two lovely quilts delivered this week!

Firstly, Lennon's quilt with a Space theme was delivered.



Secondly, Tia-Rose's quilt was delivered:



Tia-Rose is currently in hospital, so the quilt arrived at a particularly good time for her. She now has it on her hospital bed and has shown it to all the nurses!

Both gorgeous quilts - thank you so much to quilters Yvonne and Carol and all you stitchers, also those who send in donations which allow us to buy materials such as fabric, wadding, thread etc. We think smiles like Tia-Rose's really do make it all worthwhile!

We have also heard from our quilters Sue + Margaret that Joshua D's quilt is complete and was posted on Friday, so we hope to bring you news about his quilt very soon :)

Gaynor has completed Niamh's quilt but it has not been posted yet. We have had permission off Niamh's mum for Gaynor's mum to use her quilt at an Arts and Crafts Exhibition next weekend to raise funds for LQUK. Gaynor will post the quilt off immediately after this, on Monday 17th October.

We have now completed 30 quilts this year which is more than we ever imagined at the beginning of the year when we only had a rather burnt-out Katherine and Gaynor doing all the quilting! Thanks so much to all the new quilters who are helping LQUK go from strength to strength :)


Cross Stitch Crazy Magazine
Katherine and Gaynor have been approached by Cross Stitch Crazy magazine to run an article about LoveQuiltsUK which we are told will appear in their Issue 159 which will be on sale the week of November 24th. Thanks to the parents of Freya, Evan and Brendan who have furnished us with high-quality copies of the children with their quilts. We don't yet know which photos will be used, but we are really grateful for your help.
