Love Quilts UK

It’s been a while since I stitched anything for Love Quilts and when an email dropped into my mail box recently thanking for me my contribution, I was suprised, and delighted. That was when I remembered how much I loved cross stitching fo them.

Love Quilts UK makes quilts for children under the age of nineteen who suffer from life threatening or life long illnesses.

I started stitching for them in 2012 when I applied for one for my sister. Each quilt contains twelve cross stitch squares and the child or parent chooses the theme.

As a stitcher, you would check the website regularly to see if any quilts were opening up and failing that, you can stitch an ‘Any Child’ square. These are usually used to make up emergency quilts, or to fill an incomplete quilt.

So the email I received was an ‘Any Child’ square I had stitched in May 2013. So no wonder I had forgoten! In the email, we usually get a message from the family. and in this one we received the following:

“Thank you so much for the absolutely amazing quilt, we as a family are completely in love with it. The detail and quality is completely incredible.”

It makes it so worthwhile seeing this messages and having been on the receiving end, I really don’t know which is more of a thrill – receiving the quilt or seeing a quilt I have contributed to.

You can see all the squares I’ve stiched here.

All these quilts are simply stunning, don’t you think?
