Addison-Hope’s quilt has closed. Our second child sign-up is now under way. The next Stitch-A-Long has opened. This is an “I Spy” quilt which we hope will be a lot of fun to stitch for.
Four more people have joined our Facebook page; we are slowly creeping up to 100 members. Some of you have been very actively sharing our group with your friends – thank you. We’ve made an A4 size poster up that you can print and put up on the noticeboards of groups you associate with. It is in PDF format, so please PM or email if you would like a copy.
Diana and Val are busy washing and drying material. The washing part is easy, but drying is a challenge in this wintry weather.
6 squares were received this week. Thank you to Donna Ryan, Sandra Wright, and Tracey Jarman. It is very exciting to see them arrive – a bit like Christmas!

Since our last news update Maxwell’s quilt has closed to stitchers, and Addison-Hope’s has been opened. Addi is our first girl sign-up so we can now enjoy some girlie patterns and colours. The Sea Shell Stitch-A-Long is nearly full, just a couple of spaces still open. When that closes that will mean we have three Emergency quilts on the go.
Our Facebook membership now stands at 72 – welcome to all our new friends. Some of you have posted pictures of squares you have finished in anticipation of quilts opening up – now that is planning ahead!
Ruth Swinton’s square, and Judith Saebel’s cards arrived safely. Thank you ladies – they look wonderful.

Our launch is complete! Our first LQAu sign-up child opened this week. Kathryn secured the first stitcher sign-up for this quilt – congratulations! Maxwell’s application was actually received a couple of weeks ago but he’s had a very rough time in the interim, so we held off opening his quilt till we were more certain the time frame to complete it would be suitable for him. This is why the Emergency quilts we’ve started will be so helpful. Some children do not enjoy the luxury of time.
The Sea Shell Stitch-A-Long was also opened.
During the week we had contact with Linde from Q4K, which had to close last year. Linde still has some unused squares, and she is going to send them through to us. So, if any of you had sent squares to Q4K and had not seen them used, they may very well end up in a LQAu quilt. We’ll try and make use of these straight away for Emergency quilts.
Another 4 people signed up for our Facebook membership – welcome!
It has been exciting to see the posts on Facebook of the squares that some of you have completed; it’s going to be like an early Christmas when these arrive.
Thank you very much for your continued donations and support.

This past week has seen our first signed-up squares arrive from Beth Filmer – thank you Beth. More completed squares have been displayed on our Facebook page; we are looking forward to seeing them arrive safely.
We now have 55 Facebook members.
Diana made good use of some wonderful donations that came in and took advantage of a local fabric store sale. The end result is a lovely variety of theme fabric to choose from for up-coming quilts. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this.
After a request from New Zealand, a decision was made to extend the LQAu territory to include NZ. Because international postage will be an issue for completed quilts, the thought is to collect the squares and top quilt fabrics here in Australia, and post these to a quilter in NZ for completion.
Thank you everyone for your continued support for this project.
