Quilt News
This week, Eleanor's quilt (Princess theme) has been delivered!



Thank you to all who contributed a square!

No quilting has been done this week as Katherine has been very busy with the children over half-term and Gaynor is very busy in work. Katherine will be back working on Elizabeth's horse quilt when the children go back to school on Tuesday!


Quilts opened/closed
Lilia Rania's quilt was opened and closed this week. Rania is not a well little girl, so we are doing this quilt as a semi-emergency one. Thank you to those who have signed up to do donkey and bee squares.


Size of Aida
Can we remind you that the size of Aida for your squares should be 13" by 13", or at a very minimum, 12", with a maximum design size of 9". Although the vast majority of stitchers are conforming to these dimensions, we have received a couple of squares that are around 11". When we wash the square we get some shrinkage on top, so please try to keep to 13"!

If you intend to stitch several squares, it might be worth investing in a square metre of Aida which cuts down very nicely into 9 squares. Buying in bulk works out cheaper too! :)


Square News
We have received an amazing 27 squares this week! Many thanks to all those who stitched them! Val delivered her squares to Katherine in person this time. Not many LQUKers have met in real life - even Katherine and Gaynor have only met up once so it was great to put a "face to a name"!
