Quilt News
It has been another busy month at LQUK! Kat has been down to visit Gaynor. They spent some of the time shopping for fabric for emergency quilt packs at Lee Mill Fabrics in Swansea! They also went on a few nice walks around the Gower Coast:




Two quilts have been delivered since our last update:

Chantelle J's quilt (Flowers with butterflies and dragonflies) - quilted by Carol:

We also have an emergency quilt in the post to Melody D quilted by Rebecca.

Leanda has completed her first quilt (Winnie the Pooh emergency quilt):



Rebecca has completed a lovely Jungle Emergency quilt:



Thank you to everybody involved in these quilts!

There are many quilts being made up at the moment - these include Lilly M, Paddy B, Riordan S, Scarlett R, Sophie R, Teddy T and Tommy C. We thank the quilting volunteers for their enthusiastic response for taking these quilts on :)

We have also sent out 6 quilt packs to new quilters Heather and Leanda - these ladies have been cross stitchers with us for quite a while and have recently taken quilting classes. Their group, Patchwork Parade Quilting Group are shortly to take on 4 of these quilts in a weekend quilting marathon. Good luck ladies!

A further two quilts are being assembled by Sarah and will be shown to some of the stitchers who are meeting up in Manchester next weekend! Well done Sarah!
