Quilt News
There is lots of quilt news to report!

Faith's quilt has been delivered. Many thanks to all the stitchers and to our new quilter Liz and her family members who assembled it!



We have also had word that Matty H (Trains), Jack B (Soft animals) and Max P (CBeebies characters/vehicles) quilts have been completed by quilters Melanie, Joy and Joyce respectively, and they are now in the post. Look out for news on them next week.

Rhea's quilt is also under construction and next on the list is Poppy's quilt (pink theme) which Katherine and Gaynor are currently sorting out.

We received news this week that Edward Y was extremely poorly, so Katherine and Gaynor decided to elevate his quilt to Emergency status. Fortunately, we already had 9 squares in and we made up the last 3 from our Any Child stash. Our quilter Anna very kindly worked extremely hard to make up the quilt quickly and Edward's quilt was delivered just five days later. Special thanks to Anna for her efforts, Katherine for organising the squares and fabric at short notice and also to Pascale who rushed her two squares directly to Anna for us.

Edward is now at home, but he is still very poorly. Many thanks to ALL the stitchers who have contributed towards this quilt.




Square News
Since the last news update two weeks ago, we have received 41 squares! It is amazing how many squares are flooding in now - thanks so much to all of you, and also to Katherine who spends so many hours photographing them and uploading them to the website for us.

    Quilt News
    No quilts have been delivered this week, but lots of work is going on in the background. Joan has been working on Callum's quilt and it was posted yesterday. Joy and Joyce are working on Jack B and Max P's quilt and Liz is working on Faith's quilt.

    Joanne has completed the World Landmarks quilt! We are absolutely delighted as we have had these squares on our hands for a long time - prior to the Popular Patchworking magazine article we were snowed under just keeping up with the named child quilts. However, Joanne has completed the quilt for us, and it looks absolutely fab! We will keep the quilt for an emergency request - when it comes, we'll be able to send it out straight away. A big thanks to Joanne for her efforts!
